About the Homestay

I live in a beautiful Georgian red brick house in the much sought after area of Rathgar, a twenty minute walk from Dublin city centre and a stones throw away from lively Rathmines and trendy Ranelagh. I have a great affinity with people from abroad as I was brought up all over the Middle East as well as Pakistan, Kenya and Central America. I also taught English to foreign language students at one time. Currently I work locally as a psychotherapist. I live in our large house with my husband David, who works as a music film producer and my daughter Chloe who is 23 and her friend Sarah Lyn. We are a lively lot and all live busy and independent lives. The room therefore suits individuals who are busy in their own lives and do their own thing. We love both music and cooking is my passion
