Agnes and her family is a wonderful host!!! The room is exactly what you see in the photos and it really is cosy and quaint. They are very helpful and even have a big box of guide maps and tour maps for you to look through. The neighborhood is great if you like quiet and peaceful. Their daughter is super friendly and made me feel very welcomed. I absolutely loved staying here! Highly recommend!!

We had a very nice stay with Agnes, Nick and lovely Ivy. They lent us their bikes to cycle to the beach or explore Donabate. We had a nice breakfast in the morning and could use the kitchen to cook our dinner. They showed us around and spent some entertaining evenings with us. Nick even drove us to the train station as we were leaving.
Thank you for all the unforgettable moments. Now we will never cook our rice wrong again! ;)
Great stay! Awesome ppl! Perfect directions to everything. Loved it all no complaints and would love to stay in Donabate again!
Perfect , good family, clean room, good location, and... Lovely...
