Guestbook comments from the owner

We booked the apartment for 1 week, however, we were enjoying ourselves so much, we decided to make it 9 days, we used the decking area in the evenings for drinks while enjoyting the wonderful views. Valerie, our hostess couldent have been more helpful, we will be back again next year!

Beautiful with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Loved every minute of our stay here, our first visit to Ireland & we were not disappointed. The apartment was lovely but the view and Valerie are what made it for us.

Scones, bread, milk, eggs & some fruit on arrival, and Valerie gave us lots of info on where to visit and best places to eat & again we were not disappointed. We will definitely be returning as the weather wasn’t so good but that didn’t stop us from having a great long weekend.

So nice

  • 5 of 5

First let me say Valarie was the ultimate host, she provided us with a welcome package of sacks and was there to pick us up at the train statin on several occasions (or to deliver us) when the weather was bad. The apartment was spacious,clean, and well stocked. Apartment sits right on the coast and has a great view. Skerries is a great little town plenty of places to eat and drink. Would recommend for two people.

Amazing View, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here for three days during our holiday in Ireland. We absolutely loved it. The apartment was well stocked and clean, has an amazing view and Valerie was such a wonderful hostess! We adored Skerries, it is a beautiful little coastal town. We are from the US and my husband didn't want to drive in Dublin. We were able to take a short train ride right from Skerries into Dublin for a day of walking and touring around. There is plenty to see right in and around Skerries as well as several great restaurants and a nice grocery store. Valerie was very welcoming and even had fresh scones, butter and jams waiting for us upon our arrival. We enjoyed chatting with her and appreciated it when she took the time to make sure we were aware of the (very unusual) hurricane that came through Ireland during our last day at her place. I highly recommend this apartment and Valerie!

Delightful start to Irish Trip

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed Skerries and living by the sea a few days before starting a group tour of this wonderful country. We did not have a vehicle and found everything conveniently within walking distance. Valerie kindly delivered us to the train station to get to Dublin. The apartment is well supplied and we would gladly return for a longer visit next time!

Excellent, convenient location, spacious apartment, good value

  • 5 of 5

Though Susan and I did not meet Valerie (she was having a holiday of her own in the Canary Islands), we really appreciated her well-equipped upstairs apartment and the exquisite views of the Irish Sea and Skerries village. The weather was the best we had in our three-week stay on the Emerald Isle.

As for the apartment, it is bigger than the pictures might indicate (especially the bedroom and living area), and the bathroom and kitchen are especially nice. The breeze coming through the windows is intoxicating.

Day trips by train into Dublin were easily managed, and we loved the proximity to Newgrange and the airport. Also, very good dining in Skerries...we liked the early bird menu at the Windmill and we had a rollicking good time with locals at DaVino's.

Our only quibble is that the apartment's carpet is a bit worn, but hey, who's quibbling?

Above all, Valerie's place is a good value compared to its competition.

Thank you, Dave and Valerie. We hope to visit again in two to four years.

All best,
