A three bedroom house in a small friendly cul de sac. Five minutes walk to bus transport and 15 minutes walk to light rail or Dart. If you like to walk then 20minutes will take you to the seashore.I am mid way between Dublin city centre and Bray. Dun Laoghaire, Killiney & Dalkey are just a bus trip away.
I have two single rooms, one of which is ensuite. A regular front garden and large garden to the back. Internet access is available.
I'm a nurse by profession and have hosted many students over the past eight years. I have an extended family who visit regularly of all ages. However generally the house is quiet & relaxing.

Additional Info

Monday to Friday accommodation is also an option.

    Deirdre is a great host that made me feel at home. I enjoyed to be a guest in her nice, warm and clean home. The best accommodation I could have ever found, buses behind the corner and Dart a few minutes walking. Grazie mille Deirdre!

    Der Aufenthalt bei Deirdre war sehr angenehm. Ich verbrachte 3 Monate in ihren kleinen aber sehr gemütlichen Haus. Deirdre ist eine tolle Gastgeberin und stets hilfsbereit. Außerdem ist sie eine sehr gute und abwechslungsreiche Köchin. Das Haus liegt mit dem Bus ca. 25 Minuten (je nach Verkehr bis zu 50 min) von Dublin City entfernt. Ich kann einen Aufenthalt bei Deirdre nur empfehlen.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Dee's place. She is such a kind person who cares for everyone and you could talk to for hours. Breakfast was provided every morning adapted to my preferences. You can easily get to the nice city of Dun Laoghaire by foot/ bus and to Dublin with the Dart- the Dart station is nearby. If you are looking for somewhere nice to stay near Dublin city, I would always recommend to stay at her place. Thank you again for everything.

    I had a really lovely stay and it was a pleasure to meet and spend time with Deirdre. She is a gorgeous person!
    The room was nice, clean and cozy and the bathroom was vey useful.
    Deirdre provided a delicious breakfast and considered my wishes.
    The Dart-Station and bus stops are all nearby and in about 20 minutes you're in the city.
    Dun Laoghaire is worth seeing and only about 25 minutes of walking or 15 minutes by bus away.
    I really can recommend staying by Deirdre!

    Deirdre is one of the most pleasant people I've met in all my years!

    Other than that the room is perfect and clean, the area is extraordinary and calm and closest DART station is only a short walk away and train gets you to City Center in around 15 minutes.

    I firmly believe that this is the best offer you will find on Homestay (and anywhere else :-)) if you are looking for a place to stay in Dublin.

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) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). 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.
