    My experience staying with Christina in Dublin was amazing.

    This was the first time that I had used Homestay.com and was a bit apprehensive in staying with a family, as I did not know what to expect.

    My concern was unfounded, as Christina is a lovely, welcoming person and a wonderful hostess.

    At no time during my 10 days stay with Christina, did I feel any pressure to be 'part of the family'. I was free to come-and-go as I wanted, and would chat with Christina, take a walk, or have a rest, when it suited me.

    The house is in a lovely area, and easily accessible by public transport; it is so peaceful and quiet that I was able to get the rest that I needed.

    I can highly recommend a stay with Christina and would most definitely return to stay with Christina myself.

    I am very grateful to Brian and Christina. They have treated me as a member of the family. The accommodation and food is great, and the house is very tidy and clean. I spent my quarantine period at her house and I was very well. 100% recommendable.

    My experience living with Christina and her family was very good. They are very nice, friendly and they worry that you are comfortable all the time. I am a Spanish girl who has come to Ireland to work and they are already like my Irish family. I am very happy to have met them and the house is beautiful!!

    Brain and Christina and their family welcomed us into their home for 2 months. They were so kind and we willing to answer any questions for us and go out of their way to help us. They also had pets (outside the house), and it was so nice to see animals away from home! The house was nicely set up and we had our own room and bathroom and access to the kitchen whenever we needed. The surrounding area was so scenic! We were about 1 hour away from the center of Dublin using public transportation. I’d highly recommend staying here!

    My experience living with Christina and her family was perfect. I didn't expect how comfortable I felt when I was there. I went to Ireland from Spain to start a new life and they helped me as much as they could.
    The house is tidy, clean and quiet. I didn't have any problems. The room was tidy, with plenty of space and the bathroom is also clean and tidy.
    I highly recommend it.

    Christina and her family are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The bedroom has a private bathroom with a shower. Short walking distance to shops and pubs in Stepaside and the 47 and 44 buses. Luas is also within walking distance

    Christina & Brian were amazing hosts! They helped me with transportation and set me up with everything I needed during my stay. The house is clean, cozy and situated very close to the stepaside village with easy access to the city. The bedroom is comfortable, quiet and spacious. In my short time with them, I found a new family!

    Hi Isha. Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to host you and to be of any assistance we could to you. You are a really lovely person and we indeed also feel like you’re part of our Family. For anyone else wishing to host Isha I would say do not hesitate.

    Being here was incredible, the family treated me better than I could have ever expected. Very kind and lovely people. The place itself was great too, a lovely house a few minutes from the village of Stepaside and very well connected by bus and LUAS to the rest of the city. To summarize, being here has been a great experience and I recommend it to anyone coming to Dublin and wanting a place to stay.

    I stayed with the family for a week & it was the perfect homestay I needed. The room I had was plenty big enough with lots of storage. I had my own bathroom 2 strides from the bedroom. Unfortunately I didn't meet Christina but her husband & their 3 children (teenage) were very friendly & welcoming. I stayed here for a weeks work in the local area & it was perfect. I could use the kitchen when I needed & helped myself to a quick breakfast before leaving for work. On the weekend I took the bus into Dublin but you could easily explore big tourist place Powerscourt in the other direction and the countryside. If I was to be in the area again I would definitely stay with the family again.
