    Dame très joviale, aimable et sportive en plus, elle m'a battue au tennis ^^

    J'ai passé un merveilleux séjour chez elle.
    Elle met vraiment tout à disposition pour qu'on ne manque de rien.

    Merci encore Nicola pour ton accueil ^^

    Nicola really made me feel at home. It's a really good place to stay because there is many buses going to the city center including one running all night long. Thank you!!

    I enjoyed my stay here very much! Nicola and her children were incredibly nice and always more than willing to help me if I had any problems or questions. It's an independent house where everyone does their own thing and there are no obligations besides cleaning up after yourself. The room is lovely and the location was great too. All in all, I had a great time and I would highly recommend the room!

    Nicola was a nice person. I stayed at her home for 6 days. I had a large room and a comfortable bed. She left kindly her hair dryer for me during my stay. I was welcomed and left her home with amazing tee.
    But unfortunately, I cannot recommend this room to anyone else. There were a few things, which proves this home stay was not prepared for staying.
    Unfortunately, my room did not have key and it was very inconvenient for me.
    I was out of home most of the time, but at the weekend, before I leave the home it was quite noisy. Moreover, the room was pretty cold for me when I was at home (Mornings and evenings after 11 pm)
    I was not sure if the bathroom was private.
    Terenure is a good area, but it is not close to the city. There is just one bus near to this home.
    Thanks :)

    This is a surprising review and very disappointed nothing was ever mentioned about noise(it’s a very quiet house) The bathroom is private when guests stay and no complaint was made about heating. As Pouneh says you were out until very late each night and we don’t have heat on all night. Also I had to wait up until almost 1am to welcome you as you visited a friend on arrival in Dublin. We have had many guests with us and room locks were never an issue but I will address this and offer the option. Regarding location there are 6 busses from the village and off peak it’s 15 minutes into city. For value , location and the size of the room in Dublin I think we offer a very homely and private accommodation. We can’t always please everyone I know but I think if you have an issue in future it would be better to mentiyto homestay at the time and not give a negative review after leaving.

    I had a really lovely stay at Nicola´s place! The house is nice and comfortable and Nicola and her family helped me where they could. It was a great place to stay for three months and I could really feel at home! I am looking forward to coming back one time.

How do I book?

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.
