Very warm and hospitable family. Barbara and Charlie were always extremely helpful when I had any questions and were such lovely hosts! Would highly recommend them!
Helpful kind family, They are good people And I had good time with them, I felt like I’m in my home
Barara and Charlie are lovely people.
I and my husband spent a 3 month period with them and we had a great time with their family.
Their house is spacious and the family did all best to make us feel at home.
Despite being a sharing place, we could find the freedom needed to live in our way.
The family was always open to help when we needed and gave tips and advice for our daily life in Dublin. The localization of the house is pretty much good. Easy walking distance access to various bus lines and Dart. There is a small mall close to the house and supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants around as well.
Stay with that family was an important and unforgetble experience in our relocating to Ireland.
I strongly recommend their house for further interested guests. Thank you again guys for everything!
My son Daniel had an amazing time with Barbara and Charlie. He was very pleased with all the attention received. The couple gave me a piece of mind as a parent. Dan said he was just like part of the family. I will visit them next time I go to Ireland. I HIGHLY and honestly recommend this couple.
All fantastic, the place, the house and the family.
Barbara and Charlie were wonderful hosts, always helpful and kind. There are a lot of greenery in the area and the neighborhood is very peaceful. Nearby there are shops and a few minutes on foot Lidl and Tesco. About 10-12 min is to the nearest DART station. I would most definitely recommend a stay with Barbara and Charlie!
I loved my stay with Barbara and Charlie. Firstly the location was great and very convenient. The buses are very frequent in and out of town and shops are located close by. St Anne's Park is only a mile away with Dollymount Strand also within walking distance. The house is lovely and cosy. Most importantly Barbara and Charlie were so welcoming, accommodating and helpful. I would most definitely recommend a stay with Barbara and Charlie & hope to stay with them again in the future.
Barbara and Charlie are more than great hosts. We came to Ireland two months ago and they were more than welcoming from the moment we entered the house. They were attentive, friendly and helpful with advice on getting around which was especially useful when we were looking for a job and finding best places to shop at. There is a beautiful park in front, neighborhood is peaceful, house is vast, the room was beautiful and cosy. We highly recommend this host to any guest! Iva and George
Probably more suitable for students/ if you are out early till very late, we found it to be 2 or 2-1/2 stars -
one twin room bed was up against the radiator, not ideal when the heat is on, no hot water unless the central heating is on, cold tap in the downstairs loo not working, shower a bit of a dibble. This room isn't great if you are a light sleeper - as the stairs & floors creak & you can hear the tv in the family living room TV (probably not a problem upstairs) plus the front door gets banged a lot early in the morning.
The kitchen was great & I appreciated being able to use it a little bit, but it was a bit awkward going in as you have to go through the family's living room while the tv is on. Barbara warmed up a bit at the end. I would try homestay elsewhere but more likely to try B&B options.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
