I live in the country about 3 km. from Athlone which is a large midland town built on the Beautiful river shannon the largest river in Ireland. Our house is walking distance from Lough Ree which has a beautiful Yacht Club which has many sailing competitions during the Summer months. Athlone has many places of interest recently refurbished Athlone Castle, Luain Gallery a short drive to Clonmacnoise which is one of the most visited places of interest in Ireland. There are four Golf Clubs within a short distance of Athlone. I live with my husband Peter and have two adult children Yvonne is a Primary teacher working nearby and my son is doing a post~grad in IT.

    Myself & my parents stayed with Margaret during our holiday to Ireland, she was very friendly host, willing to advice on places to visit & eat. The rooms were clean & comfortable, which is always nice at the end of a busy sightseeing day. Would defiantly stay again if I visit Ireland in the future, until then best wishes and thank you for helping to find a doctor for my mum. Tina.

    Margaret is a wonderful host. We were privileged to be able to stay in her home and experience life in an Irish family home. Her attention to detail was much appreciated.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
