I live in a nice residential area in Castleknock in a spacious 5 bedroom house with my husband. We have 2 small friendly dogs and a fish tank. We have a large kitchen and 2 living rooms. We have a pretty back garden with a patio and love BBQs in the summer.
Our house is close to many amenities including The Phoenix Park , The Blanchardstown Shopping Centre and a short bus ride to the National Aquatic Centre. Castleknock Village is 5 minutes on the bus and has a good selection of cafés, bars and restaurants. The bus stop is a 1 minute walk and 8 minutes walk to the train station.
We have hosted many students for the last 20 years and you are sure of a very warm and hearty welcome. I am a water colour artist and love baking and gardening. We are also a very sporty family and there are many gyms close by.

Additional Info

I can provide evening meals if required. This cost is not included in the price of your stay.

If you have the option of make a dinner, do it. The food it's gorgeous, healthy and wonderful. They make it everything easy. It was a pleasure to be their guest.

    The Irish are known for their warmth & friendliness, Cherry & family even more so! Her home was sweet and warm. She was happy to help with little bits of advice from public transportation to places to check out. I can't say enough positive about Cherry's homestay. If they're available for your booking do yourself a favor and send them an invite! If a room from Cherry's Homestay is not available on my next Dublin visit I will change my travel dates. This Homestay was a big part of why I fell in love with Ireland.

    I really can't say enough nice things about Cherry and Billy and their lovely home. They are the kindest, most accomodating hosts.

    The room was very comfortable and in such a great location! The breakfasts were absolutely grand, as were the delicious dinners. We felt so comfortable and really, really enjoyed our time in their home. If you have an opportunity to stay with this absolutely delightful family, definitely do so!!!

    13/10 would highly reccommend!!!!!

    We had a positive experience staying at Cherry for 2 weeks, a welcoming house, relaxed and safe environment. Cherry is a very kind and friendly host, always helpful with information about the city. The breakfast was delicious! The 2 dogs are very friendly and funny, and we enjoyed seeing them around. The location is great, a quiet area to come back from long walks along the busy streets of the city center.

    Cherry was absolutely lovely. She is a great host. She and her husband Bill are funny, nice and pleasant. Staying with them was a great experience. I recommend them to everyone who is coming to Dublin. It was a home away from home!

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.
