I had a very happy time during the homestay at Mary's house. Although that was my first time living in Dublin, I was completely relaxed because Mary and her family helped me. Mary explained the way around house while driving and drew maps for me. They constantly checked whether the room are adequate for relaxation. They also gave a lot of advice about Irish culture, travel, and so on. I really appreciate Mary and her family and I'd like to recommend this house to those who are going to stay in Dublin!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
very very friendly family, just hop on the bus and you are in the centre of Dublin
I couldn´t have chosen a better accomodation option. Mary´s house is in a quiet area, perfectly connected to the city centre. The room is cozy, the bed comfortable, everything is spotless and the breakfast incuded is more than plentiful. But the best of my stay was, undoubtedly, that Mary and Richard made me feel completely at home during my stay, I am very grateful for the time I spent with them, their company made a huge difference to my days in Dublin. I can´t recommend Mary´s place highly enough. Thank you!
In one word: Amazing! My first ever stay with home stay and Mary and her family are the best hosts one could wish for. It definitely made my holiday one to keep in my memory and I simply loved it. Thank you again Mary and hope to see you sometime again!
Thanks for the hospitality and for your patience with my english!
Lovely place to stay!
God bless Ireland and your family.

A fantastic weekend in Dublin made so much better by the fact that I stayed with a lovely family in their beautiful home in a great location.I felt privileged to be allowed to stay there.My room was spotlessly clean and comfortable.The city centre was easily accessible by bus.
I really enjoyed living with Mary and her family. They are a very nice and helpful family where you immediately feel comfortable. The house is very clean and well connected to public transport. Thanks for the nice time.
