About the Homestay
We are a married couple with no children. We live in an original stone cottage in the middle of Skerries town in north county Dublin. We have a small black and white cat with a very big personality. The town is very quiet during the week but comes to life on the weekends. Antonio is from Brazil and speaks fluent Portuguese, English, Spanish and a little French.
We have a large living room and separate kitchen and dining area is very big and opens out into a small yard with a BBQ area. We are 5 minutes walk from Skerries south beach, supermarkets, restaurants, bars and harbour.
You can park outside the house on the street but there is a charge from 8am to 6pm. Free parking is available on the south beach. Free parking all day Sunday.

- Complimentary Light Breakfast
- Use of Kitchen
Please keep the noise to a minimum after 10pm. You are welcome to use the kitchen but please clean up after yourself. This is a non smoking house. The house is very old and creaky so even moving around at night can be noisey!
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
I recommend it in every way. My room was nice, spacious and clean. Antonio and Karen are very nice guys. My English was not the best, but they had patience.
Also, Skerries is a beautiful village and the house is very good located. But the most I miss is his cat. The most affectionate cat I have ever known.
