Gary and Joe are incredibly amazing! Before my stay I was a bit nervous about my first stay with homestay in general. At that point, I didn´t know which great experience was waiting for me.
When I arrived they provided me with all information needed to find the bus stops, shops and whatever I wanted to know. As it has been mentioned before, the house is close to everything you need: shops, pharmacy, bus stop etc. It just takes approx. 20-30 minutes by bus to Dublin city centre, which is absolutely convenient.
My room was wonderful <3. I also loved the big kitchen because I like cooking and baking a lot :) The living room with the TV is perfect to relax whenever you need it. Especially, I liked the fact that I got to know different people becasue of changing house mates during my long-term stay. I could stay for myself or look for company, which was amazing.
I stayed 6 months with Gary and Joe, and it became like home. I enjoyed staying with them, and having great chats. :) Whenever I´ll be back in Dublin, I´d love to stay with them again.
Thank you for everything you did for me! I miss you, and having Billy around!
To whom that may consider a stay with Joe and Gary:
I always try to find a small nice property instead of big international chains in every trip I do and after staying in many hotels of this kind I am 100% sure that Joe and Gary was my best ever choice. Honestly!
The location is very close to amenities for your daily needs, pharmacy, mall, takeaway and many more. The property is in perfect condition with a back-garden and many chairs and a big table. In the living room you have plenty of space if you wanted to take the opportunity to have some sofa and TV-time.
Rooms are spotlessly clean and large enough to feel yourself comfortable even for a long stay!
Joe and Gary are very, very nice people with a very gentle character of hospitality, open for a chat but only if you want to, they would not press a conversation on you, exactly how I like it. Both are up for some banter, too. Very pleasant, and very helpful, too.
On top of all aforementioned, Joe and Gary don't hesitate to provide you with a good amount of supply of toast, tea, coffee, towels, and bed sheets. They go beyond the extra-mile to make us guests feel welcome, and in doing so I really, really enjoyed my stay. You have enough privacy as well, which I appreciate a lot. You can wash your clothes, you get free Wi-Fi . . . what do you want more?
I have no hesitation in recommending Joe and Gary to everyone. Thank you so much to the both of you! It's been my pleasure getting to know you and have staying at your lovely house.
Sadly, the third house-owner and special joy-bundle of the house, Billy, has passed away and will always be in my heart, too. He's been such a nice, pleasant fella with his funny characteristics. He even made friends with my two-years old son Skylar . . . best ever memories.
Staying with Gary and Joe was no doubt the highlight of my first few months in Ireland. From the moment I walked in the door I felt welcome and at home. Gary and Joe are some of the warmest, kindest, most genuine people I have ever met and they would do anything to make sure their guests feel comfortable. Thank you so much for helping me get settled and for being such incredible hosts and more importantly friends.
Gary and Joe are the most sweet guys I've ever met. That was my first experience in a Irish house and I must say that was fantastic. They made me feel very welcome.
The room is nice, the bed very comfortable. Their dog Billy is so cute.
Gary and Joe are awsome! When i first came there, they gave me a lovely welcome and Joe showed me everything. Also where I can get the bus or food or where my work is. They helped me when ever and where ever they can and they have a great kind of Humor. I enjoyed staying with them.
The House is really clean and it has everything you need. There is also a small cute dog in the house. There is a good bus connecction to the city center (you need about 29 minutes with the bus) and in 5 min walking distance you can buy food or whatever you need.
I really can recommend this house and the hosts. It was a pleasure to stay there.
Thank you Gary and Joe for everything!
Joe and Gary are amazing host! From mt first day to my last day i was like at home. They are very friendly et very fun ! The house is always very clean and very beautiful, they have a lovely dog
I hope see them again !
I stayed at the house from Joe and Garry for 3 month and it was really nice there.
The house was clean and tidy and the rooms are all really lovely.
At the begining Joe and Gary helped me a lot if I just have a question and also showed me where my stop bus is and how to use the Dublin bus app.
Sometimes Gary cooked a little bit to much and asked me if i want to eat something as well and it was always really good, i loved it =)
The Host were really kind, funny and helpful.
It was a pleasure to stay with them, I had a great time.
Joe and Garry are fantastic and really caring because the stay felt like I was at home. Also the dog is really crazy he always wanted to play with somebody. I will miss him as well as Joe and Garry.
Wish you all the best for the future and stay as you are.
Gary and Joe are lovely host and were very welcoming, friendly and helpful during my stay. If I could, I would give them more than 5 Hearts♥️ This is the best homestay I've ever stayed in. I stayed with them for one month and it was really great time. They cared about me and I could ask them for help in any situation. They really made me feel at home.Also the location was very convenient. And the house was clean and tidy and there's nothing I can complain about.
I highly recommend the place and the host to people who want to have an amazing time in Dublin.
Thank you very much for everything.
Gary and Joe, they are amazing! They helped us in everything they could. They are really friendly and kindly. And the house everytime was cleaned. Gary and Joe are the best landlords what we met, they are really goods persons and we really felt like a home. They made us felt like a family!! And Billy (the dog) was a good boy and very funy! Irzio and me really recommend them!!
Garry and Joe are the best hosts you could wish for. Both are super friendly and made me feel home for the time I stayed in their place. On top they have a super cute dog as well.
