Ann is very friendly and helpful with everything! I had great chats with her and enjoyed the stay in her house. I always felt welcome in her house and there is a very positive atmosphere so that you‘ll always enjoy being in her house. I felt like home immediately!
She has a daughter who is very friendly as well and there two cute dogs.
Bella casa ordinata, pulita a pochi passi dalla fermata del treno che ti porta dritto nel cuore della città. La proprietaria Aine é gentilissima socievole e non invadente. Consigliatissimo. Ci tornerò sicuramente
The room is very comfortable it sleeps very well is a very quiet area no noise is very well located downtown and the airport
She is a very special person and very nice even her dogs I am very nice we would go back to repeat
We had a really warm, relaxed welcome from Aine who gave us many helpful tips. Cosy, comfy room and bed. Public transport links to the city proved easy from Aines home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much Aine.

My very first experience with Homestay and my very first days in Ireland were both absolutely brilliant due to the heartful kind of friendship I enjoyed as Aine's guest in Dublin. A very open-minded and caring person herself, she helped me the best to find an access to Ireland. Strictly recommended - thank you very much, dear Aine!
Anne was a very nice hostess, all the time she made us feel at home, the room was very comfortable and every week we had clean sheets. We would definitely stay at their home again.
Aine was the best host ever!She received us in her home even tho it was late at night, the room was wonderful ( great matress) and the breakfast just perfect. I think a big reason of why we enjoyed so much of Dublin in such a short time is because of Aine, she made us feel like home from the first moment, the house is so cozy , she is really funny and has lots of stories to tell, she even made a traditional irish cacerolle for us, the best!! Thanks for everything Aine, you are more than invited to come to Nice anytime. Have a wonderful life :) Belén and Deborah.
What can I say about Aine and my experience from my staying? Zero complaints. Amazing hostess,lovely , pleasant personality. She helped me very much with information about living in Ireland.
I enjoyed every minute of my staying there! Her house is extra clean, comfortable and just outside the Dart station, which takes about 10' to the city centre!
Also plenty bus routes coming by .
Every day she would welcome us with breakfast of her own and Mila her lovely dog makes you feel more comfortable,like home!
I hope to have the chance to stay again Aine !
Till then take care
It was a lovely time in Aine's house! Mattress are very comfortable, I've never slept better. I was happy also that could fullfil my bottle with filtered water and have a choice food!
Ann made our 4 days in Dublin to a great and enjoyable stay. The DART-station to city and coast is just a short walk. The two-bed room was perfect for us and the house is pleasant clean.
Thank you so much for sharing your time with us. I enjoyed the long conversations especially the one from mother to mother! Many thanks for the relaxing holidays you made possible for us.
Give a big hug to Rosa and Mela. Would like to send you a star-shower of hearts!
