“Just spent our summer vacation in this beautiful home in Limerick, Ireland. The house is very large, can stay more than 5 people perfectly, is well equipped, and John and Helem were very helpful and friendly and gave us lots of information, we were very comfortable in your home, they took good care of our house. It is an ideal location to visit all the southwestern part of the country site. We were in Galway, Cliffs of Moher, Cork City, Blarney, also met some traditional Irish music festivals in Scarriff, tipperary, the picturesque village of Adare, and Cashel, another day we visited the Burren and all with round dolmen, and all this is possible to do day trips back home to sleep. We were also on the Ring of Kerry and Dingel with beautiful scenery. Thanks to John and Helem”
