About the Homestay
I live in Goatstown with my husband and three kids. Ava 17, Theo 15 and Hugo 13. We have a dog called Harry. Our house is newly refurbished and cozy and very near the city.
Goatstown has benefits from a host of amenities to include a wide selection of shops, restaurants, and bars as well as being very close to University College of Dublin, UCD, at Belfield. There is also a wide range of leisure and sporting facilities in close proximity to include Deerpark and David Lloyd’s Tennis and Fitness Club. Dundrum Town Centre, Sandyford and Stillorgan villages are all close by.
Public transport facilities are well catered for with regular bus services and the local LUAS station. The N11 and M50 are also easily accessible.
For extended periods the guests will be allowed to use the kitchen. Please confirm with us first. Breakfast not included in one night stay but cafe beside us and shops.
Looking forward to hearing from you !!

My aunt and I stayed with Dympna for a few days last year when we travelled to Dublin. Dympna and her husband were lovely people. Both were super welcoming and helpful. The rooms were extremely comfortable, the house was quiet, and the location was great. The bus stop is about 20 steps from their gate, which was super convenient. It’s one bus into the city, or your can go to the train station a touch further away and take that straight to central Dublin. I highly recommend Dympna as a host.
Dympna is great! The house is beautiful!
Be aware that Goatstown is truly suburbia: quiet but no 'neighboorhood-vibe' / nightlife. Public transport gets you to the city centre in 30min.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Hôtesse très agréable, maison très propre.
Salle de bain partagée avec autres clients.
Pas de petit déjeuner servi.
Open-minded and easy-going hosting couple. Beautiful and clean bathroom and bedroom (with king-size bed), tastefully furnished. Hotel standards.
My second stay with Dympna in her lovely home. Met with a warm welcome, and free to come and go without feeling like you are intruding. Very accommodating to my change of plans - thank you for that. Bedroom and bathroom large and stylish. I am sure to return.
And Dympna is a great host, helpful and friendly!
The place was beyond our expectations, very kindly people and with a sense of humour.
Beautiful and tidy house, absolutely lovely family, perfect location within Dublin! 100% recommended! Thank you for everything it was a pleasure for us to meet you!
Lovely house. Very charming and generous hosts. Very thankful for the lift.
