    I stayed with Debbie and John for five months (not the easiest months, during the pandemic!). They were simply great! The location is also very good, close to the dart and in a very nice area. I wouldn't recommend enough!!

    We liked to stay with Debbie and John. It's a family home. Both were easy to communicate with. Connection with City of Dublin is excellent by public transport. We enjoyed very much the surrounding villages like Malladine and Howth. By car we went there for diner. Nice restaurants at the seasite.

    We have booked 2 rooms for 4 nights.
    What happens to this family ? On Homestay website they pretend to be friendly and helpful …
    But they gave no information about transportation in the city, no timetables, no map about the bus stop neither about the station.
    When we asked about these points they said to have no knowledge because they don’t use them !
    They didn’t know an didn’t say that the train doesn’t work in Sunday before 9 am, so I was at the station at 6.30 am and I had to return at their home and asked John to call a taxi for me. Fortunately, he did.
    We are used to choosing Homestay to exchange with our hosts and we have been really disappointed : no exchange, only the bare minimum, they stayed in their personal space to be quiet.
    The house is nice but I notice the comments are old and few in number while the rooms seem to be booked a lot.

    Sadly these two mature ladies did not have the experience they wanted.

    We went to great lengths to help them, but nothing was good enough and I had suggested that what they really wanted was a hotel and not an economical home-stay.

    They used the wrong shower and then complained about it, when we had shown them the elecric shower. They took around two hours to leave the kitchen in the mornings, but we didn't ask them to have breakfast and leave the Kitchen.

    You just can't please all the people all of the time.

    Debbie and John were very kind hosts. I stayed in Artane for 3.5 months and really enjoyed the time there.the room was very cozy and had a perfect size and also the rooms like kitchen and bath were very nice and well equipped.

    I would love to come back to Dublin and I would definitely recommend Debbie and John as a host.

    Thank you very much for the great hospitality!

    Debbie, John and their family were extremely hospitable during my stay. They were very friendly and made me feel right at home, giving great advice on the local area and also Dublin. I highly recommend Debbie & John to anyone looking for a homestay. I look forward to staying with them on my next trip.

    I couldn't ask for a better experience! I stayed at Debbie and John's house for one week. Their house is light, clean and very comfortable. The rooms are all beautiful, my room ( number 3) was exactly the one in the photos. It's small but there's everything that you need for a super small price!! Debbie and John are amazing: they're very helpful and always ready to give you suggestions, or even to talk if you only want to talk!! They've an amazing daughter which is 19 years old and a lovely dog! The house is well located: just 5 minuts walking by the DART station which brings you in the center in 10 minutes. Near the house you can find whatever you need: supermarket (Opened until 9pm!), pub, shops etc. I absolutely recommend this house to whoever need to study, work or just visit Dublin!! Thank you for everything, I hope to came back soon!!!
