“Stunning property!”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just returned from a week's stay in this beautiful property - can't recommend it highly enough. I'd echo everything other reviewers have said. The house has everything you could want - very spacious and perfectly decorated rooms, a stunning dining room looking directly into the well-tended gardens, and a newly installed smart TV if you fancy a lazy day watching Netflix. We were lucky enough to enjoy some lovely sunny weather, which meant we could spend time in the garden, which is also equipped with a barbecue - perfect for summer entertaining. Simon and Geraldine were always on hand to provide tips and assistance as required, and left a lovely welcome pack of home made bread and scones, as well as some of the essentials - a nice touch. They made us feel very much at home, and I've no doubt the property will be in constant demand over the summer.

“Well equipped and comfortable”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is a good location about 20 minutes drive from airport and near a motor way for a quick day trip outside Dublin. The area didn't get a nod of approval from our local friends but the house was on a quiet and nice street. No problem.
Our family of 5 plus extended family stayed here for a week. It is large enough to cater a large group and still feel comfortable. Everything in the house works and is well maintained. There were 9 of us and we were struggling a bit with just 2 bathrooms. An extra toilet would help.

The outdoor kitchen was greatly enjoyed by the men and cooked very efficiently. We all enjoy the small but lovely garden.

There are loads of board games for children.

Simon is nice and always on call when we needed help.

“Quiet, Clean, Comfy, Large Vacation Rental”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at this Vacation Rental. It is in a quiet neighborhood away from the crazy big city!! Just a few minutes drive to Dublin airport. Very clean, comfy beds, lots of room for a large family. The yard has beautiful gardens and a great outdoor area to spend time outside. Simon was very nice and went out of his way to make sure we were happy!! We had a great vacation and we are glad we chose this rental to stay in! Thanks so much Simon!!

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for your feedback,I enjoyed meeting you all and I am happy you enjoyed this house as much as my family & I do as this is our family home in off season but I have to say that I wish I had green fingers but I do not and hire a great gardener from Tipperary called Anthony,I will pass your comments regarding the garden onto him as he has a real passion for gardening and I think you would agree that he is doing a fantastic job on my garden.

Give my regards to all your family and thank you once again for staying with me

Enjoy the rest of the summer

All the best and take care

“Beautiful, spacious, great location and a wonderful experience!!”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I stayed here with a group of friends and we had the most amazing time! Location was fantastic! Only about 10 minutes from Dublin City centre which was easily accessible and fairly cheap via taxi. The house is truly a work of art! Contrasting traditional granduer with quirky modern touches! The spacious bedrooms and living areas were perfect for our larger group. I fell in love with the little picturesque front garden. The back of the house exhibits a beautifully landscaped patio area which is perfect for entertaining and would be amazing for BBQ's during the summer. The owner of the property (Simon) and his house manager (Geraldine) were both very friendly and welcoming. They were very attentive and helpful providing great recommendations for restaurants and takeaways during our stay. We enjoyed their special touches such as homemade Guinness wheaten bread and freshly baked scones!! I would highly recommend this holiday rental!

“Excellent house - lovely hosts”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I travelled to Dublin from Scotland with 10 friends and we all stayed in this accomodation for 4 nights.

The team at Near City Rentals (NCR) are very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. Upon arrival the house was full of homey touches that make you smile - such as fresh scones in the kitchen and snacks in the bedrooms. NCR were both very helpful by recommending activities in the local area and by being flexible with our changes to prior arrangements. The house has excellent facilities and comfortably fitted all of us in it. The only negative comment I have is that the internet was a little bit unreliable which made it difficult to plan activities on occasions. Would thoroughly recommend to a group of friends :)
