    Elaine and Liam are great people who welcome you very warmly and help you with everything. I stayed at their home for 11 days and felt very welcome and like at home. The house and the room I stayed in was very clean and comfortable. They live in a nice and quiet area but still very close to the city (5 min walk to the bus station and approx. 20-25 min to the city with the bus).

    Elaine and Liam helped me renting a car and were very helpful in organizing my trip. I enjoyed my stay and the conversations with them a lot.

    I would definitely stay there again and can recommend the stay there for anyone.

    Elaine and Liam are great hosts. They make you feel at home right away. We were a family of 4 and stayed at the room detached from the house. It is comfortable and spacious. The only drawback is that you need to go into the house to take a shower. The place is located in a suburban area and you need to take a 10 min walk + 30 min bus ride to get to the city center. If you are on a tight budget, this is definitely a nice option.

    Elaine is a nice and friendly person. She agreed to host a friend Peter as a favour as I was unable to host him on the dates requested. Peter told me after his visit to Ireland that he had a wonderful experience at Elaine's home. I would highly recommend Elaine in the future.

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.
