Through homestay, I was able to meet this family and enjoy wonderful moments with them. I was very well received by Sandra, Johnny and the whole family. Really, I had a lot of fun with them and was very happy. I would definitely like to come back more often. Thank you, Sandra, Johnny and family for the welcome.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Staying with Sandra and Johnny was a delightful and funny time. After a certain time I felt like becoming part of the family. This was a great experience for the first time abroad.
Everybody is communicative, sociable, and helpful, and they can give you great tips for traveling and sightseeing.
You don't even have to wait in the rain, for the bus stop is literally at the garden wall.
Thank you for everything, I couldn't find a better host family for my first time in Ireland.
