    I stayed with Mark and Emily for 4 months during my internship in Ireland and it was great ! All the family was very welcoming and the accomodation was perfect for me. The DART station is five minutes away which is very practical for going to the city center. Mark and Emily were very helpful when i needed advice all throughout the stay . The food too was very good.
    Thank you Mark and Emily for this stay, I really recommend it!

    I had a wonderful stay with Mark, Emily, their kids and their dog. They cared for me very well and helped me with all my problems. A perfect and quiet place to stay with easy access to the city centre. Emily is a very good cook (yummy by the way). The room is very comfortable. Thank you for being such great hosts and for all your help. Highly recommended.

    My staying with the Ryan's couldn't be more satisfactory and fullfilling. I was there just for a week, but I've felt comfortable from the very first moment I've met them. The room is warm and cozy, as the rest of their house is. They helped me a lot with very useful advice about Dublin, and made me feel as though I were in my own home. And don't miss the dinners! Emily is an excellent cook ;-)

    I have to mention also the really convenient and fast connection with Dublin via DART, the train station is really close to their house and you can get to the centre in minutes.

    Thank you Emily & Mark, for contributing to a superb experience in Dublin.

    Excellent reception, worried about my well-being and making me feel good, even though my English was not the best, they always looked for ways to communicate and I am very grateful. I totally recommend them.

    I spent one month in this very confortable and beautiful house. Mark, Emely and the children are very welcoming, I had a great time talking with them during dinner. And talking about dinner, the food was amazing! The bedroom has everything you need with a confortable bed, a lot of storage space, a desk and fast Wifi. The house is very close to a bus stop and a train stop, so you can get to the city center in less than 15 minutes.

    I recently stayed with Mark and Emily for 4 weeks while interning in the Dublin area.
    Mark and Emily are wonderful hosts. The standard of accommodation and hospitality provided during my stay were excellent. Mark and Emily were very helpful throughout the stay and were always there to advise and share their local knowledge whenever I had questions in relation to public transport, sightseeing or whatever. I can highly recommend them.

    I recommend you 100% a stay in this wonderful family!
    Indeed, it was a lovely stay with Mark, Emily and the kids. They all very kind, willing to help, giving some tips about Dublin and Ireland. I did enjoy the dinners lovingly-cooked by Emily, do not miss them! I’ve found in that family what I looked for: contact with Irish culture, a better understanding of Ireland and its people and also learning English!
    The neighbourhood is also very pleasant and quiet, and the DART Station is at about 5 minutes walking as close as the bus stops, which is very convenient to reach the city centre.
    The room is also well-equipped: closet, bedside table, electrical outlets and a little desk to work.

    I would also like to thank you, for your warm welcome, your trust and your friendship throughout this stay. With you, I can say that Irish hospitality is very real!
    I hope also that I might be able to come back in Dublin as soon as possible. Actually I can’t wait!

    A thousand thanks again for everything you’ve done for me, I’ll never forget you.
    Take care.

    I'm 18, and coming from Belgium, I stayed with the family for a month. They are very welcoming and friendly! I had an amazing time with them, Emily is a really good cook and the children are very nice. The room is comfy and very clean! The house is also well situated, 5min walk from the dart station. Thanks again for the lovely stay!!
