Ein schöner Aufenthalt bei sehr lieben Menschen ist nun leider vorbei. Bei Maeve & Ken fühlt man sich sofort zuhause. Sehr nette Gastgeber mit einer sehr hilfsbereiten und liebevollen Art. Super Tipps für Dublin. Sauberes Zimmer und Bad. Sehr gutes Frühstück. Vielen lieben Dank für alles. Bis zum nächsten mal. Liebe Grüsse Barbara & Thomas
Little piece of heaven,
The place itself is perfect. Well located, midway between the airport and downtown.
There are several buses to go downtown and the bus stop is a few meters from their house. To go to the airport there are two buses passing each 15 minutes.
The description and photos don't make justice for how nice this place actually is.
From day one Meave and Ken made me feel comfortable and welcomed. In my first day there I end up staying the whole night talking and having some wine with them until 2 am.
Ken thanks for making me discover the red Zinfandel!
Their attention for details on how to make the guests comfortable is amazing, they even had a US standard power cord on my room.
They gave me several tips about where to go. Their recommendation about restaurants were very nice.
Ken and Maeve were always ready to engage in conversation and their knowledge about Irish history was amazing.
I couldn't recommend more this place as I enjoyed Ken and Maeve's house and company as much as I enjoyed Dublin.
I hope to be back there, next time with my whole family.
We spent an amazing week in the lovely comfortable room. Ken and Maeve were very welcoming and helpful. The location was perfect to access transportation to the city center. We would definitively stay with them again if we are ever coming back to Dublin.
Maeve and Ken were wonderful hosts! I had my reservations about using Airbnb for the first time. However, these two made me feel very comfortable with the idea. I felt very welcomed and safe in their home! I enjoyed spending time with them and their family. I would recommend anyone looking to tour ireland stay here.
We had a great time staying with Maeve and Ken. It was our first time using AirBnB and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Maeve was really helpful with tips for things to do in Dublin - we even went out to the coast which we would never have known about! The house itself was a good location, although not in the city centre it was very easy to get a bus into town and also out to the airport. The room was lovely, it had a sink in which was great as the bathroom was shared – although we never had to wait to use it, and the breakfast was nice and easy –just came and went as we pleased. Overall a fantastic stay and we would recommend it to friends – Maeve and Ken were great hosts.
Dear Maeve, Ken, and everyone reading
It was my first time using AirBNB, and after his experience, CERTAINLY not the last. It was most pleasent staying with you.
I was attending a job interview in Dublin, and I was a bit stressed. Maeve provided an amazing and calm atmosphere and it helped me relax. The whole house is very clean and extreamly cozy. If I ever go back to Dublin, I will make sure to stay with Maeve and Ken again.
Thank you!! An easy 5/5. Way beoynd what i ever expected from renting a room on AirBNB.
Maeve was a lovely, wonderful and perfect host. We deeply enjoyed our stay at her beautiful home. Unfortunately we couldn't meet Ken but we heard only the best. If you wish to stay at a house with a familiar atmosphere this airbnb is the best of the best.
Maeve helped us a lot.. not only with busses and sights in Dublin also with personal belongings..
If we ever come to Dublin again we'll hopefully stay again at their home.
