I have two properties the cottage, listed here, and our own holiday home in Dublin, Dublinletfor2, which is also sometimes available to travellers
I am Irish and my husband is English. We have French grandchildren.
We have been letting Sansome House Cottage since Christmas 2005 and have very much enjoyed welcoming a huge variety of guests since then, the majority coming from North America and we have some 'old faithfuls' who have come every second year almost since we began letting. We feel particularly pleased when we have 'returners' who are now our friends. Our listing on FlipKey is relatively recent although we have been with Holiday Lettings for years (another Trip Advisor company) and have acquired most of our 40 Trip Advisor reviews through them.
When I am not seeing to the cottage I am busy in our garden. We have an extensive flower, fruit and vegetable garden and I share as much of this with my guests as possible although there is no accounting for weather and garden pests.
We have lived here in our 250 year old house, since 1979 so know the area well and can help with planning trips and advising even before you arrive for your stay. We have had people stay any length of time from 3 days to 3 months (a stay this long is only available in the winter months).
