Amanda made me feel very welcome in her home and I really enjoyed my stay. The log cabin is in a lovely rural setting and Amanda's dogs and horses really add to the experience. Breakfast in the morning was great - just like I have at home and the stove & tv in the sitting room were really relaxing in the evenings.
We had a fantastic time at Amanda's place -- very cozy farm house with dogs, horses, the whole lot. It was a great jumping off point for hiking in Glendalough and elsewhere. Thanks!
What a lovely house in the Wicklow mountains, we had a nice stay with Amanda and the dogs, the Wicklow mountains are very beautiful, our stay was to short!
I had a very good time in Amanda's house. The room was clean and Amanda was very helpful.
I can't say anything bad and I would stay there again.
This place is perfect for hiking in the Wicklow Mountains.
Thanks for everything.
Amanda was a superb host with great communication. This Log cabin is in a really beautiful off the beaten track area and has really friendly dogs! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a peaceful place to unwind and relax!
We had an amazing time at Amanda's. She was an incredibly warm host and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and happy. Her house is a beautiful rustic chic farmhouse that looks even better in person than the photos here. Nestled between the rolling green hills in the Irish countryside, our stay here (brief as it was) was a high point of our trip!
Amanda was helpful with directions before I arrived, was there to meet me, and happy to see me. I was travelling alone so it was especially nice for me to have Amanda's company in the evening. The house is beautiful, the room is spacious and tastefully decorated. There is an en suite bathroom. Everything wad clean, comfortable and well presented. I was made feel like a friend on a visit,which I found delightful. My first airbnb experience, I will definitely use airbnb again. Thank you Amanda. K
About the Host, Amanda
I love living in the Wicklow Hills! I enjoy meeting people from far off places, and listening to their life experiences. I enjoy the outdoor life - horses, dogs, walking. I love my cosy home - feel I don't need a holiday to 'get away from it all', why I am living in Nervana.
