Hi, I'm Geraldine from Dublin and have lived here all my life. I love the idea of meeting new people, every one has their own story to tell. I live with my partner and our 2 teenage children and 3 grown up dogs. Our house is a detached Victorian jewel that has been the expression of my artistic flair since we moved in over 10 years ago. It is a real home and if the walls could talk, they'd have many a story to tell. Our neighbourhood is so safe and has access to so many interesting things to do in Dublin. We are a 2 minute stroll from a metro stop which takes you into the bustling centre in 20 minutes. I am open to sharing my home to like minded warriors who are also in search of true experiences that will one day become part of a catalogue of cherished memories.

Located in Churchtown, on a quiet road and just a 10 minute stroll to our local amenities which include an array of pubs and great shopping. There are 5 bedrooms in total, 2 bedrooms, a spacious living room and a large kitchen. We have two spare bicycles, which our guests are welcome to borrow during the stay

    Guys, this house is amazing! Hosts Geraldine and John always checked on me and cared so much; I could feel like they were my parents from Ireland.

    Transportation: A 2-minute walk from Green Luas station / Takes 20 minutes to reach the city center door to door.

    Double room: It is spacious with a cozy duvet, and the bathroom is also exclusively used by me. They even repaired the water pressure.

    I highly recommend this place to anyone considering accommodation. You can feel warmth and stability here.

    Love you so much, Geraldine!

    Geraldine and her family are excellent hosts and I enjoyed every day living with them. This is the most beautiful room I ever stayed, with a super cosy king-size bed and lovely decorations. Miss you all, xx

    Geraldine and her family were nice and kind, I had to stay longer and they made place for me. The house is in a nice and quiet neighborhood and there is a Luas station three minutes walking distance, so you can be at the downtown in 20 minutes.
    Thank you so much guys!
    I truly recommend to stay at Geraldine’s place.

    La maison est très grande et tous les services (cuisine, machine à laver, salle de bains, etc.) sont niquel. L’endroit est vraiment beau et les chambres sont spacieuses et ont pleins de rangements. J’ai beaucoup aimé rester avec Géraldine et sa famille se sont très accueillants et gentils !! Je les remercie du fond du cœur mon voyage a été encore mieux grâce à eux.

    It s a hidden gem in Dublin.

    Un séjour parfait chez Géraldine. Une superbe maison à 20 minutes en tram du centre de la ville. Les chambres sont spacieuses et propres comme tous les espaces communs.
    C’est une perle rare à Dublin !
