Brendan and Fi were the best hosts I've experienced on Airbnb yet. Brendan was very knowledgeable and planned out our trip and sights to see. He was always there to help if we needed anything. One of the nicest people you will come across. Definitely would recommend if you are staying in Ireland you won't find a better place. Thanks again for my stay!

Brendan, Fi, Ben, Chester and Snowy where amazing hosts. When we arrived, Brenden gave us a thorough breakdown of the home and surroundings, he also readily answered any questions we had and gave us great travel advice. We had a great stay! We felt safe and welcomed! Beautiful countryside escape. Definitely recommend a stay!

Our Host Brendan, Fi's husband met up with us outside the local church to help us find our way to the house, which was very near. The home from home was beautiful and far exceeded our expectations in all ways, from facilities to cleanliness. We had opted out of the welcome pack as I have too many allergies but Fi had already told me about the local supermarket which again was very easy to find. Brendan came into the house armed with maps and places of local interest and when he found out about our interests he and a friend spent a whole mid morning with us showing us unmarked local sites.

One of the best and friendliest places we have stayed at. We would definitely go again another time. The place was big and spotlessly clean. The hosts even provided lots of food for us. Brendan looked after us well, and even showed us how to play hurling. We highly recommend this place.

We had a wonderful weekend at Fi and Brendan's house. We did not get to meet Fi but Brendan made us feel extremely welcome. He gave us some information on local sites to visit and encouraged us to contact him should we require any further assistance. They also stocked the fridge with all the essentials for breakfast the next day. Overall we had a very positive experience and would highly recommend staying with Fi and Brendan.

Just like staying with friends. Brendan is incredibly thoughtful, even helping us with a personal situation we had failed to plan for. The cottage is clean and had everything we needed for comfort. The area is beautiful and very quiet (we over slept every day of our stay). Truly a wonderful place.

Fi and Brendan were great hosts and the cottage is lovely, clean and spacious. We stayed there for 2 nights with a toddler. The location is perfect for those wishing to see a bit of the 'off the beaten path' Ireland - bogs, stud farms and such. We had a grand time exploring and learning and would definitely recommend staying with Fi and Brendan if you are in the area.

I live in rural Kildare which is about an hour from Dublin.
I know the area well because I was raised in the local parish.
Our house is next to the one advertised and we have 2 pet dogs.
Kildare is within easy travelling distance to race courses [Curragh, Punchestown and Naas] and scenic attractions. We are just an hour away from the famous Glendalough, 10 minutes from the Market Town of Athy and close to Kildare and Newbridge. The area is steeped in history. The Japanese Gardens and the Irish National Stud along with Kildare Village Outlet Shopping are located adjacent to Kildare town.
