2 Awesome Dublin Airbnb Rentals to Live Like a Local

Why not choose short stay apartments in Dublin during your trip?

I love switching up my accommodation choices when travelling around the world. I’ve stayed in hotels, guest houses, pod rooms, a cabin in the jungle, a treehouse, glamping tents, and even airport benches or the car (I don’t recommend these last options!).

During a city break, I love staying at Airbnb apartment rentals. There’s something truly unique about spending the night in a fully furnished home. Every apartment has its own character. It’s almost like a friend welcoming you into their home for the night so you can gain a truly local experience.

As I completed a massive three week road trip around Ireland and Northern Ireland, my journey began and ended in Dublin. My flight arrived and departed from Dublin’s international airport, so it made sense to spend a day on either end of the trip in the city. Dublin served as the bookends to an incredibly memorable and fascinating trip.

It made sense to check out the apartments for rent in Dublin, Ireland. While there are a vast number of Airbnbs in Dublin, I stayed in 2 awesome Dublin Airbnb rentals where you can live like a local.

I adored the views from the windows overlooking a quaint city street. This location on Botanic Road truly feels as though you’re living in a small town outside of Dublin. However, you can easily walk to the middle of town in no time at all.

Furthermore, the apartment is within walking distance to the National Botanic Gardens.

If you have a car, please note that there is street parking available for free during the overnight hours on nearby side streets. If you need to store your vehicle somewhere all day and night, you’ll need to find a parking lot. We found that the best and cheapest solution was storing our car in an underground, secure lot at a nearby hospital for 15 Euros (24 hours of parking).

This Dublin Airbnb is on the second floor of a building, up a flight of stairs. It was no problem for us to carry our bags up a flight of stairs, but please keep this in mind if you have mobility issues.

And thankfully for those of us who are bloggers or love staying connected, the Wi-Fi is free and fast.

If you’re looking for an affordable holiday apartment in Dublin that’s within walking distance of every attraction but has a small town vibe, this Botanic Road Dublin vacation rental is the one for you.

In the kitchen, you’ll have everything you need to make a great meal, including a fridge, stovetop, oven, kettle, toaster, toaster oven, dishes, and utensils. There’s a small kitchen table to enjoy your meal, as well as a comfortable couch with a chaise lounge to relax after you’re done eating.

This apartment is up one flight of stairs. We were able to navigate these without any problems, but it’s something to keep in mind if you have mobility issues.

We parked our car right outside of the apartment on the street. After 6pm, parking is free until 7am the following day. In the evening, we were able to pre-pay for two hours of parking, which allowed us some extra time to sleep before heading to the airport.

From the apartment, we walked to the city centre within 10 minutes. If you would rather take public transit, the accommodation is really close to Connolly Station and the bus terminal.

The Wi-Fi at the apartment is included with the stay and the connection is reliable and fast.
