About the Homestay
I have a lovely detached bungalow, 3 min walk from the beach and Blackrocks promenade
The master en-suite is large and very elegant
I'm an ex-restauranteur so my kitchen is very important and I'm very happy to cook for my guests.
Outside, I have a lovely decking area with outdoor fireplace for relaxing and drinks!
Blackrock is a beautiful seaside village in Louth with lovely restaurants, cafes, Ireland's best music store and a fabulous vintage clothing business

Susan is a lovely lady who is very welcoming. The room is very nice and the bed is comfortable , I slept like a baby and woke refreshed. The kitchen is a bright and pleasant space to eat and relax. If you are offered a taster of Susan’s excellent cooking, I would highly recommend it.
Lovely house in a very quiet neighborhood; Susan is a very nice woman, easy going and also a great chef. She made a gorgeous meal for my whole family: lasagna, guinness pie and tiramisu'!! Thank you for your kindness!
Finalment no vaig poder anar a casa seva per un imprevist, pero va ser molt amable buscant-me un nou allotjament que estava molt be.
Finalmente no pude ir a su casa por un imprevisto, pero fué muy amable buscandonos un nuevo alojamiento que estaba muy bien.
Finally I could not go to his house for an unexpected, but he was very kind looking for a new accommodation that was very good.
Susan è stata una splendida persona. Nonostante per problemi dovette disdire la mia prenotazione si è adoperata in modo ineccepibile per ripagare questo disguido. Grazie
