We live in a small private estate in Dublin 11 ina 4-bedroom terraced house. We have 2 grown up children and six grandchildren. So we make for a close-knit family with the laughter and sound of children always around.

We are in a great location and served well by public transport.

The bus service is less than 2 minutes walk from our home, and approx 30 minutes to Dublin City Center.

We are the perfect choice for student accommodation, as we are very close to a number of great universities.

DCU (Dublin City University) is a 30-minute walk away. There is also a bus service that will bring you to DCU.

We are also close to the DCU All Hallows Campus, which can be reached by bus.

DCU Saint Patrick's College campus is very close, and can be reached by bus in about 30 minutes, or in about 45 minutes on foot.

Marino Institue of Education on Griffith Avenue is about a 50-minute walk away.

There are plenty of parks in the area, and we are lucky to be close to the National Botanic Garden, and the Glasnevin Cemetery.

    Absolutely lovely, family orientated people! I stayed with Kathleen and John for 3 night's and never once felt out of place or uncomfortable. The room was immaculate and the house was also. They left me to get on with things and were always welcoming if I was unsure of something or had a question. John is a fan of golf and definitely the type of guy I would enjoy playing a round with! Bus service to city centre was quick and only 25 mins away. Definitely worth the stay!

    Der Aufenthalt bei Kathleen und John war toll. Sehr liebe, freundliche und hilfsbereite Menschen, die uns auch einige Tipps für unsere Sightseeingtouren gegeben haben und uns auch immer bei den Busverbindungen behilflich waren.

    I really enjoyed staying with Kathleen and John. They are lovely people and very helpful. Whenever I came home, they would have time for a chat. John knows a great deal about computers and could sort out any issues I had with my laptop and printer. Kathleen's cooking was very good too. I really loved her dinners. I also got to know their little grandchildren, who often came to see them. They had some Italian students staying with them as well. I enjoyed talking to them as I'm also studying Italian in Austria. To sum it all up, staying with this host family was a real pleasure! Highly recommended!

    My 8 year old daughter and I stayed at the Attic with en suite bathroom. During our entire time we felt comfortable and really enjoyed our stay. Kathleen and John were always helpful, easy to talk to and super friendly.
    I highly recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting Dublin.
