Everything was just perfect. Perfect indications to arrive straight on the flat, and all the accommodation were exactly as it was presented on the website. We just went for the St Patricks Day, and we really loved our stay on the flat. Very central and close to public transports. Recommend!

Very nice, clean, warm flat with pretty much everything you could need. Really good transport links with quick and easy to access the city centre. We walked it a couple of times too. The local area is pleasant and quiet and worth exploring, and the seafront promenade is only a short walk from the flat. Jenny and Pete are extremely helpful, they really went out of their way to provide us with such assistance as we required.

We stayed at Jenny & Pete's lovely apartment for a couple of days over the bank holiday weekend. Our flight was a little delayed, but Pete patiently waited for us to arrive and gave us a tour of the apartment. We were there to attend a wedding, so didn't have much time for sightseeing, but the House Manual was really detailed and gave some great suggestions for things to do/places to eat. The apartment was cozy and very clean, and felt like a real home from home. It had everything we needed,including a fantastic range of dvd's (great taste, guys!)It was the first time that we had booked somewhere through airbnb, but Jenny & Pete made the process really easy. We'd highly recommend their place -thanks for such a great experience!

Jenny and Pete are wonderful hosts. They were easy to communicate with and replied quickly. They thought of everything and are very accommodating. Lots of nice little touches all around the place... plenty of supplies, toiletries, nice soaps, guidebooks, and a thoughtful house manual. The place is just as it looks in the pictures, but you don't get the sense of love, kindness, and sweetness until you actually step into the flat. It's also super clean. I would highly recommend!!

Jenny and Pete are great hosts, waiting us until we arrived because our flight was delayed. Jenny gave us all informations we need to stay in the apartment and all documents we need to visit Dublin was into the flat. The apartment is well situated to go to the city center by bus on 10min. The bus stop is very near the flat. We very enjoy our stay , thank you again!
