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!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Elizabeth is a lovely person. She helped me with everything and I felt there like in my house.
I'm back home. I'd like to thank you very much for having me! It's been a wonderful whole month in your home!
Betty is an amazing host!!! Always helpful and available with a great sense of humour.
I definitely recommend Betty's homestay to anyone who wishes to spend time in Dublin!
The best of luck and hope to see you again one day!
J'ai passé un super moment chez Elisabeth ! Je la recommande à 100%. Elle prend le temps de parler avec nous, elle a toujours de bons conseils d'endroits à visiter, de pub ou autres ! Je me suis sentiment directement à l'aise dans sa maison. Thank you very much Elisabeth !
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!
A great stay with really lovely people. Betty is a wonderful host. She makes you feel like one of the family and really cares about her hosts. The house is beautiful and welcoming in a very peaceful and safe neighbourhood. Plenty of transports near the estate and a 15 minutes walk from the train station in Monkstown. Worth 10 hearts.
Betty is very friendly, I stayed with her during 3 months and all was perfect. Thanks again for your warm welcome.
She is an amazing host and I loved my stay with her!! She taught me every small things about living in dublin and always made sure I am comfortable and happy! It was a great time!
It has been an absolute pleasure staying with Betty and Robert for the month. They both made me feel so welcome and relaxed. Betty is brilliant at letting you know all the local information. Blackrock is in a prime location with a quick Dart trip to central Dublin to see the sights and a short drive from Dorky and Killiney hill for a hike, with many bus routes accessible. This is by no means my last visit I will be back to see Betty again!
