I'm surprised that many of the reviews are so positive, since that was not the experience my husband and I had. It would have been OK for a one-night stay, but we were there for our last two nights. We felt we were just renting a room. There was an adequate breakfast but the hostess did not go out of her way to impress us in any way. Some of the reviews reported that Cathy gave helpful recommendations. That was not our experience. Since this was our last two nights in Ireland, we were especially disappointed.

What a lovely home, with such a convenient location! We enjoyed our comfortable accommodations, delicious breakfasts, and most of all, our friendly and helpful hostess Cathy! She is a wealth of information about how to navigate the bus system to downtown Dublin and find our way to the Dublin airport, which truly is just 5 minutes from the house. Thank you, Cathy, for making the last two days of our trip to Ireland so pleasant!

Nice accommodations. Very close to Dublin airport which was great for our early flight. Cathy was a gracious host. Had a lovely dinner in the town of Malahide which was only a few miles away.

My two friends and I stayed with Cathy at the beginning and end or our Ireland trip. Her home was comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was tasty. It is conveniently located near the charming village of Malahide. With Cathy's help, we took successfully to the bus to and from Dublin from the stop at the end of the street. I would definitely stay at San Juan again.
