We have various interests and hobbies. we enjoy spending time together and invite you to be a part of that. We are big sports fans, interested in GAA, golf, and football. Day to day we like to chill and relax at home. We have a very social home, with friends visiting often.

    We had a great stay at Elaine’s home. Elaine and her husband made us feel very welcome. The accommodation was clean and lovely. For breakfast we could help ourselves, so we were free. We got useful informations from them. Also they arranged the taxi reservation to the airport. We can really recommend this accommodation.

    We are a family (3 daughters) and have had a great experince at Elaine's house. We felt like at home as they were always available to help us. The house is ten minutes far from a bus stop which drives you to the city centre in 30 minutes. Confortable room and kitchen and quiet neighbourhood very near Poppintree Park, specially interesting for runners.

    Elaine and her family were so lovely couldnt be more helpful. From opening up there home to us to bringing us to the right bus for the rds. The room was just lovely so relaxing and clean. Will definitely be booking for our next trip to Dublin as long as someone else hasnt beaten us to it. Thank you guys so much x

    Elaine and Liam are the nicest hosts I have ever encountered. My stay in Dublin was beyond pleasant thanks to not only the beauty of Ireland, but this amazing family. They go out of their way to make sure the guests are having a good time, and that really helped alleviate the fact that I was traveling alone. Do yourself a favor and book your homestay with Elaine :)

    Book with confidence!
    We received a very warm welcome by Elaine and her family. Elaine helped us out by giving us local knowledge on taxis and buses etc . Great accommodation, very clean private bungalow to the rear of a family home. All new fixtures and fittings, quality beds, bedding and pillows.... So comfy I accidentally slept in till almost 1pm. We didn't waste too much of the day tho as Elaine kindly offered to give us a lift to get us on our way.
    We saved a small fortune by choosing this accommodation over others in the city and using taxis and buses... The commute to the city centre was much easier and quicker than I expected. €2.80 on the bus to the city or about €16 in a taxi.
    I intend to return with my wife and kids at some point I the future

    Top Lage zwischen Flughafen und Dublin Innenstadt. Alles prima, wir durften uns zum Frühstück selbst in der Küche bedienen, nachdem uns alles gezeigt wurde. Als wir in die Stadt wollten, fuhr uns der Hausherr schnell zur Bushaltestelle, (10 Min. Fußweg), damit wir uns nicht verlaufen. Wir kommen gerne wieder, sollten wir in Dublin eine Unterkunft brauchen.
