    I couldn't recommend this accommodation enough! Betty is such a lovely and kind person, she went above and beyond to make us all feel comfortable and made sure we had everything we could possibly need. I will never forget her kindness and moral support as I was in the middle of moving houses and she helped me even with that. It truly felt like having a home from home during my whole stay!
    She knows the area and Ireland very well and will give you great tips; from the best nearby walks, swimming places, shopping, opticians to basically anything you are looking for:)
    And the house is just as lovely as her. Very charming, spacious, quiet and clean, with beautiful garden behind the house. My room was modern ensuit on top of the house (great sunset views!), very cosy and warm. I never slept so good!
    The area is very safe and quiet, with everything you need nearby. It's also a very good starting point for exploring this part of Ireland- Blackrock, Monkstown, Dún laoghaire, Dalkey, Bray...are all famous charming seaside towns and for more country hikes there's co. Wicklow, just a train away.
    Thank you again for everything Betty and please, give Nidge a big hug from me!

    Tia was a most welcome and lovely guest, always friendly and helpful and she settled in immediately. She is a very thoughtful and considerate guest and I wish her every good wish for her future ( as does Nidge!) and any Homestay host would be lucky to have her.

    Elizabeth was an amazing host! I felt home as soon as I arrived.
    The house is really lovely and my room was also really nice, with everything you could need.
    Elizabeth is very kind and helpful and I would recommend her 100%.

    Sadly, I had to leave earlier than expected due to the virus. I miss Ireland every day and I hope to be back and say hello to Elizabeth one day!
    PS: I also loved the cat, a forever-hungry fluffy ball!

    Ah, thank you, Marianne, for your kind words and likewise, you were such a lovely guest and so very helpful too. It was a pity your time was cut short but Covid 19 had us all in a bit of a spin!!. Hopefully, you will get back someday, you will always be welcome x

    I really enjoyed the 2 months with Elizabeth, because I could feel like home. The house is beautiful, Betty and her son are really nice and the atmosphere was great. So I can totally recommend this accommodation!

    I spent one week and a half with Elisabeth and her son Robert, and it was wonderful! It was my first time in Dublin and I was looking for a new home. They both were very welcoming and help me a lot indicating me the best places to live in Dublin. Elisabeth really cares about her hots and the house is lovely and it is located in a nice area. Thanks again for everything!
