I'm from Dublin.
Brian is simply the perfect guest. Not only he communicated regularly before his arrival, he also made sure to send me an email to confirm his flight was on time, called me when he landed and called me upon entering the taxi to get here. Communication was just amazing.
While he must have been tired from the trip, upon his arrival I was greeted with a large smile and good mood. Him and his partner automatically made me feel comfortable having them stay over.
They took care of the place better than my own family does. Not only did they clean the bathroom and vacuumed the floor, they also put the washing machine to run so when I arrived I only had to put the towels to dry! The apartment looked like when I left it to them - spotless clean!
Fantastic guest, great person. I highly recommend you to meet and host Brian if you have the chance. He is a very trusting, responsible and caring guest.
