Great location, quiet upmarket area. Property really well appointed and in excellent condition.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay away from the busy central area and crowds, but only a short walk away. Transport links are a few minutes walk away. We bought Leap cards which are much better value than the tourist hop on/off and enable travel on everything, except hop on/off, within Dublin County for half the price!

Dublin is very busy but great fora short stay. I’m not sure we could have found a better apartment for our family requirements.

The accommodations were exceptionally neat & clean! Located close enough to walk into downtown or easily catch a bus. Gina & Cathal were extremely responsive to all of our needs and questions, and as we are painfully American, there were many!

Perfect get away in Dublin

  • 5 of 5

We can't say how very much we enjoyed our time in Dublin and our stay in Nautical Elegance was the perfect location and more than met all our needs for a short 3 day stay. We would love to return someday. We arrived from the US mid morning and by the time we made our transfer to the home around noon we were greeted by Gina and Cathal who showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment and gave us a very well put together booklet detailing everything we needed to know about the appliances, locations of hospitals, best local grocery stores, restaurants, etc. a great resource and we even visited one of their recommended restaurants nearby away from the crowds. Four of us were very comfortable and we were even surprised to find all the treats in the kitchen, including coffee, popcorn, etc. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you might need and there are a couple of grocery stores within 5 minute walk, one a small corner store and the other a bit larger. If you don't want to cook there are several good coffee shops, cafes, and restaurants easily within walking distance. The Hop on and Off Dublin Bus is just two blocks away and several city bus routes are nearby. Many places of interest are within walking distance, including the River Liffey, grand canal, and a local theater. it is in a very quiet and safe area away from the crowds so no worries about sleeping. We couldn't think of anything that would have made our trip more enjoyable. Cathal and Gina were very kind and helpful and quickly responded to my inquiries. We would very highly recommend Nautical Elegance for your time in Dublin.

Excellent apartment in a good location for exploring the city

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was extremely well stocked, clean and tidy with all the comforts of home. Cathal met us with the keys despite it being late on a Friday and had even got us bread and milk to supplement all the items already in the cupboards. I'd highly recommend the apartment to anyone looking to stay in the City, good restaurants nearby and close enough to walk into Temple Bar etc. For a livelier evening.

Great location in a new area of the city

  • 4 of 5

Great location in the heart of Docklands with plenty of restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance and not far from the centre of town, just enough to be quiet at night. The bathrooms could have been a little cleaner.

Owner's Response: We're sorry that you saw fit to post a negative comment but must point out that your travel companion arrived a day before you so the apartment had been used for a day before you came and hence may not have been as you expected upon your arrival. We take great care to ensure cleanliness for guests and would have been happy to call to rectify any issues if you had raised them during your stay. Also, we accommodated you with an early check in and at our own cost, express posted the phone charger you left behind to your next destination so you would have it for the rest of your holiday. We're sorry that you didn't recognise this in your review.

About Cathal & Gina Cullen

Hi, I am a Dubliner born and bred and love the city. If my family and I can help to make your trip to Dublin more enjoyable just ask. My wife, Gina, has put together a great tour guide which we leave in the apartment. Feel free to add any of your recommendations or tips. We are frequent travellers to the U.S, sometimes as often as three times a year. We have many family members and friends living there and we love to visit and keep in touch.We are always delighted to welcome guests from places we have visited.

The rejuvenated Docklands of Dublin is a great place for you to base yourself while visiting Dublin. Close enough to the major attractions yet quiet enough for a good nights sleep. There are plenty of good restaurants, bars and convenience stores practically on your doorstep. If you are feeling more adventurous why not try Wake Boarding or the Viking Splash Tour which are both just around the corner. To make sure you don't miss out any of the attractions why not take one of the many bus tours which offer two day tickets and a hop on hop off option so you can spend as long as you like exploring our great city. We particularly enjoy Kilmanham Jail which is full of history the Guinness Hop Store, home of the Black Stuff and Whiskey Corner (Whisky in Scotland) home of Jameson in Dublin.
