    Joan and her family were really welcoming and helped me a lot. The house is very nice, it is located in a nice neighborhood, the Luas and the bus stop are very close and you can easily walk to them. Also, there are supermarkets and pharmacies nearby. The room I stayed in was spacious and very comfortable, I also had a fridge in the room. If I were to return to Dublin, I would definitely stay at Joan's house, they make you feel like you are part of the family. Thank you Joan, see you soon!

    It was a very beautiful experience in a very beautiful house. I advice to the people, who will read this message, to come here, because not only the house is very nice but also the family (very funny) and the neighborhood, the place has also a little park around that it is a very wonderful place for a walk. The neiborhood is close to a small centre like Stepside and then Dundrum and linked with centre of Dublin. Thank Joan, and her family. See you.
