Gorgeous view from patio and door wall. The apartment was comfortable and nicely furnished. Location was a short walk to town and nearby areas.
The heritage museum and castle are worthwhile visits. The museum provided us a detailed map of Dalkey which also listed 3 different walking tours Castle street has a vast selection of restaurants, pubs, butcher and wine shops. Our favorite for dinner was the 1909 restaurant. The DART rail system was simple to use for trips to Dublin. Owner was attentive and pleasant to work with. We hope to be able to visit again someday soon
The property is away from the centre of Dublin but accessible by train. The views are outstanding and the apartment itself is nice and compact.
GREAT VISTA IN KILLINEY, CO DUBLIN, IRELAND
THIS PROPERTY IS PERFECT SPOT FOR RELAXING
VACATION IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO DALKEY TOWN
AND ALL OF ITS WELCOMING AMENITIES ... GREAT FOR
GOING ON LONG WALKS WITH STUNNING VIEWS OF
KILLINEY BAY AND DUBLIN BAY ... IT IS SITUATED IN AN
AREA WITH STEEP HILLS SO WOULD SUGGEST GOOD
WALKING SHOES AND FIT CONSTITUTION ... APARTMENT
IS COMPACT BUT IDEAL FOR COMING AND GOING ... AND
HOST IS MOST RESPONSIVE WITH ANY QUERIES ... EVERYTHING ONE MIGHT REQUIRE IS SUPPLIED THERE AND
BEDS ARE COMFORTABLE .... AND LINENS AND TOWELS ARE
FRESH AND GOOD QUALITY .... WE DID FIND THE PILLOWS TO BE EXTRA FIRM SO MIGHT SUGGEST A COUPLE OF SOFTER
ONES AS AN OPTION ... READING PREVIOUS REVIEWS AND PLANNING ON HAVING A RENTAL VEHICLE ... WE DID CHOOSE TO HAVE A SMALLER CAR ... AND GLAD WE DID AS THE PARKING SPACE IS EXTREMELY TIGHT ... SO WE MANAGED FINE ... AND WERE GLAD OF THE CAR IF WE WANTED TO BRING UP ANY GROCERIES / BOTTLED WATER ETC.... AND NOT HAVE TO CARRY THEM UP FROM THE TOWN ... EXCELLENT SUPERMARKET RIGHT ON CASTLE STREET
AND PARKING UP BEHIND IT AND IN ADJOINING STREETS..
THE COUNTRY BAKE IS A GREAT FIND ... FRESH BREADS AND
CAKES AND PASTRIES ... AND PROVIDE FULL IRISH BREAKFAST AND GREAT COFFEE AND TEAS .... AND SEVERAL RESTAURANTS IN CLOSE PROXIMITY FOR DELICIOUS MEALS
... FINNEGANS AND THE CLUB WERE TWO GOOD SPOTS
FOR GATHERING WITH FRIENDS FOR A DRINK .... AND
CAVISTONS IN GLASTHULE / SANDYCOVE EXCELLENT PLACE FOR LUNCH OR DINNER .... MAKE SURE TO BOOK AHEAD ...
THE STATION FOR TRAIN AND DART IS ONLY TEN MINUTES
WALK FROM APARTMENT AND PLENTY OF PARKING AVAILABLE TOO ... HAVE GOOD SUPPLY OF CHANGE AS
PARKING METERS EVERYWHERE ... THE BUS ALSO RUNS FROM DALKEY TO GET TO OTHER LOCATIONS TOWARDS THE CITY .. THIS SPOT LIVED UP TO OUR EXPECTATIONS AND IS EXACTLY AS IT APPEARS ON THE RENTAL SITE .... WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT AND HOPE TO BOOK IT AGAIN IN THE FUTURE .......
THANK YOU TO THE MILLERS .....
Beautiful views as soon as you step outside! Nice and quiet area with very comfortable beds! It was really tricky to find and map quest wasn't much help. Many narrow winding roads and hard to maneuver with our rental car. We parked the car and took the DART train service most of our stay. We loved it!
Great location and stunning views
We had a lovely time staying at this apartment, which was comfortable and immaculately clean. There's a very cool little patio at the back with panoramic views of the sea that can't be beat. The kitchen is compact but very well equipped compared to similar places, and we were able to pull off a little home cooking. The neighborhood is quiet but there's plenty of activity nearby. Our host was a joy to work with and the whole process was easy and free of angst. I will definitely consider staying here again when I return.
Beautiful apartment with beautiful view
The apartment has everything you would need and is so comfortable. There’s plenty of space and convenient parking right outside. It’s peaceful but by far the best thing is the view - we couldn’t stop looking out of the window from the living room! It is stunning
