I live in a leafy suburb part of Dublin with a beautiful view of the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains, with my husband Michael, our dog Brody. We have a wealth of knowledge regarding Irish history and the local area including the famous Wicklow Way which starts near our area in Marley Park. The house is set in a lovely estate, overlooking a very pretty park. We have 5 bedrooms/2 bathrooms, a large kitchen/dining room, which extends on to a large patio garden, with a comfy living room and a T.V. room. We play golf and very much enjoy music, cinema, and "the gathering of our friends'".I particularly love cooking and as I used to work as a Caterer you can be sure of having the best food in Dublin. I enjoy meeting new people and as well as baking and walking Brody , my dog, you can be assured of a very friendly welcome and help with any excursions you may have in mind....ADDITIONAL INFORMATION...........Please read carefully....

    Liz is the best of many hosts I have stayed with in Dublin. She is very kind and welcoming. Always checking on me to know I am ok. Swift at responding to my request. The house is at a very good location. Very clean and organised house with well sized rooms. Easy bus routes.

    I will surely be back anytime in Dublin. Thank you for making my stay a memorable one.

    Well what can I say, this place is exactly what it says on the tin. Liz and Michael are a fantastic couple and their house is immaculate from top to bottom. I stayed here for 4 nights while working in Dublin and had my dinner with them each evening. Liz’s cooking is amazing!!! We had quality tasty food each evening. My room was spotless with a comfortable bed and their neighborhood is so quite at nighttime time I was able to sleep well.
    Couldn’t recommend these Homestay Hosts enough and I’m looking forward to my next trip to Dublin because I’ll be booking in with Liz.
    Thanks for everything.

    Liz and Michael are amazing hosts! They went far beyond hosting duties and helped me plan out transport around Dublin, provided local advises crucial to the experience there. The house is well-organised, decorated and Liz made me feel like being at "home" from the arrival. Besides, the food and dinner-talks we had every evening made the stay more memorable.
    Thanks again for being a home to me in Dublin! I look forward to my next stay with you.

    Liz has a tidy and clean household in a nice neighbourhood.
    She is a kind and warmhearted host, we liked talking to her and her husband.
    We originally booked the triple room but ended up sleeping in three single rooms which was quite nice!
    Breakfast was very good as well!
    We hope you'll always have a full house and wish you all the best!

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.
