I personally do not appreciate boring hotels which are always just the same. So, for me this stay with friendly family of four children was great. And despite the young kids room in top floor provided peaseful place for resting.
Diane is fabulous !! I was looking for an accommodation in Tallaght and I found Diane on Homestaybooking. I sent her a booking request and she answered that she had no more room available, but instead of simply rejecting my request, she helped me to find an other host family. She finally asked her neighbours if they would take me, and luckily for me, they accepted. This was one of the best experiences of my whole life: The neighbour's family was fabulous and the house extraordinary !! In a few weeks I learned a lot about the Irish culture and the other students who were staying with me became very good friends. As I said, I was not staying at Diane's home but she invited me two times (since I was living next-door) and I got to meet her lovely family. Her husband as well as her two twin daughters are very nice and welcoming. I also had the opportunity to meet Diane's students who were great as well. In short, although I wasn't staying at Diane's place, I can assure you that Diane is one of the most lovely person in Ireland !! You future guests will be happy at Diane's home !!
