We live in a spacious log cabin on an acre of land. My parents have been keeping guests for the last 30 years and have loved getting to meet and host people from all over the world. Sadly, my mum passed away a few months ago but, we are trying to keep the place going since she loved doing it. In our family home there's my dad,myself(Alexandra), my sister and younger brother. We love having guests and are a sporty friendly family. We are a busy grown family who are here to help as long as you ask. Our Area is beautiful, we have lovely walkways and beaches. We are only 10 minutes from the airport. Donabate train station in a 5 minute drive away(35minute walk) and the 33 bus is a two minute walk, both will drop you to the city centre of Dublin. Swords and Malahide are the bigger towns 10 minutes drive from us too. It's a quiet area but easy to and from the city. Hopefully, when you get to stay we can help you get to see funfilled Dublin.
Ps WE are number 5 and not 5A!Please do not knock at our neighbours doors as there have been a few late comers that have woken them up. This is not ideal to keep disturbing them. We are the big wooden cabin up a long driveway with wooden gates that are always open.
Thanks! <3

    Very welcoming home with a relaxed atmosphere. The place is a little rural with easy access with the # 33 bus from the city center and or the airport. There is a cafe/ fast food a 5 minute walk away. Also if you have a car it's excellent. It was nice to have my own bathroom. Good service.

    Never met host, she not on premises. Very unpleasant guy seemed in charge. Very isolated and unbelievely noisey from about midnight, would never ever contemplate staying there again, the worst ever.

    Host reply
    Homestay Host Family Alexandra in ,

    Hello,
    This seems like a very different experience to all the guests we have had in the past, regardless if I have not been in my home or not . The “guy” that I assume you are referring to is my father? And that would be quite strange for me to be unpleasant to a guest but I will ask him about that but just hard to believe. However, maybe you caught him on an off day as he is currently grieving the death of my lovely mother. I, the host, am currently doing my masters in Medicine and I have been on placement till very late in the evening so apologies for not meeting you. As for the noise level, I wish you would have emailed me sooner as I could have addressed that and asked the other people in the house to keep noise levels down. I am sorry you are one out a numerous amount of guests who was unhappy with your stay.
    All the best.
    Alexandra

    La nostra stanza era carina piccolina ma calda ,pulita , e munita di tutto l’occorrente, compreso bagno personale. La famiglia era disponibile a qualsiasi chiarimento, e ci ha lasciati pienamente liberi tanto da vederli raramente. Uniche due cose meno positive sono state: la colazione scarsa a cui la famiglia non presta molta importanza e i mezzi. L’unico bus che passa per il centro è il 33 e purtroppo ci è capitato di rimanere a piedi sia per le festività , per la maratona che ha bloccato il centro intero e per il disservizio dei bus stessi. Se siete con la macchina è un perfetto compromesso, a piedi munitevi di pazienza.

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.
