Would definetly recommend this stay to anyone!! The neighbourhood is beautiful, quiet and safe, the bus takes you to city centre in around 10 minutes and is constantly passing by in a 10~15 minutes frame. The room is clean, spacious and has a bathroom. Sean and Michelle were very kind and helpful, they offered breakfast on the first day and for my stay personally i arrived in Dublin at 1h30am and they stayed late to check me in. My stay was short but i would definetly take the oportunity to ask some travelling advices and catch up with Sean and Michelle during the breakfast should i have some more time. Congratulations to the family and thank you!
Had an excellent time in Dublin.
Sean and Michelle's house is lovely and the room is very beautiful.
They are perfect host, including for advises to plan your trip in Dublin.
I can only say, it was great, thanks to them.
Sean et Michele sont très accueillants. Le chambre est belle et le lit est confortable. La vue sur Dublin est sympa autant que quartier. Merci à eux pour leur bonne humeur et leur gentillesse.
It was a delightful experience to stay at Sean's. The house is lovely and tastefully refurbished, the bedroom is super comfortable and spacious, the complimentary breakfast very convenient and the location, although not central, is indeed quite pleasant. The frequent bus to Dublin centre is just 1 minute away and there are a couple of great sights within walking distance, namely the Botanic Gardens and historical Glasnevin Cemetery. The hosts are welcoming and gave us some excellent tips. Absolutely recommended!
Very nice couple amazing house with bus at door to the center. All the conditions to feel at home for sure. Thanks for everything and the tips. Hope to meet u again Sean and Michele
Good room for a great price.
Sean was friendly and helpfull. He even made us scones on the last day.
9/10 would visit again.
My stay with Sean was perfect! He and his family are very accommodating and kind. The room is very big, very clean, the bed is very comfortable and it is a real plus to have a desk with a screen to work on. The shared bathroom is also clean and the renter has his own sink and toilet in the room.
The bus stop for the city centre is a 3-minute walk away.
If I need it again I will not hesitate to come back!
Sean and Michelle are really nice and welcoming, the house is so beautiful and quiet! I would really recommend this family, they are all so lovely!
