About the Homestay
We are only two usually at home, my son, Who is In first year College ( 18 yrs)
And I am a full-time Teacher. We both like the outdoors, keeping fit, music, and film.
We are non-smokers and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
Our area is served by buses, the Luas and Dart though we both cycle a lot also.
Blackrock is a lovely and very safe area of Dublin. We are lucky to be surrounded by expanses of water for lots of reasons: the incredible views, walks on the pier and days out at the beach. There are shopping centers, church, hospitals, pubs, restaurants and Dun Laoghaire harbor is just a walking distance away.
It has great access to public transport. The Dart ( train service) has a station at Blackrock. It is about a 2-3 minute walk from Blackrock Park. It takes 10 minutes on the Dart to get into the city center. If you're looking to go into town, take the No. 7 bus from Blackrock. It will take 20-30 minutes depending on traffic.
We hope you have a great experience staying with us:)

She is an amazing host and I loved my stay with her!! She taught me every small things about living in dublin and always made sure I am comfortable and happy! It was a great time!
It has been an absolute pleasure staying with Betty and Robert for the month. They both made me feel so welcome and relaxed. Betty is brilliant at letting you know all the local information. Blackrock is in a prime location with a quick Dart trip to central Dublin to see the sights and a short drive from Dorky and Killiney hill for a hike, with many bus routes accessible. This is by no means my last visit I will be back to see Betty again!
Elizabeth is a lovely host, the house is really great and it felt like home. I had a great stay in Dublin in this nice neighbourhood, i highly recommend it!
I enjoyed my stay with Elizabeth. She was a lovely host. It is very easy to take the bus to Dublin City and University College Dublin. Blackrock and Stillorgan villages within walking distance.
It have been a pleasure meeting Elizabeth. She was lovely with me and her house is beautiful. She is the perfect hostess.
I had the pleasure of staying with Elizabeth for one night recently in her lovely home.
Elizabeth is a very friendly and kind hostess.
Would highly recommend this homestay.
