About the Homestay
We are a South African / Irish couple who met working in Africa. We lived in East & West Africa for 2yrs before moving to the Philippines, where we ran a small boutique hotel for 3 years. We returned to Ireland in May 16. We're in our early 40’s with no kids, we love dogs but haven't been able to keep pets due to our travels.
We miss hosting people and experiencing different cultures, sharing stories and supporting people.
We have a luxury apartment with beautiful gardens and views to the Dublin mountains. The double room that we offer has a terrace/balcony with outdoor seating. The bedroom is not ensuite, but has its own private bathroom with shower and bath. The room has 2 double-sized built-in wardrobes, a long mirror & bedside cabinet.
