We live on the southside of Dublin on the foothills of the Dublin mountains with my two sons, Andrew & David . My daughter lives nearby and my other son is living in New Zealand.

Geraldine is an incredibly kind and welcoming host. Her and John are the best kind of people you can ask for and they were very helpful with me and understanding the unusual situation that I found myself in in Ireland. The house is beautiful and well placed to easily access Dublin but out and away so you can enjoy the Irish foothills and really enjoy nature too. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Geraldine and John are phenomenal hosts and I'd recommend their home to anyone looking for a nice quite house to stay in while visiting Dublin. The place is easy to find and is located near a handy SuperValue store (2 mins walk) and The Square shopping centre (20 min walk). The bus stops to and from Dublin city centre are 2 minutes away. The home itself is spotless, comfortable & warm, with everything you could wish for. The internet connection is good too, and I never had any problems with it during my 4 week stay. There's always food in the kitchen for breakfast, tea etc and enough space in the fridge for you to use. My room was spacious and light, with a huge wardrobe, a desk, and a queen size bed. Incredible value for money.
The hosts are wonderful - helpful, friendly, and will make you feel at home instantly. Had the best time there and can't wait to go back! Thanks for everything, Ger and John! xx
My stay in Geraldine´s family was fantastic!! I really felt at home. The house is lovely and the room is really big with a lot of space. She and all her family has helped me a lot. The house is very well located for going everwhere: shopping centre, park, avenues etc and the bus stop is just 4 minutes walking. I highly recomend choosing her
