    We spent 3 days with Ann and Derek and it was a wonderful experience! They were really kind and we felt at home since the beginning. We also learned a lot of things about Ireland's history and traditions so we we'll repeat for sure!!

    Anne was great. Her knowledge of bussing routes was invaluable. Her home was very welcoming. I would not hesitate to recommend her house to any of my acquaintances travelling to Dublin.

    Ann and Derrick live in a great location in Dublin they are very knowledge of the area and very helpful in helping me get around the city easily. They live in a safe area and you can walk a short to distant to be near most tourist attractions. I would highly recommend this stay as the house is very nice, clean and if your looking for nice, honest Irish folk it's here. They are affordable and I have learned a lot of Irish heritage from my short time. Thank you again for everything I am happy to say I have met friends that treated me like family during my stay. Great experience with them made traveling myself so easy.

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?

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.
