What can I say! Gabrielle, Kevin, and their family are the most lovely, caring and beautiful people ever. They made me feel at home during my whole stay, in a cosy, quiet, friendly and familiar house. Exactly what I needed for my research stay. The whole family were eager to help and have a chat whenever you needed it. Gave me many useful tips for moving around the city and the country, and after-dinner chats were so relaxing, after a day of hard work.
Gabrielle's meals were outstanding, she's such a chef! A lot of international food, with incredible weekend traditional Irish breakfasts. The room was very convenient, warm, very clean and confortable. The house is located in a quiet residential suburb, full of green zones and with a close large supermarket. It is very well connected with Dublin city center via LUAS (35 min. rides aprox.).
I miss you a lot, and can't wait to come back next year and have a Guinness with you all! (if COVID-19 allows me to do it!). XOXOXOXO
Gabrielle et Kevin sont des hôtes très accueillants et attentionnés; nous nous sommes tout de suite sentis en famille en leur compagnie. Leur maison est très bien entretenue, chaleureuse et très bien équipée. La chambre familiale est très sympa ... comme celle de mon enfance ! Gabrielle nous a préparés de délicieux petits déjeuners et dîners maison. L'accès au centre ville de Dublin est très rapide par le Luas en 25 minutes. Si j'avais pu mettre 6 étoile, je l'aurais fait avec plaisir ;-)
Perfect and amazing. I stayed in their house for one month. They were really kind, friendly and helpful...They gave me lots of advice when I needed help. I was really happy I could meet them.
She is the warmer and attentive host I've known. The rooms were super clean and cute, plus the dishes that prepared us were delicious. Thanks a lot Gaby for everything, we have spent wonderful days in your home!
The stay at Gabrielle's house was simply EXCELLENT ;). Very clean, warm and well decorated house, restaurant quality dinners and generous portions. Tidy clean room and immaculate toilets. What is more, her house is located in a very quiet and safe area, also only a 5 min walk to the Luas. The family is really kind, respectful and hospitable, making me feel at home at every moment. Definitely stay again. Gabrielle is a SUPER host!!!!!
grabiella y kevin encantadores ,alegres y risueños,aunque este a 8km de dublin el luas (tren) esta a 5 minutos a pie y llega en menos 30 minutos abby street (centro).
Esta en un lugar bello y tranquilo fuera del ajetreo de la ciudad. Volveria otras vez sin duda.
It was an amazing time that I spent with Gabby, Kevin and their family.
I felt welcome directly after my arrival. They help you with any problems or questions you have.
Most often you find Gabby in the kitchen preparing a gorgeous breakfast, sandwiches and dinner.
When Kevin isn’t at work he loves to invite you on a drink while chatting or watching television.
The house is clean and tidy and Gabby washes your clothes nearly every day.
It is located 3min from the Luas Stop Kingswood and it takes ~30min to the city centre.
I highly recommend this family if you want to visit Ireland!!
I hope to see you again :)
Gabrielle and Kevin are two of the most friendly and sincere people I have met here in Dublin. The overall atmosphere they provide is welcoming and a home away from home. I could not have been more lucky to have stayed with them my first week; from the home cooked meals to the warmhearted company, either from Gabrielle and Kevin to the other tenets staying there, I look forward to coming back soon.
My stay with Kevin & Gabby was absolutely amazing, they are very welcoming, helpful, friendly & kind. Gabby's food is very delicious, I enjoyed the breakfast, launch, and dinner which she makes every day. Especially the lovely Irish breakfast which she makes on Saturday. Kevin is a lovely person to talk to, he is very interesting and you can talk to him about anything, and you can ask him for advice about where to go in Dublin and watch movies with. The house and room are very clean. The house is only 2 minutes away from the tram, which is 25 minutes to the City Centre and 10 minutes to Tallaght hospital (for those who are doing an internship in Tallaght hospital, its a very good place to stay in).
The neighborhood is very peaceful and beautiful.
At first, you will feel at home but in the end, it will be your home.
It was great meeting you and I hope to see you again in the future!
Thank you Gabby & Kevin
Gabrielle and Kevin are great people, very welcoming and kind. You’ll have an amazing stay with them just like we did. Gabrielle makes the best coffee in Dublin and Kevin is very interesting and funny. It’s very easy to go from their house to the city centre and the airport. We look forward to going back there and meet with them again.
