What was it like living with John and Linda and the Gang
The two of us moved to Ireland on a visa for two years and we wanted to find a place to stay for the first month and a bit where we could get settled into while we were looking for a job and permanent place to stay. We chose John and Lindas because it was close to the city centre and right beside a shopping centre. Its about a 20 min bus into downtown Dublin with two very close bus stops that can get you there, which run all the time. On our first day, John took us around and showed us exactly where to get on and off the bus and what to tell the bus driver. This was very helpful because, as you can imagine, there was so much change going on in our life at the time it was great to have someone take the time to show us around. They are also right beside the North Side shopping centre, which has everything you need from a pack of Guinness to electronics, groceries, clothing and food options. It was a great resource to be so close too.
It is a home away from home that you will feel like you fit into within days. Linda was always keeping me up to date on the neighbourhood gossip. We would enjoy our coffee and tea with a great chat most mornings. If ever I had a question about Ireland or getting around she was there to offer help. Everyone in the family is so helpful it is truly a great first experience for someone visiting or moving to Ireland!
By week two and three we were family, whether it was joking around while making dinner or having a few pints after a long week on a Friday. Or singing and dancing to music after a long day of work. It really helped us to avoid the homesickness because it had felt like we had just found our Irish family.
Anyone who is looking for a safe place to call home during your visit should reach out to john and Linda. Every day was a great day there!
Linda and John are very kind. It was a space so warm and happy. I wanted to be moved to stay here.Thank you, Linda John!♥️
It was an incredible time in this lovely place. Tons of thanks to Linda, Orla and John for everything. I totally recommended to stay there and hope to come back. My best wishes. David
Very nice stay at Linda and John hosse
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
The time spent at Lindas' was apsolutelly amazing. They were really friendly and full of advice and they went above and beyond with all of their help. We had everything we needed to life properly while spending our time there. We had no issues whatsoever. You can spend your day as you usually would. You would not be bothered at all. Really feels like home.
Best family ever. 100% recommended ❤️
Thank you so much for having me in your home. My stay was just a week but I felt like my another home. John and Linda are laid-back and fun people. The room was very cozy. I'd like to stay with them again.
This was my first time away from home for my higher education, but I did not feel it even a wee bit due to the generous hospitality and warmth shown by Linda, John, and their lovely family. It is undoubtedly the home away from home. From picking me up at the airport early morning to our long chats and laughter whenever we met... My experience with Linda and John has been wonderful! The room was very cozy and all facilities had been arranged very meticulously. I truly look forward to staying with Linda and John again in the near future!
