Pat and Carol seem like old friends. I stayed with them last year and when our plans took us to Dublin this summer, I booked them first and planned other things around their availability. Both times I enjoyed their hospitality and relaxed friendliness. Not only is their home lovely, but they have lots of ideas for things to do in Dublin and are always willing to help with checking the internet (Carol's speciality) or ordering a cab (Pat's such a gentleman). I would not consider staying anywhere else in Dublin.
