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.... There is a charge for extras, ie.. LUNCH.DINNER. LAUNDRY.. Deposit of €20 for house key...A new bus service has since been added to our area going to U.C.D (University College Dublin)..

    Excellent hosts, the house was very clean and comfy. We felt right at home, Liz and Michael were very friendly, helpful and forthcoming. The breakfast served was absolutely amazing. An absolute pleasure in every way. Super markets and buses driving towards Dublin City Center are also close by. We thoroughly recommend this home for everyone looking for a clean and comfy place to stay. Their dog is a real bundle of joy as well.

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.
