Staycity Serviced Apartments St Augustine Street are in a great location only approximately 8 minutes by bus to Dublin’s famous Temple Bar. For those who would rather avoid the rather touristy Temple Bar area, the apartments are only approximately 13 minutes by bus to the popular Grafton Street.
As the apartments are centrally located they offer easy access to the attractions of Dublin and are also ideal for those on business.
We had a fantastic View of Dublin from these Dublin serviced apartments! The big patio windows offered loads of light and fresh air.
These Dublin serviced apartments are just around the corner from Ireland’s oldest pub The Brazen Head which is totally worth a visit for the atmosphere. This picture was taken early in the day so a good time to come for a lunch. However it is towards the evening and night that the place really comes alive. The walls are covered with worldwide bank notes and comments from people who have visited from all over the world.
There are friendly unassuming staff in this establishment with good pub grub and pints of the black stuff. You can get a better feel of ‘real’ Ireland and Irish people. Fantastic live music and full of ‘the craic’. A favourite with famous people visiting Dublin.
These apartments have everything you need to feel comfortable at an amazingly low rate and without compromising on quality.
The kitchen, Dining & Living Space
The completely equipped kitchen and large dining table were perfect for cooking up and serving a full breakfast before we left for our day out. There was a 24/hour shop around the corner so it was easy to pick up groceries. This saved us on food costs, but not only that, we could eat at our leisure and feel relaxed.
I do have to admit there was a brilliant little chip shop beside the garage. One evening we just didn’t fancy going to a restaurant and didn’t fancy cooking, so we simply ordered in a take away and again had the benefit of doing what we wanted, when we wanted. There was also a dishwasher… Bonus!
The living space was large and there were plenty of seats between the dining table chairs, two soft sofa chairs and a large sofa… which we handily had changed into a sofa bed at night.
The sofa bed did have its functional problems but when I mentioned this to staff, they were in fact waiting on new ones to resolve this, so the service is second to none.
The Bathroom & Laundry Facilities
As expected, the bathroom was clean and bright with clean towels appropriate to the number of guests staying and some little toiletries (for those of us who always forget them).
I would recommend that for those who like to lie in after 9am and especially if there are a few of you, to flip the switch outside the bathroom to keep the water piping hot. Or even better, simply read the information booklet on arrival (we didn’t).
As we weren’t staying long enough to need to do washing, we didn’t but we did use the iron/ ironing board. The laundry facilities make these apartments perfect for those who need to stay in Dublin for slightly longer, perhaps on business.
The double beds were massive! I shared with a friend and I didn’t even know she was there because the bed had enough space for us to peacefully sleep. There was loads of storage space too!
The staff were brilliant! Very friendly and organised taxis for us. We even had cupcakes in our room on arrival.
Cost effective, clean, modern and quiet apartments that are well connected to the sites and sounds of Dublin with everything you need for both a short or long stay. With friendly staff who always say hello and are happy to help!
