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.
Lovely stay with Mary and family. Thanks for the hospitality and generosity and the lift!
Mary is an excellent hostess and helpful in every way. Such a friendly, welcoming family and a lovely place to stay!
This warm-hearted family was the best family I've ever seen in Dublin :D It was lovely time in every single day, and especailly Mary was so kind and careful about living condition of mine. At last day, they dropped me off to my another accommodation! I literally appreciate for those lovely days with them. thank you!
I had an absolutely wonderful stay in Mary's beautiful home. I received such a warm welcome from Mary, her husband and her family and they made me feel really comfortable and right at home!
Mary went over and above the call of duty for me and I cannot speak highly enough of her - she is a fantastic host.
The room I stayed in was extremely cosy and it was the perfect base after a busy day.
Mary's home is located in a lovely, quiet, residential part of Dublin.
I would thoroughly recommend a HomeStay with Mary.
Mary and her family are lovely people. Warm, friendly and willing to help. Her house is nice and the room is small but bright, well equipped and very comfortable for one person. The location is beautiful, quiet, has easy access to public transport and is just 10 min walk to the Botanic Garden. It was a pleasure to stay with them and I hope to repeat the experience again in the future.
It's my pleasure to live with Mary and her family during these 13 days. They helped me to get used to the new environment and gave me a lot of helpful suggestions. During my days there, I tasted the local Irish food, watched Irish TV programs and experienced the Irish lifestyle. I really enjoyed them. If I have the chance, I want to live with Mary and her family again!
I had a wonderful stay with Mary And it was so nice to meet her family too. They were all so kind , considerate and welcoming.The area where they live is lovely and close to the Botanic Gardens which I loved visiting while I was there. All in all it was a wonderful experience.
