Una and her family were the best hosts I could ever hoped for coming to Ireland for the first time. I stayed with them for 3 months and loved every minute of it. The house and the garden is beautifull, the room with the desk very convenient, clean and with a great bed with access to an almost private bathroom. Everyone was very helpfull, cheerful and made me feel like home. Una is a great cook as well so I recommend the half or full board option!
The location is maybe one of the best you can find. 5 min walk from Clontarf road train station, 20 min walk to Eastpoint business park, 3 stops with the train to the city center and Clontarf is one of the most beautifull and safe areas to live in Dublin close to the sea.
I fully recommend Una's home and her family. Even Lexie ( the dog) is super sweet :)
I 've missed my time there. Una give my best to everyone and thank you for everything!
I loved staying with Una and her family. Even though I only stayed for a week, they made me feel very much at home. They are very kind, helped me with anything and I would totally recommend staying with them.
The family is very welcoming! The accommodation is comfortable and pleasant.
They are very well located, about 25-35 minutes from the center by bus.
Please do not hesitate to come to their home for a few months stay.
Nice room in a quiet neighbor hood.
I had the most wonderful time with Úna and her family. They welcomed me very warmly and made me feel at home away from home for the last three months. The whole family are very kind and assisted me with any information I needed to discover Dublin.
The area around their house is very idyllic and it takes you only two minutes to the sea. Furthermore it is very easy to go to the city centre by bus, dart or foot.
The most relaxed part of any day was dinner when we all come together. Úna is an excellent cook and her gravy is absolutely grand.
If you want to have such a nice time as I had in Dublin, then this family is one of the best choices you could choose.
I am thankful for this great experience and hope we will see each other again.
