Everything was great except the internet

  • 4 of 5

The title says it. Simon and Vicky were excellent hosts and very responsive. They did a lot of little things like helping with automated grocery delivery that really helped. Unfortunately, the internet was problematic the entire trip. They definitely tried to fix it, but never succeeded. For us, that was very important, but if intermittent internet is fine for you(or it gets properly fixed), then you can't go wrong.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this house enormously. Everything is exactly as described. The location is wonderful. We visited the Botanic Gardens twice, and Glasnevin Cemetery-- and the gravediggers pub-- which are an easy walk away. There was plenty of room to park a car, but we mostly used the Hailo app to take taxis wherever we needed to go, although the bus service is convenient too. The kitchen and dining room and patio areas have a great flow and are very conducive to conversation. We were so happy to have the grill and the fireplace. Thank you very much!

The house was beautiful and we loved the conservatory eating area.

  • 5 of 5

Simon was great communicating. He answered any questions promptly, as well as being accommodating when we needed to stay over our checkout time to receive lost luggage. They had coffee, tea, milk, butter and scones waiting for us, which was an unexpected treat. We had 13 staying at the house and had plenty of room. Kieran, Vicky, and John were all very friendly and helpful. We appreciated their input and the information that Simon sent pre-trip. The house was fully equipped and had a great vibe. We were able to walk places and it was a short taxi ride into downtown Dublin. Staying at Glasnevin was a PERFECT start to our Ireland vacation. We highly recommend!!!
