Very nice! Facility was really good. Jenny & Pete was kind. We can use seperate bathroom. The location is about 15 minutes away from city center. They sent me a very long description about traffic. Taking a bus from city center is not difficult, but the bus stop is in the middle of Abbey street lower. It's not easy to find, at first.
My friend stayed together says.'Best airbnb house ever!'.
Die Unterkunft war wunderschön und wir haben eine tolle Zeit in Dublin verbracht! Jenny&Pete waren sehr freundlich, bemüht und hilfsbereit. Wir waren eine Mädelsrunde und haben zu dritt in der Wohnung übernachtet. Es war alles vorbereitet, sehr sauber und modern. Wir konnten auch die Küche mitbenutzen und haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Die Lage ist optimal um sowohl schnell in die Stadt zu gelangen, als auch um Ausflüge in die Umgebung zu unternehmen. Die Nachbarschaft ist sehr ruhig und gut. Alles in allem eine absolut empfehlenswerte Unterkunft.
Nice and tidy room in a nice apartment and a nice clean private bathroom. The house located in a nice neighborhood with good transport links to central Dublin. Jenny great host and really helpful, she gave good advice, public transport cards and maps from the city.
Jenny and Pete, provided a lovely and comfortable room for my father and I to stay in. The lovely couple were very hospitable and accommodating. They were more than happy to give us any directions or recommendations for anything Dublin related. I would definitely recommend Jenny and Pete as hosts!
Thank you once again Jenny and Pete!
La Camera è carina, pulita e silenziosa, ed è situata in un quartiere residenziale molto bello e a poche fermate di autobus dal centro. La camera è ottima per due, un pò stretta quando viene aggiunto il materasso a terra per la terza persona. Il bagno è ottimo, pulito e spazioso. Purtroppo ho avuto l'occasione di parlare con Jenny e Pete solo per 5 minuti, visto che durante il giorno lavorano entrambi e noi rientravamo sempre abbastanza tardi la sera, perciò non c'è stata modo di conoscerci. Giudizio positivo, la consiglio a chiunque voglia visitare Dublino.
Great rental! Just a short jaunt to the Dart station which got us to the City Center in a snap. Great pedestrian area. We were hardly there due to all the sightseeing we squeezed in, but it is very clean, comfortable, and very cute! Plenty of extras, and even bathrobes to make us feel right at home. Unfortunately, we never did have a chance to meet Jenny. We did however, meet Pete and he was more than accommodating, especially with us coming home so late in the evening with our busy holiday schedule. Highly recommend this cozy castle. Many thanks to Pete and Jenny!
Jenny and Pete were fantastic with communication, and provided a safe, clean and well appointed room and bathroom. I felt like I was getting five star treatment! Unfortunately I barely saw my hosts as I came during the work week, but they were wonderful when we did chat. I think anyone would be comfortable staying with Jenny and Pete! Wish I could have stayed longer.
Killester, Clontarf is a quaint little area too and it warrants a walk around. Take up the suggestions in J&P's guide book for pubs too!
