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!
Fiona (and family... and Oscar!), THANK YOU VERY MUCH! For your affectionate advice, for your help with English, for your directions, for your quick whatsapp answers, for everything! My first experience with a host family has been a very rewarding experience, and very advisable! Nice house in a quiet place, clean and comfortable room, highly recommend!
Fiona is always cheerful and easy going and makes her guests feel at home.Nice house in a quiet area of Dublin
Fiona (and indeed her family) is a very friendly, welcoming and considerate host.
