Maeve and Ken were excellent hosts and the room worked out really well. We enjoyed chatting with such a friendly couple and appreciated assistance with transport and sightseeing decisions!
Maeve & Ken are awesome!! We stayed there for 2 nights, we had a very warm welcome, they invited us for tea and cake and gave us very useful informations. Maeve & Ken are very open minded, super friendly and very helpful. Perfect breakfast and super clean rooms. We loved to stay at your home. Hope we see us again :)
Maeve & Ken ist echt toll! Wir buchten 2 Nächte und haben es nicht bereut. Sie sind sehr gastfreundlich, hilfsbereit und empfangen ihre Gäste mit offenen Armen. Das Zimmer & Sanitäranlagen waren sehr sauber und das Frühstück war toll. Wenn wir wieder nach Dublin kommen, buchen wir wieder bei Maeve & Ken :) Nur zu empfehlen!
We had a wonderful stay and Maeve and Ken’s!
They are very friendly and helpful hosts. They gave us recommendations about places to visit both in local area and in the centre of Dublin. Also the Leap cards they let us use were very useful.
The place is very nice, clean and located 10–15 minutes by bus from the airport, which was particularly convenient for us. Everything you might need is there. There is a very nice garden as well. Also, very good breakfast and coffee.
In sum, great place to stay.
Maeve & Ken Gavin were great hosts. We had a lovely time chatting with them over their dining table and enjoyed a comfortable stay in their home before leaving Dublin.
They gave us all the information we needed and were nice enough to call a taxi for us in the early morning. Maeve was up very early that morning to say goodbye to us and let us out.
A few details: They had lots of recommendations for places to eat & things to do. Also, in the room, they provided things like an adapter and even a safe if you wanted a place to keep your valuables. Some things (I believe like toothpaste & laundry) were provided at a small fee but we thought that was more than reasonable.
Eines vorweg: Ich habe sehr hohe Ansprüche und tu mir oftmals schwer, mich aus meiner Komfortzone herauszubewegen. Entspricht allerdings etwas nicht meinen Erwartungen, kann ich sehr leidensfähig sein. Und ich bin ehrlich.
Maeve und Ken sind ein sehr interessantes und sympathisches Paar. Ihr Haus liegt gut gelegen zwischen dem Flughafen und der Innenstadt. Aufgrund der tollen Busverbindung direkt vor der Haustüre ist beides in etwa fünfzehen Minuten zu erreichen. Ich hatte sehr großes Glück mit meinem Zimmer, denn da es zum tollen Garten hinaus lag, war es zudem ruhig! Alles war sauber! Ich würde wiederkommen. Privat zu leben lässt viele Einblicke in die Mentalität von Menschen zu, das gefällt mir.
Maeve and Ken's hospitality was warm, genuine, and exactly what we needed at the end of our ten day trip! They were like family or people you have known for a very long time! They had wonderful recommendations and made planning our day very easy! I would highly recommend staying with Maeve and Ken!!! They are wonderful people with a very nice home especially the back garden!
This was by far our best AirBNB experience during our 2-month Europe trip. Maeve and Ken were so accommodating and kind. The bed was comfortable and the house was beautiful. They've thought everything through. And the location is PERFECT--the bus stop is right across the street and you're about 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from downtown. LOVED IT .
