About the Homestay
We are a busy family of 4 and we have friendly little dog and cat. We live in the lively village of Ranelagh, just 15 mins by tram to St Stephens Green. In Ranelagh, you will find an abundance of cafes, pubs and restaurants just minutes from our home. The room we offer is a large bright room with a double bed for one or two people. There is a bathroom right next door. It is situated at the top of our house so there are stairs. We are very much a family home but we enjoy meeting new people and look forward welcoming guests to our city.

About the Area
Our house is on the south side of the city. We are a approx 40 minutes drive from Dublin Airport. We are 3 mins walk to the Luas stop (Tram) and from here you take the Green Line to the city centre. We have a bus stop nearby also which connects with the city centre. Ranelagh is a leafy suburb close to Dublin City Centre with lots of parks nearby. There are many cafes, pubs, and restaurants in the village. If you like shopping we are of course close to the city but also to Dundrum Shopping Cente which is just 15 minutes away by Luas.

Joan y Dermot tienen una preciosa casa victoriana decorada con mucho amor. Está situada en un barrio elegante no lejos del centro. La parada del lúas ( tranvía) está exactamente a cuatro minutos de su casa, eso te permite llegar al centro de una forma confortable y rápida. A ocho minutos, se encuentra la villa de Ranalagh, con unos restaurantes maravillosos, supermercados y servicios.
La habitación es amplia, luminosa y calentita. Está en el último piso lo que la hace muy independiente y privada.
La familia es realmente encantadora. Me he sentido muy agusto con ellos. Me han ayudado en todo. No podrían ser mejores.
We had a great stay with Joan and her family. The room is lovely and it was nice to have a private bathroom right next to it. The house was in a quiet residential neighbourhood. The area was great for us as close to LUAS and bus so easy to get around Dublin (we got a LEAP visitor pass). It was also within walking distance to the RDS and near to restaurants and shops. Would definitely recommend to others and would stay here again if back in Dublin.
We had a great stay, Joan is a lovely person and the house is amazing! The room is comfortable, quiet and very well furnished, the bathroom is nice as well (lots of of towels, which are always a plus :) ). The place is connected perfectly, the luas is convenient and fast.
But most importantly, Joan and her family are amazing, we really felt at home! Looking forward to come back, sooner or later :D
P.s. Sparky and Connie are the sweetest pets ever!
Joan is the perfect host in Dublin,she is talkative,gives information and is very kind. The house is in a walking distance from the highlights of Dublin,but I took the tram,which was really close to the house.The tram is convenient,as it goes in every 4-5 minutes. In 10 minutes you can reach Grafton street,the famous shopping area in the downtown,in 15,-20 minutes Trinity College,etc.
The room is on the 3rd floor,there is nothing else,just the guest room and the private bathroom,so you can feel the privacy,too. The pictures on the website are real,the bed is super comfortable,everything is clean. Joan provides towels and hair dryer,as well.
The breakfast could be chosen from a large variety of food,and the coffee was great. Greetings to your boys and pets,Joan. I was lucky to choose you,thank you for everything.
How can people be so kind? Everything here is an exception. So pretty house, so comfy room and so kind family. You feel like home because they are sincerily generous. We are very grateful for having received us in such a way. Thank you. And see you.
We really enjoyed our stay at Joan's. She is a fantastic hostess and made us feel right at home. The house is in a lovely suburb, only 2 minutes from the tram and close to a local shopping precinct. The room was brilliant...bright, clean, comfortable and with an excellent ensuite. We highly recommend it.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Very nice room, perfectly clean, comfortable bed, great shower. Joan is lovely to chat to and serves a great cup of coffee!
Joan è stata gentilissima. Accoglienza, stanza e colazione super! Posizione comodissima vicina alla fermata del tram che in poco tempo porta in centro
Joan and her family were very kind and helpful and were always open for a nice little chat. Their house and especially our room were marvellous and cosy, also it is a great neighbourhood to stay. Next time in Dublin I would surely ask to stay there again. Big recommendation!
