    Eva and Martin are extremely friendly and provide fully hospitality.
    Their cutie boy-paddy doggy is also lovely.
    All in all, if you love coast and doggies, here would be a perfact place for you to explore the different beautiful faces of Ireland.
    Thanks Eva and Martin ;)

  • Eve was a great host! Even though I only stayed one night, she and her husband were very kind to me and made me feel at home. The bed was also very comfortable. Eve went above and beyond and cooked me a lovely dinner complete with a delicious dessert. We had a lovely walk along the harbor with good conversation. The village is nice and within a 30 minute walk you can get to the castle and an hour walk to Skerries (another great village) or a short bus ride. I didn't go into Dublin so I cannot comment on that. Easy access from the airport though.

    Thank you so much for everything! :)

  • How to say about Eve! She ve been the most fascinated host I’ve ever had so far. Eve is a amazed woman, with full of energy, sociable and talkative. She looked after all the time, and made me feel at home since I arrived there.
    Don't hesitate to have your meals (dinner) with Eve and Martin (his partner).. I did it twice and I’m going to remember it for the rest of my live... During the meals, in the living room, we were talking, laughing and singing till late.. very late. The matter is that after dinner, climbing up stairs, just to get your room, might be a difficult mission.. if you have drunk 4 glasses of wine.
    Eve is as well a very good cook.. you will enjoy eating in her house... sure.
    And.. enjoy your stay in Eve’s house... you won't regret it! Highly recommended.

    Companys catalans que estau cercant una estada agradable i simpàtica cambra aprop de Dublin (40 minuts en bus). Aquí teniu una opció excel.lent de conèixer la simpatia irlandesa en la seva màxima expressió.
    Eve i Martin, a part de ser molt adorables, vos faran sentir a casa tot el temps i vos faran tremolar durant els fascinants discursos mentre sopau.. acompanyat d’una ampolla de bon vi negre i escolatant música reivindicativa dels anys 60. Tot una joia a ser descoberta, però no ho digueu massa fort! Que sigui un secret entre nosaltres!
    Vaig estar tres dies, descobrint la zona, especialment la ciutat portuària de Skerries (6 km enfora de Balbriggan.. o una hora caminat des de la casa de Eve), i menjant fantàstics pastissos acompanyat de saborosos cafès en el nombrosos tee rooms de Skerries. Per xuclar-se els dits! També hi ha romàntics restaurants i vistosos pubs.
    Vos recoman aquest lloc, sense dubte... estareu ben acompanyats en tot moment. Repetiré aviat!

    Oh Daniel, Thank you. Come back anytime, with or without Marc. He can sleep on the sofa...

  • I had a very fun four days with Eve and Martin. They are so sweet and welcoming and helpful. The room was very cozy, nice bed, and clean. The train to Dublin is a short, max 15-minute walk from their house. Non-smokers might find it a bit smokey. If you like dogs, you will love Paddy. I would recommend to smokers who like dogs. Also, Eve is a great cook and happily played mom to me, even though she's a lot younger than I am. You won't leave hungry. Thank you Eve and Marty, I will always remember staying with you.

    Response from Eve:

    Thanks Fred! You are welcome back anytime. And I have given up smoking - day 2 with the e-ciggies. And yes, I will still let other people smoke.:-)

  • My time with Marty & Eve was beautiful! I booked for 7 days but stayed for 3 weeks. I was welcomed and looked after, not to mention Eve's handmade german noodels - yummy! and not forgetting the cheesecake... Eve said it may have been a good thing that I started my 6 month journey in Ireland with them.. but then again, it may not- as I came to Ireland to improve my english and all we did was speak German. doh! but it is my first trip on my own and I needed time to collect myself. I am certain I will be back with Eve & Marty - latest at Xmas!

    Response from Eve:

    See you at Xmas! If you have the time! It was a pleasure to have you here. You arrived as a stranger and left as a "daughter"... and schnuudelchen misses you, he is pining! cheesecake is a promise! :) see you soon

  • I spent a wonderful long weekend with Eve and Marty. They are very open-hearted ppl. who welcomed me to their home very warmly and took great care of me throughout the whole weekend despite of my last minute request. The house is very cosy and comfortable. There's a direct bus connection from Dublin Airport to Balbriggan (20 min, 5 euros). The train ride to Dublin takes 30 min and the scenery is breathtaking. Balbriggan is a nice little town and has a beautiful beach.

  • Eve and Marty are very Kind people! They made me comfortable and happy. Every morning and evening Eve gave me a nice meal! It's really good. And the house is very lovely and has nice view.
    There are a nice beach and a beautiful castle in Balbriggan. So nice! That village is very quiet and peaceful. If I come to Dublin, I'll go there! Lovely time!
