“Amazing stay, short and sweet. Stayed in the triple room, very cosy with a nice touch for breakfast. Lovely location next to the beach and very close to the airport and the city too. Got friendly with the locals in the pebble beach pub round the corner. Jackie arranged our taxi to the airport which was great, overall highly recommended”

“Noreen’s place is right on the sea — so the surrounding area is calm and a lot of fresh air. The room is spacious and comfortable with a super soft bed and a couch. I had such a comfortable sleep, and the thoughtful touches like the toasted bread, tea and coffee, and TV were very appreciated! I would definitely recommend/stay again.”

“I spent 10 beautiful days as Clare's guest. Came to Dublin to accompany my daughter to her work and visit the town. I must say at once that Clare is a unique person with a big heart, kind, generous, informal, discreet. Clare helped me with useful information about public transport and other things. I immediately felt at home away from home. Clare's house is in a quiet neighbourhood near a beautiful park. From Clare's house you can reach the city centre in 20 minutes. The bus is around the corner 3 mins on foot. The room was warm clean and cozy. Clean bathroom. I could use the well equipped kitchen and the fridge. Breakfast was great. Very good WI-FI connection. Thanks for everything Clare.”
