Maire made us feel very welcome in her house. The communication before arrival was good. The house was big and clean, very close to the airport. We had everything we wanted. We would definitely recommend her! Thanks for everything Maire!
Bien que n'étant pas sur place, Maire a fait l'effort de se déplacer pour notre arrivée (19h00) et notre départ (8h00). Nous avons apprécié le fait de pouvoir solliciter la voisine en cas de besoin. Tout au long de notre séjour (5 jours), Maire est restée régulièrement en contact avec nous (téléphone, mails) pour s'assurer que tout allait bien et aussi pour nous donner des informations sur les événements et visites dans la région.
Le logement est fonctionnel et très bien équipé.
Le quartier est très calme et tranquille, propice au repos.
I worked in Dublin for over 30 years and in London for 5 years. I have visited a few European countries, and Turkey, Nigeria, Japan and USA (San Francisco and New York). I am married and retired and I don't get the opportunity to travel abroad much now. But touring around Ireland is lovely too, especially along the West coast and going to venues where traditional Irish music is played, mostly in pubs late at night. I speak Irish (Gaelic) quite well.
I also enjoy classical music events mainly in the National Concert Hall in Dublin and visit London for shopping and shows now and then. Also like jazz (Cork annual Jazz Festival coming up end Oct.) and attended the last two Leonard Cohen concerts in Dublin.
