    I could not have expected better from my stay with Louise and her family. They were incredibly helpful and welcoming, making me feel like I was a true member of the household. They made my stay in Dublin even more enjoyable, and for that I cannot thank them enough!

    Louise made me welcome but without any undue fuss. She and Paul were helpful with local transport and places to eat. We found a mutual interest in life in Australia.

    I was at Louise's house for a month and it was an incredible experience. I felt at home and they welcomed me as one of the family. Louise accompanied me to visit some of the most important places in Dublin and we even went on a weekend trip. His daughters are lovely and the house is very cozy. At the end of the month I did not want to return to my house, I was really comfortable, I would love to visit them again.

    I'm enthusiastic about the homestay at Louise. Louise and her family are very nice, friendly and helpful hosts. The house, the room and the outdoors are beautiful. Excellent :)

    Louise is so kind and her family is delightful. I very quickly felt like I was part of the family :) They made me feel so at home and so cared for. They are funny and helpful. The little girls are adorable. I loved learning some Gaelic words and learning about Park Runs :)

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 250 $£€ 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.
