    Gillian es una estupenda señora, nos ayudó mucho con los lugares de interés a visitar por Dublin. Incluso tuvo la amabilidad de acercarnos a mi hermana y a mí a la parada del bus 702 a Brey centro para el aeropuerto. La habitación es muy cómoda, se duerme genial, “Tara” su perrita es adorable, y si no vas con coche la parada de bus está sumamente cerca de su casa.
    Sin duda, volveremos a su casa en cuanto repitamos visita.
    Thank you Gillian so so much for all.

    Gillian was a great host! She was very helpful and friendly during our stay. The house is lovely and it was very clean. We highly recommend Gillian’s place, the location is perfect to visit Bray and Dublin thanks to the bus stop near the house.

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 250 $£€ 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.
