The kitchens have adequate refrigerator and cupboard space and are fully equipped with pots, pans, and other necessary utensils. Students share bath and shower facilities, and wireless Internet is provided. Laundry facilities are also on-site.
Shops and supermarkets are also located nearby. Keep in mind that living in central Dublin means a lot of hustle and bustle, and you can expect to do a lot of walking.
