We are a walk away from Dublin City University (DCU) and 5 minutes from the National Botanical Gardens in a leafy mature residential area of Historical Glasnevin.
We offer a warm welcome to our guests to our bright spacious sky blue attic room. It isn’t just a bedroom, we like to think of it as being your own space to relax and unwind and plan your day. We are also happy for guests to enjoy sitting in the back garden/ patio area on a sunny day.

Please note children/teenagers under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
The sunny Sky Blue room has large windows overlooking our back garden and polytunnel to the rear or the Dublin mountains to the front. There are two single beds, a sofa to relax on, a radio/CD player and a writing desk, the en-suite is small, compact and private. Hair dryer, towels and bathroom accessories are all provided.
We are happy to answer any questions and will endeavor to make your stay in Dublin as comfortable as possible.

    This is a fatalistic memory of mine, I truly have got brilliant living with localised traditions and funs, not to mention the sky blue house, I had always seen pure blue sky through the window besides the ceiling, I would cherish this experience with Fiona and her handsome dog for sure. Thank you, I will miss you.

    Fiona is hands down the luckiest host you could end up with. If you find a chance to book with her, you're bound to have the most welcoming trip. It's the coziest and most warm experiences I've had traveling!

    Fiona and her family welcomed us wonderfully into their home. The room is very comfortable, spacious and has a private bathroom which is fantastic. The house is very clean and tidy. In the morning and at the end of the day we always had the table set with variety, full of details and a little note Fiona was tireless in guiding us on our visit to Dublin, in helping us with absolutely everything and always super helpful. It was our first homestay stay and we felt we had the best experience possible! I recommend 100%

    Thank you so much, how lovely! Claudia and Numo were wonderful perfect guests to have stay in our home, tidy, friendly, kind, grateful and fun too. Great ambassadors for Lisbon because now we want to visit there! One of the best things about Homestay is the different people you meet from all around the world and we feel so lucky to have met and shared Claudia and Numo's time with them in Dublin.

    I highly recommend Fiona. She's fantastic! Really helpful and sweet!!! The house is not too far from the city center and easily accessible by bus. I would choose Fiona's house over the hostel, especially if you want to relocate. There you can spend your time peacefully and safely without worrying about the other guests of the hostel and your belongings. The price is fair and the area where the house is located is quite but close to the supermarkets and any other facilities you might need. The room has its own bathroom that is not used by the family which makes things easier. Plus Fiona is very helpful with tips about the country, Dublin city and on how to spend your time in general.
    Don't hesitate to book here. You won't regret it!

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 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

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.
