About the Homestay
We live in a beautiful Georgian house in an area of Dublin that is loaded with character and charm. Your room is located at the back of the house so you'll have lots of privacy and as it looks onto the back garden, it's really quiet.
We are looking ideally looking for a guest who would like to stay from Sundays to Friday but we are more than happy to consider weekend stays as well.
Our neighbourhood, Rathgar, is a leafy gem of 18th century Georgian architecture just 3 miles from the heart of Dublin city centre. It's safe and minutes away from beautiful parks and canal walks. If you're arriving by air, you can take the 16 bus to within a 5 minute walk of house.
Guests will have access to our kitchen at appropriate times during the day eg breakfast, lunch and dinner. Extended periods in this space would not be in harmony with the ebb and flow of our family life, therefore not encouraged - we also spend a lot of time here and sometimes need privacy.
Interaction with guests:
We are happy to share our knowledge of Dublin with our guests. We've lived in Dublin most of our lives and know all the great places to go in the city and countryside. Once we establish what you need, we can point you in all the right directions re: site seeing spots, restaurants, pubs, clubs, shopping areas, cinemas, or even best places to go hiking.
Other things to note:
There's a little Jack Russell called Jake and a cat called Margot in the house. The house is family orientated so the general ebb and flow of our lives is part of the experience.

Clodagh is an amazing host - considerate, cultured, kind and reliable. She has the tactful ability of making you feel like you are part of the family while also allowing as much freedom and privacy as one may need. I could not have asked for a better host!
위치도 좋고 조용하고 안전한 마을과 따뜻하고 쾌적한 방이 너무 좋았습니다. (주변에 마트도 종류별로 있고 창밖 풍경도 진짜 좋아요!) 호스트 가족은 친절하고 사려깊으며 점잖은 사람들이고 강아지와 고양이도 아주 착하고 귀엽습니다. 한달간 머물면서 더블린에 집이 생긴 것 같은 기분이였어요!
I liked the location, the quiet and safe village, and the warm and pleasant room. The host family is kind, thoughtful, gentle people and dogs and cats are very kind and cute. I felt like I had a house in Dublin during staying for a month! Thank you for making me feel comfortable and free from any restrictions.
I had a wonderful time with Clodagh and her daughter : they are very warm, welcoming people, ready to give you any advice on Dublin's many attractions ! Clodagh introduced me to her friends and I remember the long, deep talks we had during dinner.
I also loved sharing the house with their affectionate dog and cat, who are truly part of the family.
I would highly recommend the stay in her beautiful, cosy house.
Such a lovely house , lovely warm people !!!
Fantastic conversations and homely atmosphere - honestly was refreshing to meet such grounded funny and genuine people :) x
I had a wonderful time staying in Clodagh´s house. Everyone in the house is very welcoming and really keen on making you feel like home!
Clodagh is a fantastic host who offered me useful advice and directions on what to do and how to move in Dublin. Her house is in a quite central area, well connected by buses to the city center, which can be reached with a short walk.
I have had delightful evenings in her lovely house with her nice daughter Rubi, her little dog and her cat. She also introduced me to friendly friends.
