We live in a large 4 bedroom contemporary modern home, a large extension and renovation took place with completion in December 2014.

We have excellent living and kitchen quarters downstairs, plenty of privacy for anyone, excellent outdoor garden to relax and enjoy. Large shower/bathroom upstairs.

Guests will be able to make use of their own living area with a TV.

We have a cleaner who comes once a week so the home is always spotless.

There is a lovely back garden which gets sunlight throughout the day.

We offer a quiet, peaceful, tranquil place for any guests who wish to book with us.

However please note unfortunately we do not host couples or partners in the same room.

We are a very active and outdoorsy couple, we love to go hiking and walking. We are lucky to live at the foot of the Dublin Mountains, and we make the most of this location to take walks and hikes into Wicklow and the surrounding areas.

We are in a fantastic and extremely well-connected location, with plenty of amenities in the area, and excellent public transport.

The Leopardstown Luas stop is just 100 metres from our home.

We are about 27 minutes away from Stephen's Green in Dublin city centre by Luas,
From there, you can walk to Trinity College Dublin (TCD), DIT campuses, and many English language colleges that are in the city centre.

There are frequent and regular buses to UCD (University College Dublin) which is about 35 minutes away.

We are 15 minutes away from Dundrum shopping centre (Ireland's largest shopping centre).

The brand new Samuel Beckett sports and leisure centre is just an 8-minute walk from our home.

We are 15 minutes away from Dun Laoghaire, a beautiful spot on the Irish coast, and about a 35 minute drive away from Britta's Bay, a picturesque Irish beach in county Wicklow.

Marley Park is 10 minutes away by car, or 25 minutes by bike.

We're looking forward to hearing from you!

    Brian and Paula are fantastic and outstandingly friendly persons. They are very welcoming and you can have great talks and lots of fun with them. When I talked to them for the first time after I entered their attractive house, I immediately felt almost like at home. I am so grateful for their hospitality and enjoyed my two months with them every single day.

    The location is perfect. Within five minute walking distance, you have a big supermarket (Dunnes Store), a small supermarket (Spar), a chipper (San Marino's), Domino's Pizza, a pub (The Gallops), the Luas station (30 minutes to Dublin city center), a bus stop (30 minutes to Dún Laoghaire, a beautiful harbor city) and within twenty minutes by foot, you can find an entire retail park with an Ikea, McDonald's, KFC, TK Maxx etc. The neighborhood is quiet and comfortable.

    All in all, I recommend Brian and Paula as hosts, and especially as humans, for everyone who would like to have a lovely, marvelous stay in Dublin. You won't regret it and you will find two new friends.

    Thank you!

    I spent two months at Bian and Paula's house. In fact, after just two days I felt like we had known each other for a long time. Brian and Paula create a relaxed, cheerful and family atmosphere at home, they are always happy to talk, advise, help as needed and they do not do it for the show. They ARE like that. Open to other people, they like to talk but also to listen. They do not impose themselves on others, so if someone wants to have an evening in his own company, they can have it without a problem. Besides, the house was arranged so that even in the common space, on the ground floor, you can find privacy and room only for yourself.
    In conclusion, I felt at home.
    A few words about the house itself. Well, the description that Brian gave on the Homestay's web site and the pictures he inserted correspond and agree to reality in 100%. Shopping center, local pub, luas within 3-5 minutes on foot. Buses (seashore, Dublin mountains) 10-15 minutes, and the whole neighborhood perfect for afternoon and evening walks.
    Brian, Paula, thank you again for the perfect stay, for joint trips to the mountains, conversations, time spent together and the whole good energy! :)
    Cheers!
    Peter

    A simple review is not enough to thank Paula and Brian for their hospitality!
    They are the most amazing hosts you could have here in Dublin, so welcoming and caring!

    Their house is lovely, spacious, very clean, and everybody has their own private space. I am sad to leave them but in the same time very happy I had the opportunity to meet them. They definitely gave a very positive turn to my Irish experience!

    Brian and his wife Paula have been the greatest hosts that I had the pleasure to stay with. They are super friendly, super helpful and have a great bright and clean place. I have no hesitation recommending Brian's home for a short or long stay and would be happy to stay there again any time!

    A wonderful place and extremely friendly hosts. The house was completely renovated a few years ago and rebuilt in a modern style with a spacious and bright living room. Very clean and tidy, you can have your own privacy if you want and hosts will give you all the info about great places to visit and what to do in Ireland. Thumbs up it definitely deserves five stars!
