Anne was hands down the best host we've ever had. She is the kindest, most charming woman you're likely to meet, not to mention the most helpful. And we were hardly simple guests to please. Here's a little sample of what went down:
1) One of our party has severe dietary restrictions. I let Anne know in advance and she was totally on top of it. The rest of us ADORED her beautiful and delicious (seriously, try the oatmeal) breakfasts.
2) She was an absolute encyclopedia on what the best things to do in Dublin are, and was even kind enough to book us tables at restaurants in advance. Forget yelp, tripadvisor, etc. Anne knows all.
3) We were really bad about locking ourselves in/out of places. What did Anne and her lovely husband John do? Stay up late at night in case we needed help. They even brought the champagne on New Years.
4) Beyond all this, the part that truly brought it home for me was the little touches I don't even see in 5 star hotels. We had delicious fresh cookies, tea, and water in our rooms nightly, and she made the beds up perfectly every day. We may have arrived strangers, but we parted (website hidden);DR: 5 star hosts, with gorgeously decorated rooms at an extremely reasonable price. The best place to stay in Dublin.
This was our second visit to Ann and John. It was like visiting old friends. The welcome was as warm as could be, with tea, biscuits, and a nice chat. The breakfast is still the best on the planet! When in Sutton again, we will return to stay. Many thanks to our hosts
Beautiful home with a spectacular garden. Rooms nicely decorated and spacious and the host thought of every details including leaving a spare power outlet for us. We were a family of 3 and we got two rooms, with personal touches in each room, Loved Anne's book collection too. The tour of the neighborhood and helpful tips for our onwards journey was much appreciated too.

I had a wonder stay at Anne's home. She is very caring and generous. Breakfast was prepared both mornings that I was there and she even made one at 7pm because of my early flight out! Wonderful porridge, eggs, bacon, sausage, orange juice, coffee, and the list goes one. Even turned down the bed at night and provided all the fixings for tea and coffee in my room. Very comfortable bed that overlooked a beautiful garden and slight ocean view. Anne graciously drove me to and from the bus station and other locations, which was never expected. I would highly suggest her place as a home away from home, you will not be disappointed!
My parents stayed with Anne for several nights, and my sister and her boyfriend joined them for the final evening. All were absolutely delighted with their stay - my parents kept mentioning what a wonderful host Anne was, how beautiful the house, how delicious the food, how enchanted they were by all her hostess-flourishes. Anne was exceedingly kind and helpful with giving lifts to the Dart station, including a little tour of Howth and also restaurant recommendations. It would be very difficult to find a more beautiful or hospital place to stay - could not recommend highly enough!!!

About the Host, Anne
Hi, I'm Anne and I'm a very friendly and outgoing person. I 'm very open minded and love to try new things. I'm an Interior Designer and really love my work, and have travelled abroad on work projects. I love to visit markets, antique fairs, and buy old furniture. I paint and distress them with chalk paint and I give full and half day courses, and really enjoy teaching it. I always have a project on the go. I read a lot, and am a regular movie goer , and I love travelling, and have been to many countries. and also enjoy cruising, since I won our first cruise in a slogan competition ten years ago. I have just returned from a three week trip to California, during which I went on a seven day cruise up the Pacific coast way. It was fabulous. I love the States. While on my trip I learned how to play Sudouko. I'm now hooked.
I believe personality, fun and a strong sense that nothing is so precious that you can't relax, is fundamental to being a successful Super Host.
