If it’s the heart of the action you’re looking for, the Grafton Street Studios certainly live up to that expectation. Ask anyone where the best shopping in Dublin is to be found, and invariably Grafton Street will be the answer. The apartment complex is steps away from the city’s best restaurants and some of Ireland’s top attractions. The apartments themselves are well-presented and offer all you might need for a sophisticated city stay.

2. Claredon Hall
