I had a wonderful time at Shumei's home. I received a very warm welcome from the whole family, everybody was willing to help me. I felt like at home ! Moreover shumei's meals were just fantastic : so fresh, and tasty, I loved them. I'll be very happy to stay there again. Dear Shumei and Ling Ling, thanks for all !
Nous avons passé une superbe nuit chez Shumei ! Lits très confortables et chambres propres. Shumei et sa famille sont des hotes très sympathiques, serviables et discrets. Nous avions pris l'option du dinner et nous avons mangé un plat chinois délicieux, fait maison avec les produits de leur jardin ! Le petit plus : le petit déjeuner offert dans la nuitée ! Nous recommandons fortement ce logement.
Was amazing :) incredible incredible cook as well!
Famiglia accogliente, camera pulita, letto comodo, colazione leggera ok...cena ottima e fermata dal bus 5-7 minuti a piedi. Un po' lontano dal centro città circa 40-45,minuti ma ci sono bus frequenti. Nel complesso buon rapporto qualità\ prezzo
They are so lovely , helpfull family, confortable home , clean, place, delicious food, I highly recommend this home stay . Excellent guests
We felt really at home by Shumei's family.
Thank you Shumei for the delicious meal you prepared to us. You are a great cooker !
We will not hesitate to come back if needed.
I was very satisfay with accomodation and food and kind personal
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
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!
this house is wonderful! everyone in the house were very nice and helped me every time like real family. the room is very comfortable and very good accuses to city center. I strongly recommend this awesome house to everyone! Thank you very much!!:) 很谢谢^^
