I found House Sitting Ireland through online searches. Aside from my cat Astro, I live alone so it was really important I found someone I could trust with Astro most importantly, but also the house.
Shay came and met me at home probably a month before the intended booking. He stayed for a cuppa and to meet with Astro. I watched the two of them together and I got a sense for Shay. He gave me the confidence to go ahead and make the booking.
Shay was very thorough even before he arrived – he sent me a form to fill out, made the costing clear as a bell, and was highly professional. He then actually met me during work to pick up the keys.
I know the experience went really well for Astro as he can be a highly tense cat, so I know immediately upon return whether he has been upset or not. Astro had clearly been brushed regularly, he was content and if anything I worried if perhaps he’d enjoyed Shay’s company more than my own!
Shay left the house in meticulous order. It was as if he hadn’t been. And I have the added bonus of seeing Astro in some of Shay’s wonderful photos.
Particularly if you are a single female worried about strangers looking after your pet and staying in your home, then I can put you at ease and highly recommend Shay as trust-worthy, reliable, and responsible and genuinely caring. – Brooke, Ballsbridge
