About the Homestay
Hi my name is Joanne, but my friends & family call me JoJo for short. I'm an out going lady & love to chat to students from different countries. I have been taking students into my home from all over & I have enjoyed their company & listening to them about their lifes back in their own country. I like to have the pleasure to get to know students & have them stay with me & feel relaxed & at home with me.
I have a lovely home in a quiet area of Dublin. Its clean & safe to be in. I like to have the pleasure to share my home with many students that are coming to Dublin to study, work or just holiday.
In my spare time I work in an office in the city. I like doing light excerises, pilates & swimming. I also catching up with the latest series & movies on Netflix.

I highly recommend Joanne’s home. The house is very clean, beautiful and you have all of you need. The internet conexión is perfect, her house is in a lovely quiet area and also you have many shops near and wonderful parks. She was really kind and thoughtful with me every day and even she bought a Christmas present for me, she was always willing to help me. It is very easy to talk to her, she is patient and speaks slowly so you can understand her very well. I recommend everyone to stay with Joanne, she is cheerful and generous. I wish you the best and I hope to see you again. I am very grateful, thanks for everything!
Joanne made my first experience living abroad a dream. I stayed for almost seven months, during which she helped me every time I had a question or was feeling nervous about uni. She was happy to chat with me and the other girls I lived with, even if she was tired after work! She was always interested in knowing things about Spain and my culture, which made me feel even more at home. She would sometimes buy some food and sweets for us, and even bought a little birthay cake for me. I am very grateful that I got to live with such a caring person, who helped make my stay in Dublin one I will never forget.
Hope to see you soon! Take care,
I have no words to thank Joanne for the way she took me into her home and how well she looked after me. At first, I was only going to stay for 3 months, but I felt so comfortable, so welcome and so safe that I decided to stay for a little over a year. I guess this fact says more than a thousand words.
Joanne is a very familiar, friendly person and she always cared about me. She always gave me advice and encouragement when I came home from work in a bad mood. She always helped me with my cycling problems haha. On one occasion my bike was stolen and she took me to my work and also insisted on repeated occasions to pick me up and take me to work for several days. On another occasion, my bicycle wheel got punctured and when I returned home Joanne had bought the material for me and had already repaired it.
I spent the entire quarantine in this house and I am more than grateful that this was the case. The familiarity, the security, the warmth, the comfort were essential at this time and I was lucky enough to be in this house when I know how difficult it is to find something like this in Dublin.
I was also lucky enough to live with another amazing girl and both she and Joanne made me feel at home and I know I will never find anything like this again in Dublin.
Definitely a place you can call home and of course I recommend everyone to stay with Joanne.
Joanne was very kindly with me. She welcomed me perfectly when I arrived in Dublin for the first time.
My first experience abroad was really good and she taked care of me!
I wish you the best and I hope to see you one day.
Take care of you Joanne!
Joanne is the most welcoming and heartwarming host I could imagine. In my three months staying with her, we had the lovliest conversations and, while she gives you a lot of privacy and freedom around the house, it was always easy to talk to her when something came up I needed help or advice with. Thanks for everything!
She is such a sweet and kind person. The house is so nice and there is a big mart near. I want to go back.
I had the best experience staying with Joanne. She’s amazing, she’s very caring and my talks with her were amazing. I struggled a bit by being away from home but it was honestly really nice to go home to her and having her ask about my day and my trips. Her house is beautiful, you can have your privacy, the space for you to cook, and even supermarkets really close to the house. I asked a lot of questions, and she was willing to help me and respond every time!! She’s just really lovely and sharing her home is a great experience.
I would highly recommend Joanne’s home to stay. I had an amazing time in this house and she was really helpful and kind with me every time. I am really gonna miss her and our talking.
Thank you so much,
Wish you the best.
I stayed at Joanne's house about 2 month and had a very good experience. Joanne is very friendly, she really cared about me and was always available if I had any question. We talked a lot together and I had the chance to meet some of her friends and family who were also lovely!
The house was clean and my room spacious with a lot of place to keep my stuff. It is situated in a quiet area, near a shopping center and also not that far from the city center.
I'm very thankful and hope to see her soon! :D
My stay was really amazing. Joanne is a very kind woman, she is also talkative and friendly so I felt very confortable in her house.
The room I rent was very cute and quite big. The neighborhood was very quiet and furthermore, the house is near a shopping center and bus stop.
I don't regret spending time with Joanne and I hope to visit her soon.
