    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 indeed her family) is a very friendly, welcoming and considerate host.
    Only negative was the smaller than expected en-suite into the attic eaves so tall guests be aware.

    Thank you dear Fiona for making my first time experience with Homestay super wonderful! I consider myself happy that You were my host :) In fact the whole Murray family was super welcoming and made me feel home in their own lovely way. Besides great insider tips and great suggestions what to discover in Glasnevin and great cuddles with the doggies, Fiona Kindly always take care of me. I had access to everything: kitchen, refrigerator, the chilly fireplace and even the washing machine/dryer. Can't thank you enough caretaker and recommend to stay with you a 100%!

    Mucho Love,

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 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

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.
