Bernie is a lovely person, attentive and helpful. She was always helping me with everything I needed. She always have good advises and recommended places to share with you. Her house is very cozy, quiet and clean. I felt at home immediately. It's very close to Luas stop, medical centre, pharmacy and supermarkets, 5 minutes walk. The room is very confortable and well equipped, as well as the bathroom. I recommend highly staying with Bernie, because you will get two new friends besides a great stay.
Bernie is a great host. She does everything she can to help people who stay here. She is really friendly and likes to share the Irish way of living.
I stayed with Bernie for almost 2 weeks and I genuinely felt at home. I was always greeted with a big smile and a welcome everytime I came in the house (from both Bernie and her dog Flossie!!!). Bernie went above and beyond to help me out after a personal mishap I had while staying with her. Thanks for everything Bernie - I'll be over for tea in the New Year!!!
*For Guests* - The house is very clean, tidy, modern and quiet. Less than a 5 minute walk to the Luas, supermarket and shopping centre. The bedroom was very quiet and comfortable so you will have no problem having a relaxing nights sleep. There is a separate bathroom (with shower, bath and toilet) for guests along with towels. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. It's like staying in my own home!
This was my first time in Ireland and Bernadette was an absolutely amazing host, kind, helpful and her dog is absolutely adorable! I had a wonderful time and would recommend staying with her any day!
Bernie is a very friendly and supportive host. I felt at home straight away. She took good care of me and did everything to make me feel comfortable in her home. Her dog Flossy is adorable, too and it was great having her around. I also very much liked my room, it was well equipped and very quite so I always got a good sleep. I can highly recommend staying with Bernie, you're going to have a very enjoyable time!
Although Irish people are known for their kindness and hospitality, staying with Bernadette will show you this at its best. You won't get only cosy stay but also two friends you can rely on at any moment.
