If you are looking for a less expensive stay and will be just coming in to sleep and leave early morning, you may be alright at Bernie's. It is not the place if you plan on staying to see the sights. There is nothing in Balbriggan, and the bus and train to Dublin are not cheap. Also, be aware that the shared bathroom means You will have to go into the other guest's room to use the shower. We were there 4 days, and the heat went on only one evening. The rest of the time we were cold. We tried to be considerate and stay in our room, most of the time. We didn't get as early a start each day as we would have liked since I didn't feel my best, and sleeping was not the most comfortable. At one point, Bernie called me out and told me, in a very insulting and demeaning manner that this was her home and not a hotel and that she had things to do and didn't want us there while she was gone. She said she was leaving in a half hour, so we had to hurry and leave for the day. We never experienced anything like this before in all our Airbnb travels, of which we have had many, and we've only ever had great reviews from our hosts. We are very thankful that we had 2 more days in Ireland at another Airbnb location or we would have thought Irish people were very unfriendly. We had a great stay with a wonderful host. I have reported our problem with Bernie to Airbnb, and they assured me that we were not the ones at fault and that they would address the problem.
