Louise made me welcome but without any undue fuss. She and Paul were helpful with local transport and places to eat. We found a mutual interest in life in Australia.
I was at Louise's house for a month and it was an incredible experience. I felt at home and they welcomed me as one of the family. Louise accompanied me to visit some of the most important places in Dublin and we even went on a weekend trip. His daughters are lovely and the house is very cozy. At the end of the month I did not want to return to my house, I was really comfortable, I would love to visit them again.
A lovely family. I was very well welcome and I felt like at home.
I can only recommend Louise and her lovely family.
