We absolutely loved staying with Maeve and Ken. They were so friendly, spent the time to go over Dublin highlights, provided an awesome breakfast and were a joy to be around. I totally appreciated all their bussing advice and they even gave business cards with how to get downtown and back. I would highly recommend them. Thanks for having us!

You could not find a better place to stay in Dublin. Maeve and Ken are so incredibly kind they will treat you like family. Ken is a historian and enjoys sharing stories about Ireland and beyond. Both have traveled the world and understand how it feels it be a traveler and endeavour to make your traveling experience the best it can be. We hope to one day again to be sitting at their table sharing a story, a laugh and a glass of wine

What a wonderful experience to stay with Maeve & Ken during our visit to Dublin. They welcome you into their home as if you are family, which is just how you feel by the time you leave. Our room was lovely and the location worked out perfect for us. A short 15 min. bus ride into the city and 10 min. ride to the airport. Maeve & Ken were very helpful with recommendations of things to do (loved our day to Howth). For a real Irish experience this is the place!

We arrived at Maeve's and Ken's place a little early but they already had our room ready. They were communicating with us prior to our arrival and made sure that we knew how to get to their house. The house was directly across the street from the bus stop to take us downtown. They even provided us with bus passes with some money on them and then had us go down to the local market just a block away to top it up. There is a pub just next door to the market and a full shopping center just 3 blocks away. Ken and Maeve went over the map with us upon arrival to point out the things to see and the places to eat. We especially enjoyed the Church Pub where we had a delicious meal and could see Irish music and Irish dancing. Thank you Ken and Maeve for making us feel like part of your family. PS the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were lovely.

We highly recommend KEN & Maeve 's airbnb. They are the hosts you want to find when you stay at Airbnb. They make you feel at home, answer questions, engage in wonderful conversations, provide you with a lovely room & bathroom, and breakfast. They pay attention to details to meet your needs. They are warm & kind hosts- if in Dublin, try to stay with them. Bonus is they're on bus line to airport & City center of Dublin.

Maeve & Ken User ProfileMaeve & Ken is a superhost.

We are natives of Dublin and have lived n Dublin, Cork, Tipperary Albuquerque NM and San Jose CA. Both of us have travelled to North and South America, Africa, Asia and of course Europe. Besides travel we love music, art and good food plus messing about in our back garden. We have two daughters and a son and are fortunate to have 5 grandchildren. Our extended family and friends are an integral part of our lives and that group continues to grow as we host wonderful people from all over the world.
We love meeting new people and enjoy the experience of sharing our home. So far we have had a 100% positive experience with the many guests we have hosted and we have hosted close to 300 people since March 2014. Part of this is that people know they are coming to a family home and are not looking for a five start hotel experience. Our home is a real place where family and friends drop in sometime to leave a grandchild or to mind their family pet and other times to have a cup of tea and chat. We look forward to meeting you in 2016.
