We can only recommend Síle and John's place: the couple is very nice and John is the perfect host!!! The double room is wonderful. It has a very nice view to the garden and is extremely comfortable: the bed is really nice and there is plenty of space in the room: there is a desk and a lot of space in the closets. The house has a privileged location: it is located in a very nice neighborhood, very close to the sea (5 minutes walking). It is very well connected: it only takes about 15 minutes by bus to the city center and 20 minutes walking to East Point. There are supermarkets, pharmacies and other stores only 5 minutes away.
Sîle and John made a lovely memorable stay possible. They have profound knowledge about archeology, history and diverse other topics so you will leave as a little bit more encultured person. As I had to leave early, John would drive me to the busstation, which can not be taken for granted. The rooms are comfortable, clean and very soon John recognized my preferences in breakfast without sayin anything. Thank you a lot.
Thank you for a wonderful stay and being such warm hosts. A perfect place to stay with easy access to the city and the North Dublin Coast. Thank you both!
Great hosts. The room was nice, clean, quiet and comfortable. Excellent breakfast. Thank you so much for everything.
I felt very well. Very good breakfast, clean, comfortable bed and very nice hosts.
gladly again. Thank you.
Síle and John are very welcoming and friendly hosts. The room was comfortable and clean, the bathroom right next door. Lovely breakfast with fresh fruit. John and Síle gave me tips on where to go for a bite to eat and what areas of Dublin might interest me. This homestay is close to the sea, there's a lovely walk along the promenade approx. 5 minutes away from the house. Perfect place for me!
Han sido muy amables en todo momento y disponibles nos hemos sentido como en casa
Had a wonderful time with our stay with Síle and John. A beautiful home and great hosts. Would definitely recommend.
John and Sile are very nice host : room, bedroom (very confortable bed), breakfast (so good!!),... and you are at 15minutes to the Center by bus. It was a pleasure to stay in their home. See you !
Notre séjour chez Sile et John à été merveilleux. Accueil chaleureux, chambre confortable et quartier très tranquille et bien situé. John et Sila nous ont beaucoup aider pour nous conseiller sur nos déplacements et certains endroits à visiter. Plusieurs circuits d'autobus tout près, qui nous emmène directement au centre ville de Dublin. Nous y retournerions sans hésitations.
Merci encore pour ce bel accueil.
