About the Homestay
This is my family home and I've been living here for over 25 years now. My two younger children are still living with me. I have been hosting for over 20 years and I loved every minute of it. I am in contact with lots of students that have been living with us as part of the family.
I am close to bus stop that leaves every 20 minutes to city center and close to Swords village that has plenty of shops, restaurants, shopping centers and a lovely castle. There is a lovely park within walking distance from my home. This is a quiet and relaxing area.
I provide clean towels. Bed covers and clothes are cleaned weekly. Free wifi access and TV room. I provide breakfast (continental/toast plus tea/coffee). I welcome you to my nice cozy and quiet and warm house.
We have two small dogs, Smokie & Jesse and they are in and out of the house, as part of the family:) we cannot have any more pets. Thank you for your understanding.

Very friendly family in a "at home feeling" environment! Well recommended
Veronica est une hôte chaleureuse et serviable, l'hébergement est confortable et la desserte bus optimale.
I have enjoyed my trip at Veronica's home! She was very kind and have helped me a lot! Her neighborhood is quiet and if you want to visit Dublin you won't have problems because there is a bus stop near her home and to go wherever you want!
Very good instance, Veronica and her family are very friendly.
beautiful place to stay, and the family very kind and helpful thanks
I stayed in Veronica's home for 2 weeks. I won't forget these two weeks ever. Veronica is the nicest woman ever. We get along very well. Staying at Veronica's home is my first station over 1-year stay in Ireland. I was afraid and worried about getting settled here while I am only on my own coming all the way here from the other side of the world - Hong Kong. Veronica knew my worries and she offered her all to help me. She recommended great places for me to visit, she taught me how to get to places by bus/train, she helped a lot with looking for jobs and accommodations and familiarizing myself with here, where I dont know much about. She took really good care of me and treated me like her own daughter. She made me feel secure, made me feel like home here and made me in love with Ireland. I thank God a lot that he brought me here as my very first step.
The room is cozy and I have everything I want. Bathroom and living rooms are all fine. Two brothers are nice to me. Two dogs are lovely and exciting. Bus stop to City Center only 2 mins walk and 20 mins walk to Swords downtown. Loads shops and restaurants there which provide you everything with a reasonable deal. I love the environment here in Swords a lot. It's a very quiet and relaxing area and very green. I enjoy walking somewhere on my own during the day. It is very suitable for those who come from cities and look for somewhere to relax and take a rest. It's only 10 minutes away from the airport. I took a taxi here and only spent 10 euros.
I would like to recommend Veronica's home to every of you. You will find yourself in love with here. I wanna say thanks to Veronica for everything. You will never know how important you are to me when I am alone here. I will certainly come visit you. Great thanks.
A wonderful stay. Veronica is a lovely host, caring and friendly. And Veronica is very helpful and makes your stay in Dublin and further travel so easy. It's like a 'home away from home' . The home is clean, quiet and in a great location. Veronica's homestay is to be highly recommended. After three months travelling alone in Ireland, I can certainly say that it is one of the best Homestays I stayed at. I would certainly stay there again.
Great location, clean and sunny room. Veronica is the kindest woman and my stay at her lovely home was the best! Highly recommend!!
Veronica is the kindest woman and gave me the warmest welcome ever!! A nice, sunny and clean room in a house awaited me and I felt at home straight away. Excellent location if you come from the airport or need to go there. Also very close to the lovely village Malahide and a straight bus will take you there in 20 minutes. Swords itself has a lively centre, shopping mall and beautiful park. All these within walking distance from Veronica's house. I highly recommend a stay with Veronica!! Thank you so much for all your kindness, Veronica. Staying with you was one of the highlights of my trip in Ireland!
Veronica is by far the best host I stayed with. Friendly, open, she made me feel like I was in my own home. I would definitely recommend her to everyone!
