My name is Aine, married to Brian. We live in the South Dublin suburb of Rathfarnham, close to two beautiful parks - Marley Park and Pearse Park. The 16 bus is a three minute walk away and services the city centre, College of Surgeons, DBS., D.I.T., T.C.D. and Dublin Airport. U.C.D. can also be accessed by the 175 bus which is a five minute walk away. The room to rent is spacious, has a single bed, desk, chest of drawers and plenty of storage space. A modern kitchen contains all conveniences. There is a strong WiFi signal throughout the house. Our home is a comfortable place to stay and is in a very good neighbourhood.

    Aine and Brien are wonderful people and I enjoyed the whole time I lived with them. From the very beginning I felt very welcome and comfortable, practically like at home. I think that in their home I had the perfect balance between being independent and knowing that, if something happened, they would help me in any way they could. Thank you very much to both of you for the months together, the conversations and kindness. I wish you all the best and a lot of happiness:)

    Aine and Brian are a fantastic couple. They welcomed me to their home very warmly. Usually, I'm shy at the beginning with people I don't know, but Aine couldn't perceive this trait of character in me, because she makes me so comfortable in their house. I felt like at home.
    The house is perfectly clean. You have a shelf in the fridge and in the freezer. Tout have also shelves for your food. You have access to the washing machine and the kitchen whenever you want. You only share the upstairs bathroom with the other guest. The double room I occupied is perfectly clean, well appointed, very comfortable and bright.
    Aine is curious about you and interested in your life and your day. She is also very curious to learn new things from your culture.
    The house is located in a quiet residential area and very well connected with a bus stop a few meters from the house.
    The city center is easily accessible with the bus that passes near the house. There are also 2 parks right next door. There is a shopping center just 10-15minutes walk from the house, and shops for food easily accessible on foot or by bus.
    Before coming, I knew I wanted to stay in their house thanks to the good comments I had seen online, I had a good feeling and I didn't make a mistake. I highly recommend Aine and Brian, you will not be disappointed. Thanks again, both of you.

    I loved my stay at the Butler's. They are so nice, caring and always happy to talk with you about various subjects. I had an amazing time with them and laughed a lot. I can fully recommend staying with them to everyone.
    Thanks a million, Aine and Brian!

    My son and I had a lovely time at Aine's house. She made us feel at home and we particularly appreciated all her little personal attentions. The room was very comfortable and the house is situated in a quiet environment. It is very convenient if you wish to go to the city centre, walk in nearby Marley Park or go shopping ( Nutgrove and Dundrum). Now we hope to come back very soon!

    If you stay in Dublin you need to stay at Aine's house. I am in love with her and her husband, they are like parents! They helped me find a place to stay during my internships, they are lovely. I will be very grateful ever.
    Thank you for all.

    They are perfect people. It's like a mother and a father. I regret not having made a reservation for longer. If you want to make a reservation here, don't hesitate.

    It was a tremendous pleasure being hosted in this lovely family's home. Aine and Brian are a lovely and amazing couple - they are incredible and I loved chatting with them. I will miss them and I was being treated like a daughter. Thanks to them and their enjoyable and eclectic chats my English has improved. That was a marvellous experience.
