    Hi Ger, your house was very comfortable and calm. So when I stay there, I was able to get enough rest. In addition, Thank you for helping me adjust to Irish life. :)

    This was my best experience when renting a room. Ger is really kind and friendly, I felt really comfortable since I entered the house. The bedroom and house location is also fantastic. Do not hesitate to choose her!

    Herzlich nette Gastgeberin. Hilfsbereit und freundlich. Für den gelungenen Start hatte sie sogar leihweise einen Stromadapter und eine Leap-Card für mich. Mein Zimmer war für mich als Alleinreisender groß genug und sauber. Das Bett war ok. Das Bad mit Runddusche brandneu...besser als in manchen 4* Hotels! Habe mich sehr wohlgefühlt...trotzdem auf der Homestay-Seite nur ein kleines Frühstück angeboten wurde, gab es nicht nur Marmelade + Toast, sonder auch mal Eier oder das warme Irische Frühstück. Ger ist zuverlässig. Sie hatte jeden Morgen pünktlich bereits den Kaffee fertig und leistete mir sogar am Tisch Gesellschaft und unterhielt sich mit mir(gut für mein eingerostetes Irisch). Im Garten konnte man Rauchen. Der Vorort Clontarf ist am Wasser...man kann sehr schön Spazieren, Joggen und Radfahren an der frischen Luft. Bushaltestellen sind in 2 Minuten zu erreichen...ca alle 10 Min kam er...bis in die Stadtmitte(CityCenter)sind es nur ca 10 Min Fahrzeit. Auch gut...gleich um die Ecke ist ein kleiner Supermarkt, Pizzaria, Fish&Ships u.a. Imbiss to go und Friseure. Meine Erwartungen wurden übertroffen. Sehr empfehlenswert! Ich komme gerne wieder....Peter aus Deutschland/Höxter

    The house was amazing, extremely convenient location. Our host Geraldine was there for our every need. She has provided us with information about buses and trains in Dublin, tourist attractions and so much more. She took us on a tour of Dublin, besides the fact that she was busy, she has helped with everything from giving a small heater to dropping us in city centre without any hesitation. I have never been treated better.
    P.S. - Dublin is amazing!

    Staying with Ger was an absolute treat. She has loads of advice on what to see while you are in Clontarf, but also some great tips for when you are in Dublin city as well. Her house is a two minute walk from the bay, which is a beautiful place to go for a jog or catch the sunset.
    The first thing Ger did for me when I arrived was made me a cup of tea and then took me for a tour of Clontarf in her car, which helped me orient myself quickly. She was always willing to help me during my stay- without her, my first trip to Ireland wouldn't have been as easy as it was. I can't wait to visit again.
    A million thanks, Ger!

    Love always,
    Amanda
