We had visited the location last year and since it had been such a nice experience, we decided to do it again this year. We weren't disappointed!! Again, we had a clean and cosy room with ensuite and the family was friendly, welcoming and helpful. Whenever we'd go to Dublin again, this location would be our very first choice!! Thanks for having us!
