Myself and my partner live together in a quiet estate on the south side of Dublin with our 3 year old labradoodle who is so friendly and loves meeting new people. We are friendly, helpful, approachable and outgoing and are open for short or long term stays. We both work from home most days of the week and are more than happy to provide support and advice on how to get about Dublin, recommend best spots for food, sightseeing etc. should you want it. Guests can make use of our kitchen and laundry facilities whilst staying with us and will have their own space in the fridge and presses.

About the Area

Our house is located about ten minute walk from The Square shopping Centre on the south side of Dublin. Here you will find many shops, restaurants, takeaways and bars along with multiple bus routes that can take you all over Dublin and a local library. The red line Luas stop also starts here. We have 3 additional bus routes which are on our door step that all go directly to the city center. One of these services is a night bus service should you ever be leaving town later than 11.30pm. It drops you directly across the road from our house. We live in a safe and quiet estate which has a small complex across the road where you will find a Supervalu, Doctors, Pharmacy and a post office. Lidl is a further 5 minutes from here. There is a park nearby if your looking to get those steps in , and many coffee shops.

    I had a really great stay, the hosts are very welcoming and friendly and helped me out whenever I had any questions. You still have your privacy in your room and the hosts do not just come into your room. I would definitely recommend the rooms.

    I had the most wonderful experience while staying with David and Steph. I was there for a little over a month and they were so kind, welcoming, and helped me feel right at home; not to mention their dog George is the sweetest guy ever! David and Steph were so helpful and just so nice, I could not have asked for better. The room was clean and comfortable and I had access to everything I could possibly want or need while staying. The location was amazing, with grocery shops and all kinds of stores close by as well as a wide range of busses which gave me easy access to city center. I really loved the room, the area, the people, and, of course, George. I would highly recommend staying here and would absolutely love to come back some day:)

    Dave and Steph are incredibly welcoming! I stayed with them for three months and it really was a home away from home. They are always up for a chat and they recommended me lots of places to visit in Ireland. I couldn't have hoped for a better host family! And George is a really kind dog.
    The bedroom is spacious and there is everything you need in the kitchen. There are lots of buses that go to the city centre ; the location is really good.

    Sarah was a brilliant guest. We never had issues with her at all. She was always so tidy and kind. She went out of her way to care for our dog George and played with him when we were out. Sarah was a thoughtful woman who would always chat when we would run into each other. Would take sarah back to host in a second. All the best on your travels and keep in touch.
    Love Dave, Steph and George

    They were the friendliest and most helpful family I have met during my time in Dublin. I had a great 4 months. The room is quite comfortable and spacious. The family is very helpful and talkative.

    Steph and David are the most incredible people I met. They are always here to help you, to give you advice, to search for something for you, ...
    Their dog, George, is really lovely.
    My room was spacious and comfortable.
    If you look for accommodation, I recommend that place!

    I need a clean and quiet place to stay. This place could fit only one criteria. So, I had to move out after 3 nights of staying there. Bank transfer was accepted.

    David is friendly. Offered me tea and also gave me a flask for storing drinking water at night. Their dog is actually really quiet and friendly. He is pretty big so got somewhat scared at first. He is smart and can open doors though. Came into my room while I was working. The view from the room is beautiful.

    Thank you Kamya for your review, its unfortunate that we were not a suited match for your wants and needs which were exponential. As there is also another student accommodation in the house a quieter house was better suited given we also both work from home. We pride ourselves in our homestay and what we offer is a home away from home. We do also state on our profile we have a Goldendoodle which is a large breed of dog , having a fear of dogs I think further confirmed we were not the right match for your needs. Our dog George is so placid and friendly. Even though he spends most of his time in the kitchen if a door is left open he will wander in and say Hi. Wishing you all the best in the future , I hope you enjoy your time in Ireland.

    They're an amazing couple, very welcoming, polite and gentle. Steph always asked me how was my day or if I needed something.
    I recommend this homestay, because the room was just as the pictures, the bed is very comfortable and the desk in the room is very necessary specially if you are student.

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.

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.
