Wake up in this luxurious location with amazing seaviews over Killiney bay, where space and peace prevail, providing pure air and connection with nature. We will welcome you in our unique family home in Dalkey/Killiney, but you will have your own space as the house is big!
Safe, quiet, residential coastal area - 15 min pleasant walk to and from the Dalkey DART station, with only 30min train commute to Dublin City Centre. You can also use our bicycles (provided you have personal insurance).

We offer 2 bright and spacious bedrooms with a sea view, sharing an independent private bathroom. Comfortable bathtub with shower screen.
One double bed and two single - ideal for a family with children or single occupancy in each bedroom for maximum comfort. Wardrobes. Wifi.
While the bedrooms would be serviced (with us providing bed linen, towels and maintainance), they are very private and totally independent as situated in a separate level in family home.
You also have full access to the top Lounge where you can relax with a cup of tea or coffee, enjoying the magnificent view over Killiney Bay - the best room in the house!
Full access to Laundry facilities.

We are a nice welcoming family, who will not intrude on your privacy, but are available if you need us! Our 2 daughters are both students (21 & 18) . We also have a cat who is limited to the ground floor and doesn't go near people.

Please bear in mind that as it is our family home, we prefer guests who tell us about themselves in their profile. Feel free to tell us your story and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have!

    Thank you for choosing to stay with us Marisa. We all really enjoyed the nice chats with you and would have loved to spend more time with you but had to cope with unplanned challenging times here and you were so accommodating! Fondest wishes from the 4 of us.

    Wonderful house, wonderful hosts.
    When we got into the house, we were amazed by its beauty and stunning views (the sea is part of the house). But then we met Ross and Elizabeth: they are the best hosts ever (and we've met lots of families in previous trips to Ireland). They are so nice, friendly, welcoming, talkative and helpful. They make you feel at home all the time. And breakfast and dinner are simply delicious! If you want to learn English, about literature, politics or the country, nothing better than a cup of coffee and a glass of beer in Elizabeth and Ross's garden. Opportunities such as these come but once in a lifetime. Don't miss it, don't miss them! We will keep fond memories of them all our life.
    Thank you Elizabeth and Ross, you were such a gift to us!! ♥️♥️♥️

    The location was wonderful with a breathtaking view on the sea. The house has all the comforts and more. Elisabeth and the family were very kind and available for every request far beyond every expectation. I warmly recommend it to everyone.

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.
