We are about 25 mins drive from the airport and live in a peaceful area overlooking farmlands yet we're only one mile from Lucan village which is about 20 mins walk.Lutrellstown castle and golf club are at the end of our road. We have Westmanstown golf club just around the corner and Castleknock Golf club a further 2 km. A local bus stops outside our house hourly, 7 days a week and travels to Liffey valley shopping centre and to Blanchardstown shopping centre. Castleknock college is just 10 minutes drive away from us.
We are less than 10 minutes drive to Leixlip where Intel is located, and about 15 mins drive to Maynooth. Clonee is about 10 mins away.
Blanchardstown shopping centre is about 10 mins drive and liffey valley shopping centre is about 15 mins drive in opposite direction. The local bus stops outside the house and its connects both of these shopping centres. From the local village all buses go into the city centre of Dublin and most of them stop outside Trinity College. Also from local village buses go to Leixlip where Intel is located and buses go to Maynooth.

    Through homestay, I was able to meet this family and enjoy wonderful moments with them. I was very well received by Sandra, Johnny and the whole family. Really, I had a lot of fun with them and was very happy. I would definitely like to come back more often. Thank you, Sandra, Johnny and family for the welcome.

    Staying with Sandra and Johnny was a delightful and funny time. After a certain time I felt like becoming part of the family. This was a great experience for the first time abroad.
    Everybody is communicative, sociable, and helpful, and they can give you great tips for traveling and sightseeing.
    You don't even have to wait in the rain, for the bus stop is literally at the garden wall.
    Thank you for everything, I couldn't find a better host family for my first time in Ireland.

    Sandra was such a delightful host, right from the outset, coming to the corner of the road to guide us into their section after a couple of phone calls. Very cosy beds. Chatted over leisurely breakfast, felt very welcome in her home

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.
