I live in a 3 bedroom home in Finglas with my partner and my dog Lexi. I have 2 bedrooms available for guests 1 single and 1 double room. Being very close to the city centre it's an ideal location for those wanting to experience real Dublin life students or tourists. I love cooking so am more than happy to cook dinner for you during your stay too.

    Room is only a single room that's why it's only smallish
    You were told you could use the kitchen from the first day you arrived Xmas dinner was giving plus rest of the meat you ate for nearly a week

    I spent New Year’s Eve and day in Dublin so 2 nights in the homestay. The first evening and when I arrived my host was welcoming and friendly . But after this evening I didn’t see her at all. The house was pretty cold with the heating only on on occasions. I felt the room could have been made more cosy and maybe a tv provided. The cost for these two nights was €120 which was more than usual I believe due to new year. I do think for this amount maybe breakfast could have been offered.

    The room hasn't been cleaned, well I didn't mind much the floor but the sheets...
    The bathroom is always dirty, perhaps due to other guests but still. Nearest place to eat something not fried is 20min walk away. Though it's true I haven't asked for a meal, neither was I offered one.

    Lorraine is very friendly and helpful. There is a bus 1 minute from the house that leaves downtown in about 25 minutes. If I had to say something bad it would be that there was a lack of space in the closets to leave our things.
    The rest is great!

    We booked for 30 days in Lorraine’s house but we only stayed 12 days because we really don’t feel comfortable there. We didn’t have intimacy, she called Homestay twice because we were not at home during the weekend and she wanted to have access to our room to paint all the room (yes during our booking .. ).

    Maxine stayed only 12 days because he got a apartment on a long term contract. I did call homestay because you went off for 5 days on holiday and left rubbish (a full black sack ) and there was flies that could be seen from the out side all over the bedroom window that you were staying in

    Lorraine took the money for 2 weeks but was never around to give a receipt. There was no lock on the bedroom door.I was the only guest in the house? Room had never been cleaned and I was t told that there was only cold sparsely running water in the shared basin. Had to use the electric shower for warm water.

    Host reply

    Due to your excess luggage, I gave you a larger room which I advised you had no lock on the door and you were happy with the upgrade. The plumber had been in to fix the tap, unfortunately the parts were not available at the time. This has been rectified now. Regarding the receipt, you left the homestay accommodation early, I was unable to provide you with a receipt. I have it ready for you now. If you wish, you can send me on your address and I will forward the receipt to you. Regarding the cleanliness of the room, I can confirm that I have every room professionally cleaned after each and every booking.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). 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.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
