Debbie & John
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
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.
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 and her husband John were very, very nice. So helpfull and polite with me. Their place was absolutely confortable, cute and with wonderful soroundings. Thanks a lot!
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.
It's amazing people and home! Debbie and John is very kind, sweet, helpful. I stayed 2 weeks. Everything is perfect! Someday if i go to Ireland, I wanna stay this cozy home again. Don't be worry. Just contact to Debbie!
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!!!
This week was a great week, the house is quiet and we can go everywhere and when I want thanks to the DART train near to the house.
Thanks you very much to Debbie and John for this week (and molly).
I will come back.
I had a great time staying with Debbie and John! :-)They are very friendly people, who helped me with everything and who made me feel welcome at all times.The house is absolutely lovely, spacious and very clean and the city centre is easily accessible by bus and dart. Another big plus is that Debbie and John are great chefs, so you get yummy food every night!
Once more thank you soo sooo much!!! :-) I ll be in touch once I get back!
