Eva and Bob are excellent host providing us with a lot of useful information regarding Dublin. Both of them are very friendly and helpful which made us feel like living in our home. The house is located in a quiet and safe residential area next to a bus stop which bring us into the city centre and major tourist areas within 30 minutes. The Irish dog Pixie is lovely. Highly recommended if you are looking for real Irish experience. This is a great family to stay with.

Eva and Bob were great hosts to us as it was our first time in Ireland and we were looking to settle in Dublin long term. We were provided with breakfast each morning which was a good bonus for us as we did not know this was included. Also, we were allowed shared use of the fantastic kitchen area and Eva offered us plates of pasta and bowls of soup when she made them. We were also helped with information about finding a flat to rent and looking for jobs as well as other local information such as bus routes and local attractions. My mum came to visit during our stay and Eva very kindly offered to pick her up from the bus stop and made a room available for her to stay the night. As we found a flat to rent in the centre of Dublin, Eva drove us to our new place with all our belongings which was a big help for us. I would recommend to stay with Bob and Eva as they made us feel very welcome and they also have a really nice dog, Pixie!
