Rush is a lovely seaside town with lots to do for anyone who loves the outdoors. If you have any special requests/requirements please let us know.

    Short version :
    Definitely a very friendly family (they are always smiling !) and a great place to stay, either for work or for holidays.

    Long version :
    Patricia, Derek and their children were very welcoming and I really felt like home ! They have made everything they could so that I could feel comfortable and I really appreciated it. They have a huge and very well equiped kitchen and the room is very large as well (it's perfect for a couple). They also have a friendly and funny dog.

    I was there for a month for an internship and Rush was the perfect place to relax after a day in the city. The house is very well located, only 5mn walking from an access to the beach and 2mn from the Rogerstown estuary, where you can go for a walk and observe plenty of birds. It is very still.

    An express bus joins the city centre on weekdays in about 40mns. Else the house is a 20mn walk (or 5mn drive) from the train station. There is a lot to do and see from there as regular trains can drive you to Dublin city centre, Malahide castle, the Howth peninsula, or Drogheda and the Boyne valley. There is also a regular direct bus for the airport.

    Patricia et sa famille sont des hôtes adorables, prêts à rendre service si besoin et de bon conseil notamment pour les transports . La chambre est très agréable, avec un grand lit très confortable et une salle de bains privative! la maison est fonctionnelle avec la possibilité de se faire la cuisine et même des lessives.
    La ville de Rush est calme en bord de mer avec des commerces et des restaurants . L'arrêt de bus pour aller à Dublin se trouve à 5mn à pieds (compter ensuite entre 45mn et 1h selon les bus).
    L'endroit est idéal si on ne veut pas se loger dans Dublin et être dans un endroit plus calme!

    Patricia and her family were very welcoming, we felt home as soon as we arrived.
    The bedroom was also great, large, very comfy. Having our own bathroom was really enjoyable.
    Finally, the house is very well located, near the beach, bus, train and shops.
    We can only recommend this place !

    We really enjoyed our stay at Patricias home and felt very welcome by her and her family.
    They are a really nice family, they spent time to answer our questions and to telll us more about Ireland. The rooms were big and clean, the beds very comfortable. We also enjoyed having breakfast in their garden.
    The house is very close to the seaside, were we spent a lot of time. Easy Access to the motorway and other sights at the eastcoast.

    Patricia & Derek and their 2 boys was such a nice and welcoming family ,they made me feel at home . The house is very close to a bus stop ( 7 minutes walk ) ,the bus no. (33) comes around every 30 minutes ,which brings you to Swords Village ,and straight to Dublin City centre .Their boys are brilliant singers and so friendly too . I booked the Ensuite room ,:I felt so comfortable .It's so clean and cosy .Towels provided also ,so It's like a hotel service.I would highly recommend this host family to anyone looking for a safe, homely and quiet place to stay .
