The room is bright and cozy but floor creaking when you walk around which is very annoying since no matter how slowly you do your steps, the floor creaks ( considering we are small built individuals).
Place is also a bit far from City Center . If you have very early tours then you have to take a cab to be at the meeting place and it’s quite expensive. Stayed there for 3 nights and I thought that the amount we spent for transportation could have been added to the hotel accommodation in the city center ( walking distance to most sites).
My first time doing homestay in all my travels, I have to take a closer look and more research next time. Learned from this experience.
Bernadine and Brendan were lovely, very welcoming hosts. They helped with visitors information and were great company for a chat. Our room was clean and very very comfortable. We enjoyed popping in to the nearby pub. We were also able to buy some groceries from the Aldi just a short walk away. Everything nearby and Dublin a quick hop on the bus. Highly recommended.
Tony and I stayed with Bernadine for 5 nights . We wish to say it was great. Bernadine was very helpful host. Nothing was a problem she helped us with any questions we had. Any time we returned to the house after our days out there was always a offer of tea and coffee. Brendan was also helpful and of course Archie the dog was friendly a plus forTony. We have no problem in recommending Bernadine and her lovely home.
The house, located in a quiet suburb of Dublin, is about a 20 minute bus ride from the city center. The buses run very frequently so we did not use our vehicle. We stayed in the upstairs room with ensuite plumbing. The room was well appointed with a comfortable bed. Bernadine and Brendan are great and extremely helpful. There is a nice pub a short walk away that has very good food which is reasonably priced. We will stay here again
This guest awarded the host 3 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Lovely clean and spacious accommodation. Friendly welcome and lots of useful local information. Few minutes walk to frequent buses in to the city centre.
Bernadine was extremely hospitable and helpful! I would highly recommend staying with her. The location is great, we felt safe and welcome. The little pub down the street was lovely and welcoming as well.
Bernadine and her family could not have been more friendly and and helpful. If I get back to Ireland Bernadines home is where I would choose to stay in Dublin
Excelente habitación, estupenda comunicación y maravillosos anfitriones. Para repetir.
Bernadine and her family were excellent hosts. The house is large and well kept, clean and equipped. For breakfast there was everything available, toasts, jams, bread, coffee and tea. We had a wonderful room in the attic, very romantic. The bus stopped at 200 meters and in 15 minutes arrived in the city center. I suggest Bernadine and her family, including the sweet dog Archie
