It was fabulous! I can't describe it in a few lines because there is so much good to say, only good things.
First of all the location of the house is really good, 5 min walk from a bus stop where bus number 16 takes you in 30 min from the centre from 6 am to 00 am non stop.
The house is very very pleasant and very well maintained, as well as the bedrooms and the bathroom, really nothing to say we feel like at home, the neighbourhood is very quiet and safe.
Secondly, Phillip and Sandra are wonderful people and really make a difference because they are lively, fun, entertaining, exciting. You will be able to have varied and interesting conversations and forget that you are just a guest because they are so welcoming. You will feel at home in a bath of kindness and good moods. You will be able to share long warm moments around Phillip and Sandra's wonderful meals and some beers ;)
To summarise, I had a really great time during my stay sharing many moments with them or their families who were also very welcoming and wonderful.
Go for it, you won't be disappointed!! Trust me
Philip and Sandra are such great hosts. From the beginning they make you feel at home, and their house is so lovely and very cozy. They were always very helpful any time I needed anything and made everything possible for me to feel at home. I had to work from home due to the COVID pandemic and they aranged everything for me to have a personal working space, which was a very nice gesture.
I really enjoyed my stay and my conversations with them and will really miss them. I definitely recommend them as homestay hosts!
It felt like home! Lovely family, house, and neighborhood. Connections with bus routes 16 (downtown and airport) and 175 (University College Dublin). Sandra took good care of me.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
