Migrating has never been easy, even less, when one moves to a city far far away from one's country and in the middle of a cruel pandemic. However, Therese's kindness and generosity made me feel at home from the very moment I came into her house. If there is one thing that this pandemic has taught us is the importance of people with good values: I had the immense luck of meeting Therese. Thanks to this harmonic environment I could focus both on my job and my master thesis successfully. So... if you are looking for a nice place to live during your work or study stay in Ireland, I can tell you that in Therese's house you will not find a room only, but a home.
Therese was the best host, and 175 Killester Park was the best home I could have had during my time in Dublin. And that's the thing, it really was a home. For me, it was a place of peace and comfort I could find at the end of my day. From the moment I walked in the door, I felt a welcome in the whole space. The rooms are bright and sunny, the decor is lovely, cute back garden for reading when warm, and above all the bedroom is spacious. (I really do miss waking up to the quiet and sunshine of that room!!) Guests have free reign of upstairs, common spaces and kitchen usage. The basic respect of someone's house prevails. As a student, I was looking for somewhere close to the city centre, but also close to nature for wellbeing. Killester was the perfect fit. Only 25 minutes to Trinity by bus or DART, and 25 minutes to Howth Cliff Walk. The area is safe, wonderful neighbourhood vibes and walking distance to all amenities (as well as Clontarf, the stunning St. Anne's Park and the dunes of Bull Island. Therese is there to suit any need; respectful of privacy and space, or a friendly ear to chat to. I personally fall somewhere in the middle, and by the end of my experience I have to say that I've made a lasting friend. If you're lucky, you'll become part of the Irish banter. Thanks Therese (and co.), for making my time in Dublin so memorable!
I really can't say enough nice things about Therese and her lovely home. The house is very nice and cosy. The bus stop is very close,easy to reach city center in 20 minutes and it is a quiet and safe neighborhood. Therese is really kind, a fantastic host, very welcoming, helpful and respectful of privacy. I felt as I were at home. I would recommend her to everybody. I have a great memory for this first homestay experience.
I will recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Dublin either you are a student or just looking for permanent stay as it was in my personal case . Therese is by far the perfect host for anyone who comes here, and she will make sure to make your stay as convenient and as delightful as possible.
Best part of Therese´s home is its location - quite close to city centre by either Dart or bus - being just only 10 or 15 minutes away. Her house is comfy and wellcoming.
Staying at Therese´s has been in itself an added experience in my trip to Dublin and I am extremely greatful for her support and help .
I will have a long stay in this beautiful city, and I am sure I will definitely keep in contact with Therese.
Thanks for everything and talk to you soon:)
Therese has a beautiful, comfortable and welcoming home. I stayed for about two weeks during my exams and I could not have asked for a better stay. Therese made it very homely; having access to the kitchen, a very comfortable bed and also a desk in the room! It was very easy for me to get into town on the bus, (only takes 10-15 minutes) and the dart station is also very close. Therese was so kind and helpful, a wonderful host and I would definitely return if I ever need a place to stay in Dublin again!!

Therese's home is really lovely, warm and cozy. The neighborhood is quite and safe, location is also great, with good and fast connections to the city center. There are nice parks around, the sea is also close, shops are near...The rooms have everything you need to feel comfortable. And Therese is wonderful host. Really kind and willing to help with everything you need. We had a lot of interesting talks with her. I doubt you can find better host. I would consider to come back to this place when i will be in Ireland again.
It was great have been in Therese´s house. She is very nice and helpful. The neighborhood is quiet, safe and well connected with the center. Everything was perfect. It was a great experience :D
This was one of my best experience in Dublin, I found the Therese’s Home I got there for a couple of months I’ve never felt so comfortable than I felt in her house even my bedroom was better than the room that I have in my country Also you feel the warm and kindness of Therese She is always care about you Sincerely She was like an Irish mom that always care about you We shared moments that I never forget.
Therese I want to say thanks for everything you make my days in Ireland one of my best and I never felt away from home. I hope you get lots of good thing and have a beautiful Christmas :D
Pd: you deserve more hearts but only gave 5.
It was a wonderful experience to stay with Therese for three months. I felt truly at home and Therese was always there for questions and advice. Her house is really nice and offers everything you need. Furthermore, it is quite central, you can reach the city centre of lovely Dublin within not even 20 min and the airport is also fairly close. However, the area is safe and quiet. I'd always choose to stay with Therese again!
