About the Area
The house is in a quiet, peaceful yet central neighbourhood just 3km from the city centre and 15 minutes drive to the airport. Regular buses to the city centre leave from outside the house and with the extension of the new Luas line, Dublin's light rail system, Cabra is up and coming and only 20 minutes away from the heart of the city. it's a really great place to stay with lots of local amenities close by.

Luke and his family are really welcoming, you will quickly feel comfortable at their house. The house is really close to the city center on foot, and there is also a bus just in front of the house that goes to the city center within a few minutes.
It was a real pleasure staying there.
Hello, sorry my english is very bad so I write in french.
Notre séjour a été formidable ; 10 jours en couple au sein d'une famille très accueillante et très sympathique.
Logement bien situé au calme et relativement proche du centre de Dublin (nous avons tout visité à pied). Une ligne de bus passe devant la maison (ligne 37) et la navette pour l'aéroport peut être prise à Huston station (1 km à pied).
Luke ne parle pas français (Noëlle ma femme a perfectionné son anglais !) mais cela est compensé par son sens du contact et son désir d'aider et de faire découvrir la capitale.
Je recommande cette famille sans aucune hésitation.
Nos adoramos a estadia em casa de luke. Família linda, super confortável a casa, acolhimento melhor ainda. Recomendo e irei voltar de certeza.
The house was just suitable for us. We could use kitchen and two bathrooms, also breakfast was provided. There is a bus direction city centre just in front of the house, it takes no more than 10 minutes. I wish we could spend much time together with Luke & his family, couse we met just few times. The family is very nice, willing to help and to talk to you, that we appreciated so much. We really felt welcomed and accepted. We feel like we fit into their life and wish we could meet again! Best wishes Luke, Martin.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Thank you Luke
Luke et sa famille sont très accueillant et serviable et la chambre est très jolie et grande
Luke and family were really great host! They were kind and helpful and made me feel at home. I really enjoyed staying there. The location and the position of the house is good because it has the bus stop just outside and you can get to the city centre in a really short time (15-20 min). My room was great and has the right amount of space. I really appreciate the fact that it was possible to use the kitchen and to prepare meals, because I love cooking. I can only reccomend this homestay.
The room was fine, the family was very, very nice.
I mainly used the room just for sleeping and to have a room near the city centre.
Walking takes 40 minutes, bus around 15 minutes to the city.
When you want to do the same: The family has little children, who began to play early. (I stayed in the easter holidays). I could sleep anyway, but its maybe too loud for other people.
I really enjoyed the stay and again: The family was so so nice!
Great Host!!! The apartment is clean and Luke and his family are wonderful!!!
