All three apartments have been recently refurbished and each apartment is elegantly decorated with its own unique style and story. The owners have scoured vintage and antique shops around the country to add that extra flare and individuality to the living spaces of The Courtyard apartments.
White & Green luxury organic cotton bed linen is used on all beds and Dalkey liquid handmade soap is provided to ensure you can fully unwind during your stay. All bedrooms are ensuite for your comfort and privacy.
There is a communal laundry area with a washing machine and a dryer and there is also a freezer in the same area if you need to store anything.
There is a lovely Courtyard area with seating for you to relax and enjoy this peaceful setting.
Although we do welcome some pets, they are on a request basis only as we would need to speak with the owner before being able to confirm. Just mention it when you are making the booking and we will enquire straight away and let you know soonest.
