Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Me and my four kids stayed here during our holiday in Ireland. Derek and Adeline were very helpful - as an example, when I had some trouble with my car, Derek called his friend who turned up in 10 minutes and fixed it with the snap of his fingers! We did some day-trips with our car, and visited Dublin with the bus 120 in order to avoid traffic- and parking problems there. There's a small shop for groceries just across the street.
    The house was very clean and very roomy.
    Definitely recommended!

  • The place was wonderful, Derek was an outstanding host in every respect and the bus ride to Dublin was far quicker and easier than I thought it would be.

  • Our family of five stayed 7 days in this charming stone and brick cottage in the small, quiet village of Straffan.
    Our hosts, Derek and Adeline, welcomed us in the most friendly and helpful manner and this continued throughout our stay. They were easy to reach and quick to respond.
    Transportation by one bus (stop is 4 min. walk from house) to the heart of Dublin (Temple Bar, etc) takes 40 min. and by car about 25 min.
    House is roomy, very tastefully furnished and very, very clean. Kitchen is fully equipped. Rooms were much nicer than the photos led us to expect.
    House is across the street from the village church as well as a small, but well stocked grocery store. Two very large grocery stores are a 10-minute drive. Excellent village pub short walk away.
    Overall our visit went very well. Roomy house, friendly helpful hosts, easy access to Dublin and surroundings. Ten on a scale of ten.
