    Pauline provided everything we needed. She is a great host. Her advise for trips was very good, she even lent us her leap card which helped a lot when we rode the bus.

    es waren ein paar schöne Tage in Dublin, an denen wir bei Pauline übernachten durften.
    Die Zimmer sind Sauber und die Betten bequem. Leider bietet Pauline kein Frühstück an.
