    Ich würde auch noch ein sechstes Herz vergeben, wenn es ginge ... Die Unterkunft war sauber, gut gelegen und Lorraine und ihre Familie herzenswarm und hilfsbereit. Ich habe nichts vermisst und würde jederzeit gern wiederkommen. Danke!

    Loraine is such a thoughtful host, she really touched me. Her bungalow is well decorated, the room is comfortable, I've never seen such a soft bed, I had a very good night. She's very friendly, prepared some delicious meals for me, loves to chat, it's a shame my English was not very good, I would have liked to have had more conversation.

    The bathroom was also very comfortable, I felt at home there. We had a small fridge and could use the kitchen as we wished. The stay was perfect. I would like to thank her very much.

    I can't put into words how comfortable I have felt here. Lorraine has been exceptional from the very first moment and she has made me feel at home. I have no idea what the future holds, but I know I will always have a friend in Dublin. Thank you so much for being there for me, Lorraine <3

    Lorraine is a great host. She is friendly, always happy to help and she makes you feel at home.
    The house and very lovely and cosy. You can spend hours in the patio enjoying the sun.
    The area is very nice and safe at night. The house is close to public transport, which make it easy to move around the city.
    As a whole, the experience was great, I would recommend you staying here.

    It was a pleasure stay at Lorraine' home. She has been kind and happy to help me all the time. Moreover, the room was really comfortable and everything was clean, bathroom as well.
    I strongly recommend this place! The location is great, just 7 minutes from the airport and 25 minutes bus for the center of Dublin. Safe neighborhood also at night!

    Thank you Lorraine, hope to see you again:)

    Absolutely lovely stay. Lorraine was an excellent host with recommendations and casual chats when you're hanging around the house. Her home is extremely cozy as well, equipped with everything you'd need for your stay.

    I will remain eternally grateful to Lorraine for opening the door of her lovely house to me when it had been virtually impossible to find affordable and short-term accommodation in the Dublin area. My eight-day stay at hers was truly fantastic - from little thoughtful details that she prepared for my arrival (such as fresh cut flowers and fruits in my room), through to interesting chats with her and other two tenants over the shared meals and drinks, to the possibility of taking her lovable dog for a walk. What is also worth mentioning and praising is a very fine balance that I could have between privacy and a sense of commune. I honestly cannot imagine a better stay than I had at Lorraine's, and feel very lucky and privileged for having the chance to meet, interact, and live together with her and other residents in her happy home.
