Fergal was great with communication and his home is easy to find. It's definitely just off the Greenway which takes you either to the Quay (pronounced key) or to the downtown area. The Greenway is lit up at night but still has some eerily dark places. Coming back from the Clock Tower roundabout, I felt safer walking on the sidewalks at night. His home is in a nice neighborhood and it's very quiet there and isn't even 1 mile from either the downtown or the Quay in the other direction so walking is easy.
Fergal provided a lot of useful information and even made a dinner reservation for us. I'm sure we would not have gotten a reservation without his help.
Fergal's home is clean and tidy with a shared bathroom between the two guest rooms. There's plenty of hot water, but of course the water pressure isn't what we have in the USA. Not Fergal's fault, it just is what it is in Ireland.
The room/bathroom are upstairs and the bedroom has plenty of space to put your things. There's a wardrobe for hanging clothes built-in with a dressing area and mirror and plenty of hangers too. The room itself is a bit small but there was plenty of space for us and our things.
We hadn't realized Europeans don't have flat sheets on their beds like Americans. They have a comforter with a washable duvet and a fitted sheet. Fergal provided us with a flat sheet so we weren't quite as hot. The nights start out a bit warm but cool quickly in early September. Having a sheet and comforter takes care of both temperatures.
Breakfast was juice, coffee, tea, granola cereal, yogurt, fruit, breads and jams.
We would definitely stay with Fergal again. He's a great host.
