Lovely and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by the owner and not only did Paul give us a tour of the homes we rented (Sonas and Owls Nest) but he gave us a general orientation to the area, taking us in his car. We were in town for the Penn State football game at Croke Park and found it easy to take the train to Dublin and we enjoyed the area in which we were staying. Walking to the stores for pharmacy, food, and convenience meals was easy. Don't miss Malahide Castle, Malahide, and Howth, while you're there!

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the Sonas House for four nights on our recent trip to Ireland. The home is bright, cozy, well decorated, and has all the amenities you could ask for. Upon our arrival, Paul provided us with a quick tour of the place and a few local recommendations, and it was very easy to find nearby places to visit in Portmarnock and Malahide. We drove over to Howth for a day which was lovely, and we took the train down to Dublin another day which was very accessible. We'd definitely stay here again!

Bright and comfortable family house

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a family getaway for 4 adults and two young children. The house has a ton of space and lots of storage and was perfect for multi-generational travelers. Our kids could each have a bedroom which cut down on arguing and made bedtime easier. The kitchen is well-equipped for everything and it's really nice to sit and relax in the dining area. The table is large and there are lots of windows, making the most of the unreliable sun!

We also enjoyed the speakers so we could listen to our iPod music anywhere. The kids enjoyed running around in the backyard and the occasional visit from a neighborhood cat. The washing machine was very convenient for laundry and three different bathrooms helped us all get out the door in the morning.

There is a very nice grocery store about a 5 minute drive away, and a little strip mall within walking distance, with a tasty pizza restaurant, barber shop, etc. We drove to the Malahide DART station and took the train into Dublin (we parked at the castle ground parking across the street, as the DART lot was usually full). We also made several excursions into the countryside and up to Belfast, and the house was an excellent home base for the entire area.

We definitely recommend this house!

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week in this lovely house. Our holiday exceeded our expectations. The weather was wonderful. Our whole family got together to spend time with our daughter and husband who live in Dublin which meant that they could bring our grandchildren to visit every day. The house was spacious for 6 adults and 2 children, one a baby of 7 months. The garden was great to sit in after being at the beach or Phoenix Park every day. Our granddaughter loved to dance in the garden which was possible because of the speakers in the garden. The house was in very good condition when we arrived and also when we left. It was a clean, comfortable house with good facilities for cooking as we did every evening. We would certainly recommend this house to others, as it is clean, bright and airy. Portmarnock beach is lovely - we enjoyed the walk to the beach with the children and they loved playing in the sand or flying the kite. It takes about 15-20 minutes to walk to the beach, but well worth it. Malahide is about an hour's walk away but has lovely places to eat. The Pizzeria round the corner has amazing pizzas too. A great holiday. Thanks Paul.

Spacious house for the whole family

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in Portmarnock with our whole family -- my husband and I, 3 grandparents and our 3 teens/young adults. This house gave us room to spread out. We used all 5 bedrooms (one is very small but worked fine). There are a few steps getting in/out of the house, but our 80-year-old grandma managed fine. Everything was clean and Paul was super friendly and helpful getting our sons in to play a round of golf at one of the nearby courses. Since it's a beach town, this place would be especially lovely in the summer! The ocean is just a short walk away. This house is pretty convenient, close to the airport, a 25 minute DART ride to Dublin, and easy access to any northern site. We are glad we rented a car, though. The DART station and grocery store are 5-10 minutes by car, but a little far for regular walking with so many seniors in our group. Plus a car is just helpful in general in Ireland everywhere but Dublin. We had a wonderful time in Ireland. Thank you Paul for a lovely stay!

Excellent stay and incredible host

  • 4 of 5

We travelled to Ireland as a group of 8 middle 50's men from Canada. The purpose of our trip was to golf in and around Dublin.We loved our stay. It was made all the better by the hospitality of the owner of this house, Paul and his partner, who went out of their way to make us welcome and help us with everything from recommendations for meals and pubs, to actually touring us around the area, leading us to an out- of- the- way golf course on our first jet-lagged, helping us make connections for local hurling and gaelic football events and arranging and hosting a fantastic day of golf competition at a local club that will never be forgotten for the hospitality, the fellowship, the beat-down and the maple leaf pants.

Paul's 6 bedroom house was ideal for our needs with good beds and bathrooms that were comfortable and well appointed, good towels and sheets and a reasonably well equipped kitchen. There was a good TV, good lounge area with sound system and out door space when the son shone.

The location was ideal within a few minutes of the two Portmarnock courses, Malahide Golf Club and The Island Course and close to a number of other local wonders including the very challenging executive length Corballis, and within a few hours of Royal County Down and the European Club. We were close to both Dublin airport and downtown Dublin, by car or taxi. The very fun and well equipped village of Malahide was 10 minutes by car.

If ever I am in the Dublin area again, I would not hesitate to stay in this house or one of the owner's other properties and I would recommend it to other travellers, particularly golfing groups or large families.

Thanks so much Paul for making our stay so special.

Sincere thanks for your wonderful Review.
