    It was fabulous! I can't describe it in a few lines because there is so much good to say, only good things.

    First of all the location of the house is really good, 5 min walk from a bus stop where bus number 16 takes you in 30 min from the centre from 6 am to 00 am non stop.
    The house is very very pleasant and very well maintained, as well as the bedrooms and the bathroom, really nothing to say we feel like at home, the neighbourhood is very quiet and safe.

    Secondly, Phillip and Sandra are wonderful people and really make a difference because they are lively, fun, entertaining, exciting. You will be able to have varied and interesting conversations and forget that you are just a guest because they are so welcoming. You will feel at home in a bath of kindness and good moods. You will be able to share long warm moments around Phillip and Sandra's wonderful meals and some beers ;)

    To summarise, I had a really great time during my stay sharing many moments with them or their families who were also very welcoming and wonderful.

    Go for it, you won't be disappointed!! Trust me

    Philip and Sandra are such great hosts. From the beginning they make you feel at home, and their house is so lovely and very cozy. They were always very helpful any time I needed anything and made everything possible for me to feel at home. I had to work from home due to the COVID pandemic and they aranged everything for me to have a personal working space, which was a very nice gesture.

    I really enjoyed my stay and my conversations with them and will really miss them. I definitely recommend them as homestay hosts!

    It felt like home! Lovely family, house, and neighborhood. Connections with bus routes 16 (downtown and airport) and 175 (University College Dublin). Sandra took good care of me.

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.
