Outgoing, friendly, chatty person with great sense of humour.
Such an amazing stay with Bernie! She´s a very warm, kind and friendly host, always willing to help, definitely she makes the stay even more enjoyable. The room is very well conditioned and the bed is just AMAZING, didn't wanna leave it haha!! When I go back to Ireland I definitely will ask Bernie to stay again with her, and a huge plus, she cooks delicious!! Highly recommended host :)
I had a fantastic stay at Bernie's!
The whole house is cozy, warm, comfortable and well equipped. The room is in great condition with lovely linen, a very comfortable bed, enough storage space, quiet (as it faces the back garden) and even a view of Dublin sky - I woke up some days with the sun shining into the room (by choice - as there are also blinds that block out all light if you need to sleep in). The bathroom and kitchen are both new and nicely fitted, again with everything you need.
Bernie is a wonderful and kind hostess who made me feel welcome and at home all the time. I had 100% privacy when I wanted it and at the same time it was often really nice to have a cup of tea with Bernie or watch a tv show or two together and have some good laughs. Bernie was also really helpful in showing me exactly where all the buss stops are as well as shops in the area. She even took me shopping on a few occasions.
It took me roughly 20min to get to Trinity College each day, from the bus stop that is only 2 small blocks away. The bus stop is right next to a lovely big park, if you are someone who like to go for walks.
Next time I am in Dublin, I will be sure to book the room again. I had a really easy and hassle free time.
Thank you Bernie, it was great!!!
I spent 4 weeks in Dublin with Bernie and I had the time of my life - and Bernie played a part in it. I arrived quite exhausted and with a delay of 2 hours, but I felt completely relaxed and at home when she welcomed me. Bernie is a hearty and caring woman with a great sense of humor. You can have a lot of fun with her or just disappear into your room...she always respects your privacy. She was interested in talking to me, but she was never nosy, she never imposed on me. The perfect combination. She ist very helpful and she showed me the neighbourhood on my 2nd day, to make sure that I know the facilities.
Her clean house is situated in Ballyfermont, a quiet district of Dublin. It's a quite residential area which isn't crowded with tourists. I loved it, because I got the change to get to know the "real" Dublin. The room was clean and there is plenty of space for my stuff in a wardrobe and two cabinets with drawers.
The next supermarktes are within easy walking distance (5-10 minutes) and so are the bus stops, too. The bus 79 /79a /40 take you to the the city center within 15 minutes.
I will definately come back to Dublin and I will stay with Bernie again, as she was/is the perfect host.
Bernie is an great friend to have in your corner. She would go the extra mile to help you out. Her sense of humour in a crisis is her best quality and she has been a great friend over the past 10yrs. She has a warm comfortable home and I have been her guest on many occasions, with a warm welcome and a hearty meal. I would recommend her hospitality to anyone thinking of booking her room.
