My boyfriend and I have moved to Ireland and are going to be here for a year. We're excited to travel around Europe and make as many friends along the way.

This was our first experience with airbnb. Kate responded very fast and friendly to our enquiry and the booking was finalized quickly. We met Rio when we arrived and he showed us around the house.
Both seem to be very nice people but to be honest the place is pretty run-down. There are spider webs everywhere and you don't want to look into the fridge. The house hasn't be cleaned for a while and so has the room. There's a filthy rug covering the floor which itself is rather sticky. The linen was close to ok but we found hair in the bed which wasn't ours ... yuck.
We booked the room for 3 nights but couldn't bring ourselves to stay more than 1, so we left early the next morning without starting a debate about hygienical standards when you offer a room for money.
Sorry for this unfavourable review but it had to be said.
Kate is a really nice host, we didn't see her a lot but she made everything available for us in her house =)
Kate & her boyfriend were stellar hosts! The communication beforehand was very consistent and we actually met her at her job (super cool cafe/bar) in the center of Dublin before going home together so she could show us how to get in from the tram, in the door, etc. The apartment is very close to the tram and is just a few stops from the city center, even closer to the Jameson Distillery! She recommended several places to eat and we were were so glad we followed her advice. The bed is super cushy and comfy, she even bought brand new pillows and sheets just before we arrived. The only problem was that we enjoyed their company too much and didn't have enough time to hang out between sightseeing. ALSO they were very helpful with figuring out how to get in and out of the city/airport! Five stars for these guys!
Kate was a great guest. Very polite and respectful of the apartment. Definitely recommended.
