Teresa is a lovely, open hearted host mom. Her home is close to a park, bus and luas stop, groceries shop and a good pub. I enjoyed being part of her familiy for three weeks.
My experinece: you can do your own things and Teresa will support you in any possible way. If you need help or a little advice, don´t hesitate to ask her.
I really recommend Teresas familiy!
@ Teresa: thank you for the great time, i will always remember!
lovely greetings from Germany :)
I totally enjoyed my stay with Teresa and her family! They are all really lovely and helped me to feel comfortable during my internship. The cooking skills from Teresa are great and the house has got everything you wish to have. Also Walkinstown is a very nice place. There is a park directly behind the house, so you can do your sports every day. And in the case you miss something in the fridge (normally that won't happen :)) there are a few Shops where you get everything. The connection to the City centre is also very good! There are two bus stations and the LUAS which brings you quickly and easy to the centre. The bus you reach in 5 minutes, the LUAS in about 10 minutes. So, Teresa, her Family and the area in and around Walkinstown are the perfect requirements for a lovely, interesting and unforgettable stay in Ireland.
Teresa is a lovely host and a great cook. The house has got everything you would need during your stay and it is well connected to the city centre. Walkinstown is good area and easy to reach by bus and the LUAS is so close to the house, just a ten minute walk away and great for going to the city, I recommend staying here.
I had a great stay with Teresa, Dave and Joy. They are a very friendly family and extremely welcoming. The house is in a convenient location close to the Luas line and bus services into the city. Teresa keeps her house spotless. It has lovely decor and is very comfortable to live in. She has no problem with you watching TV at your leisure. Her food is lovely and she always provides a great variety of meals. I would highly recommend staying with this family.
