I stayed at Wendy’s house for 5 months during my internship. The room is great: clean and spacious close to the front door and with easy access to the toilet downstairs. Their family is lovely, easy-going, you can really chat with them and feel at home during your stay. It’s a great place to stay whether you’re here for work, an internship or studies. The only downsides would be that the room can get really cold during winter and the house can get noisy sometimes, but that’s to be expected since it's a family with young children. Other than that, it’s a good opportunity to stay somewhere close to Dublin (about 40 min from city centre) and close to Sandyford Business Park.
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) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
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.
