Deidre is very kind woman who made me stay very safe and pleasant. She was very welcoming and made me feel at home. She was very caring towards me and is a great host. Thank you so much!!
Deirdre was so accomodating and friendly. Very helpful, I had such a lovely time here.
Deirdre is a great host that made me feel at home. I enjoyed to be a guest in her nice, warm and clean home. The best accommodation I could have ever found, buses behind the corner and Dart a few minutes walking. Grazie mille Deirdre!
Der Aufenthalt bei Deirdre war sehr angenehm. Ich verbrachte 3 Monate in ihren kleinen aber sehr gemütlichen Haus. Deirdre ist eine tolle Gastgeberin und stets hilfsbereit. Außerdem ist sie eine sehr gute und abwechslungsreiche Köchin. Das Haus liegt mit dem Bus ca. 25 Minuten (je nach Verkehr bis zu 50 min) von Dublin City entfernt. Ich kann einen Aufenthalt bei Deirdre nur empfehlen.
I have just spent 5 nights staying at Deirdre’s lovely home. Deirdre is a lovely person being very welcoming and great fun to chat to. I would love to stay here again.
I really enjoyed my stay at Dee's place. She is such a kind person who cares for everyone and you could talk to for hours. Breakfast was provided every morning adapted to my preferences. You can easily get to the nice city of Dun Laoghaire by foot/ bus and to Dublin with the Dart- the Dart station is nearby. If you are looking for somewhere nice to stay near Dublin city, I would always recommend to stay at her place. Thank you again for everything.
I had a really lovely stay and it was a pleasure to meet and spend time with Deirdre. She is a gorgeous person!
The room was nice, clean and cozy and the bathroom was vey useful.
Deirdre provided a delicious breakfast and considered my wishes.
The Dart-Station and bus stops are all nearby and in about 20 minutes you're in the city.
Dun Laoghaire is worth seeing and only about 25 minutes of walking or 15 minutes by bus away.
I really can recommend staying by Deirdre!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Thank you for this lovely homestay last October. I like to think back to that time.
Deirdre was a very lovely and welcome person. The room was clean and the place was near to a DART station. 15 minutes later and you´re in dublin city. The stay was perfect. :)
