Whether you’re there for the whiskey distilleries, the lively nightlife, or historic landmarks, Dublin has plenty to offer any curious traveller. But if you want to feel a part of the city, yet have the luxuries of a hotel, an apartment stay could be for you. Here are some of the best apartments for your next trip to Dublin.
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.
A cosy refuge from the busy city, Claredon Hall is tucked just around the corner from the hustle and bustle. Local interior designers have created a bright apartment with premium facilities. The proximity to exceptional restaurants and local pubs is an added bonus and the green space of the famous St Stephen’s Green is just a few minutes’ walk from the building.
Named after one of Ireland’s most famous sons, this 4-bedroom suite is centrally located and the enormous living room is perfect for entertaining before a night out in the many nearby bars and restaurants. The apartment is furnished with Neff appliances and the central attraction is a modern dining island.
If you’re considering coastal accommodation within reach of the city, the Georgian Rooms Howth are right up your street. You could spend your days hiking the coastal paths around Dublin Bay enjoying the views, or chatting to locals in harbourside pubs. The bright lights of the city centre are a short train ride away, ideal for a night out on the town. The Georgian Rooms offer sophistication, luxury and traditional hospitality.
Prime location is difficult to come by in Dublin, but Zanzibar Locke is so close to the Ha’penny bridge that you could throw a ha’penny at it! The hip Temple Bar area is metres away from the newly refurbished Georgian building which hides modern high-spec apartments, workspaces, a cocktail bar restaurant and a workout studio within its historic walls.
The cultural quarter of Dublin is found in Temple Bar, where the atmosphere is buoyant and bustling. If you’re wanting to make the most of this district, then these apartments are for you. Brushing up against some of Dublin’s most popular bars, restaurants and clubs, you’ll have everything you need at your fingertips, and you’ll be fully equipped with modern facilities.
Charm, sophistication and discerning are three words that may well describe the lead singer of U2, but they can equally be attributed to this luxurious apartment situated in one of Dublin’s most sought-after addresses. Guests have the entire 4-floor house to themselves and will appreciate the velvet fabrics, contemporary furniture and high-end Miele appliances.
These apartments have all the benefits and amenities of a hotel, with the bonus of your own cooking, dining and workspace facilities. This complex houses one- and two-bed apartments plus penthouses, and it’s close to some of Dublin’s most historic buildings, theatres and most interesting attractions. The lively Temple Bar area is just a 5-minute walk away.
Dublin’s Docklands have become the place to be seen in recent years. The 3Arena has hosted some of the world’s biggest stars, the Bord Gais Energy Theatre is the largest venue of its kind in Ireland and has hosted West End and Broadway shows. Beckett Locke is ideally placed for guests to enjoy the best this refined area of Dublin has to offer. Guests are invited to Work, Play, Create in the cocktail bar, all day restaurant and co-working space.
