Here is the background info on arriving on Sharon and Michael. It was an instant book, after another place feel through. Within minutes the booking was accepted and welcomed with open arms before the Ireland v France match. With the neighbours joining to watch the game we all enjoyed the highs and lows over the 90 minutes. Plenty of tea, chocolates and snacks were passed around. Bottles of bubbly were taken out in case the boys in green were victorious. Alas it wasn't to be. The craic was mighty and that was my intro. We go on so well, right from the get go.
The house is a mansion, in one of the quietest areas you could hope for. The mansion is spotless and has such a great energy, a warm inviting homely feel as if it had the memory of tales being told, by a seanchai by the fire, going back centuries. A very unique and special experience, a great find and that words cannot describe as there is little to compare the how lovely, serene, vibrant with great natural charm that leaves a lasting impression on one.
I slept so well, was happy to go about my dad. Felt revitalized and enjoyed every moment of my time. The bar has been raised so high that this review will need a Nobel laureate to put into better words.
Sharon and Micheal are uber lovely, go out of their way to help, and really are considerate, helpful and include you as if you are one of their own. Let me give the reader some more examples: lifts were given, my name was mentioned to others for my benefit, introductions were made, generous and warm invitations were made without any prompting or expectation.
There is a garden at the back, and I was welcome to help myself at any time to any of the herbs grown organically. There are 2 lovely cats that are adorable as well as full of character, carrying out adventures nearly on a daily basis.
No problems with doing laundry, using the kitchen. I was welcome
in the kitchen at all times. The bathroom was spotless, massive and had hot water on demand, consistently. Towels and shower gels were freely and readily available.
I got to enjoy a few more matches with great company. Sharon and Michael make hosting an Airbnb a joy and pull it off with great ease. There are genuine, decent and people of integrity.
Lucky are those who will have the great pleasure of being guests at theirs.
On a personal level, I found Sharon and Michael to be brilliant, on all and every topic we discussed, truly open minded as well as great living examples of fellow Irish folk. It is an honour and this review doesn't do enough justice to convey my experience.
When I arrived at theirs, I was tired but afterwards I was energized from my time. Thank you so much! For this gift I feel so blessed!
