Séjour au top! Richard et Gérard sont des hôtes attentionnés qui savent vous mettre à l'aise. La chambre était très confortable. J'y retournerais volontiers.
I had a great stay at Gerard and Richard's place. The apartment is well located in a calm and safe residential area, it's easy to go to the city center for there. The flat is cozy, I felt at home. The room is very comfortable and the two cats are adorable. I'll definitely come back!
Everything was excellent, no problems at all.
The guys were friendly and helpful, (the value of local knowledge shouldn't be underestimated when travelling), and the room was ideal for what I needed, very comfortable, and suitable to get a bit of work done.
Would be very happy to visit again sometime.
Richard received us when we arrived and we met Gerard later. Both gave us a very warm welcome as you expect when coming to a friend’s house. They gave us some precious indications and advice for food, drink and sightseeing. Excellent. The flat and room is exactly as shown in the pictures. The bed is comfortable and the area is very quiet which allowed us to sleep really well. The breakfast was simple with a really tasty and fresh loaf of bread that we loved. Overall really good experience. Would definitely recommend. Oh... and the 2 cats are probably the friendliest and most adorable we have ever been with.
They are fantastic, help me in everythings. I hope to come back!
The room is big and very confortable and not far the centre
Richard and Gerard were fantastic hosts. Their home was clean, and cozy. I was traveling alone and they made me feel very comfortable. The breakfast and coffee in the morning was a nice touch and certainly made me feel welcome, and the back garden was lovely to look out on. They were there to help with info about the city, maps, directions etc. but also gave me my privacy. Their home is in a good location, a little outside the center ( as stated) but I never felt unsafe walking to, or from the city. It was easy to navigate. Would definitely recommend!
We had a wonderful stay at Gerard and Richard's place. The apartment is really conveniently located in a cozy, calm and very safe residential area. You can easily reach the city centre from there. The flat it's so cozy that you can actually feel at home. Breakfast time is amazing: you help yourself choosing from a big range of food and drinks while sitting in front of a big window looking at their lovely small garden, probably with one of their cats next to you. The hosts are really kind and private so you can feel really independent. I loved my time there! And I miss their friendly cats as well. :)
I totally recommend to book there!

An open-minded, easy-going and friendly Irish guy. I know Dublin and Ireland intimately and love to share my tips with guests. I've been hosting with Airbnb for well over a year and it's been wonderful meeting people from all over the world. Guests with a profile picture and a profile description are particularly welcome :)
