I live near the city, sea and parks in the Suburb of Artane in Dublin 5. I live with my husband and three children. They are 6, 5 abd 2 years old. It is a friendly, lively house. Although it can get noisy at times, especially when the kids come home from school. They usually go to bed about 7pm and the house is quiet again. We go to bed early also, about 10pm. If you are looking for a very quiet house then maybe this is not the house for you . However If you enjoy a lively busy house where you will get a big welcome and made feel at home then this is the house for you. Our house has recently been refurbished and is modern and spacious. There are 3 bedrooms in total, 1 bathrooms and a downstairs toilet, large kitchen come dining room, sitting room and a play room. It is a 5 min walk to Malahide Road where there are many bus routes. Both myself and my husband are well travelled and love learning about different cultures. We offer privacy but we also encourage you to join us for dinner or for strolls in the park with our beautiful children. We promise a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. We prefer to host females. Please note that the price does not include an evening meal. You are more than welcome to cook in our lovely kitchen.
Please note, I can offer a substantial discount for people who do not want to use the kitchen and cooking facilities. Please discuss this with me.

    Clodagh and her family are so so lovely and friendly. Always there if you need something and so easygoing! You will for sure feel at home. If I go back to Dublin one day I will definitely book my bedroom at Clodagh’s. I spent two months at their house and It was such a great experience.
    The kids are very nice and funny, they are a bit noisy but they’re normal kids who play and fight together.
    The bedroom is lovely with a double bed and the house is very close to bus stops and there are a Lidl and Tesco 10 minutes walking from home.
    I 100% recommend it!!

    she told me to use earplug because of the noise,(actually, it was very noisy around 2:30a.m.
    ) but i could not use hair dryer at night because i can not make the noise after 9 p.m.,,,, i have to wash my clothes by my hand, I just could use the washing machine only once a week, and hard to find the place to dry, her mother told me not to use the clothes dryer, but i had to dry anyway. there were so many rules in the house, only i could get for the breakfast was bread, and cereal, milk. i had to share the bathroom with 5 people. 
    they are very busy because they have 3 children under 6 years old.

    I absolutely loved my time with Clodagh and her family! I don't think I would have survived my first few weeks in Dublin without them. Clodagh and Larry were so helpful in every way. From looking for jobs, to figuring out the bus system, to just being a supportive voice. They went above and beyond the call of duty to help with anything and everything. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for accommodations in Dublin. The home is very tidy and is in a nice location to get to City Center easily.

    Overall, I can say that I had a fantastic stay at Clodahg´s home. Her family is really nice and they made me feel at home since the first moment I steped into the house. They were always willing to help. They gave me advise about buses, places in the city, supermarkets, etc. There are three small children in the house, so it can be said that it is not a very “quiet” house, but the kids won´t bother you if you need some privacy and you always feel welcome to spend time with the family in the common areas in case you want to have some company.
    The location of the house is really good. There is a bus stop 5 minutes walking from the house which has three or four different lines of buses that can take you to Dublin city centre in 15 minutes. There is a Tesco and Lidl 5-10 minutes walking from the house. It is a safe area where you can walk around the neighbourhood without any problem.

    What an amazing homestay experience that I had with Clodagh's lovely family. They were very helpful and I enjoyed talking with them. I'm not good at English but they tried to understand what I said. Very friendly people and lovely house. I highly recommend Clodagh as they will definitely give you a great experience.

    A stay highly recommended!!! I've been one week in Clodagh's home. It's a wonderful family, and very loving.
    In the house you will have all the amenities you need for a pleasant stay.
    There is a bus stop right in front of the house, which takes you to Dublin city center in 20 minutes.
    Una estancia muy recomendada. Yo estuve una semana en casa de Clodagh. Es una familia maravillosa y super cariñosa.
    En la casa tienes todas las comodidades que necesites para tener una agradable estancia.
    Hay una parada de autobús justo en frente de la casa. El autobús 27B te deja en el centro de Dublín en 20 minutos.
    Besos a toda la familia.
