Beautiful home and lovely family. I'm foreign and they helped me in so many things.
The whole family is very helpful and friendly. Whenever I had a problem, they helped me and we found a solution together.
It wasn't just a host family. It was a home for me and I would definitely choose this family again.
I will miss the time and would love to come back one day.
The room is small but you have everything you need and the whole house (included the room) is clean. It's a pretty nice place in the south of Dublin.
I wished I could stay longer in Dublin and with the host family.
If you choose this family, you will not regret it.
There are not enough words to express how thankful I am to Mick and Liz during my time at their home. This family is incredibly kind, generous and fun! They made me feel at home right away and allowed me to be a part of their amazing family. My time in Ireland has been the greatest adventure with plenty of wonderful memories to hold onto. Thank you Mick and Liz and your entire family for making this such a positive experience for me. You are truly my second family! :)
Staying with Mick, Liz and their family was amazing. They are such kind and caring people which really welcome you to their home. Staying with a local family is the best way to get to know the culture of the destination country but also to get the best sightseeing secrets. Liz´s and Mick´s house is ideally located for both, to enjoy Ireland´s stunning countryside being really close to the mountains but also having very good access to the supermarket and the LUAS which takes you to the city center. Using the family´s bikes is a great way to explore the surrounding countryside or to get to work. To sum it up, it was a grand time and a good place to stay.
Thank you for making me feel like a real part of the family!
All the best,
It was a lovely experience. I remember Liz answer my message in a few minutes, she is very friendly and help me a lot. The experience living with Mick, Liz and their family was fantastic, I feel myself as a part of the family. If you are looking to know Dublin and the Irish culture its your place.
It was fabulous!! The best experience ever!
