This is a good location close to Dublin airport, with just the right amount of small village amenities at hand. The room is certainly exactly as pictured, and the hosts very welcoming. They also allowed our little daughter to engage with theirs.
To my mind this place is the best location for staying not far away from Dublin. It is easy to get to Dublin by train. There are also the places of interest in Donabate. For example, a large park with animals is there. The room was cosy and clean.There was everything in the kitchen for cooking. Agnes is very hospitable. And She is ready to help in every situation. And thank You for calling a taxi!
Agnes and Nick were great hosts, very friendly, and provided us with everything we needed. The room was comfortable and clean, with all the information on the town, transport links, restaurants which was very useful. The town is a little quiet, but there's a nice beach, with a restaurant overlooking it.
Nick & Agnes were brilliant hosts ! Wonderful room, nice place & very tidy. They gave us all informations we needed & Agnes took us for a trip to the beach together with little Yvi. We can recommend them 100 % to everyone who wants to stay at a wonderful place where you could feel like home.
Die ganze Familie von Nick hat uns freundlich willkommen geheissen. Es war alles sehr gut organisiert und wir hatten alles... Wir wurden auch mit der Gegend vertraut gemacht und konnten die Gästevelos nutzen, das hat Spass gemacht :O)
Es war sehr toll, vielen Dank...
The whole family of Nick has made us feel friendly welcome. It was all very well organized and we had everything ... We were also familiarized with the area and could use the guest bicycles, which was fun: O)
It was very great, thanks ...
Agnes and Nick are wonderful hosts: considerate, simple and flexible. We had full access to their lovely home, the living room to watch Soccer World Cup, the kitchen to prepare dinner and dining room to have great conversations with Agnes, Nick and their lovely two-year old daughter, Ivy (not sure about the exact spelling). Agnes provided a lot of practical information and took us on a bicycle tour along the beautiful beaches and coastlines nearby. We took the bus outside the house to downtown Dublin and local train to Howth village, both took less than an hour each way with great views of the countryside and coastlines.
My kids and I really enjoyed our stay with this cosy family! Nice room and beautiful beach nearby. We would love to come back!
