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

    It was a fabulous experience to be at Geraldine and John's house. They are more than friendly, they helped me with everything etc.
    It was like a second family to me, I recommend you go to them with your eyes closed. On top of that the house is super well placed, you are close to everything ( tram, lidl, city centre etc )
    Thank you again for everything

    I truly enjoyed every day of my stay with Geraldine and John. They were incredibly helpful, kind and really made me feel welcome from the start. I would definitely recommend their place to anyone who wants to experience life with a fun Irish family. The location was also perfect, just a few tram stops away from the city centre.

    I can not image better hosts than Geraldine and John. It was so comfotable to stay in their house. I feel just like as home. Actually, the whole family are friendly and easy to get along with. And the position is fantastic, just beside a luas station and 20-minute walk to UCD. Thanks a lot, Geraldine and John.

    Staying with Geraldine and John was a lovely/great experience. They are very welcoming and ready to help whenever they can. The room was really cosy and the bed was very confortable.
    Furthermore, the neighbourhood is nice and safe. There is a Luas stop near the house, which is very convenient to get to the city center. There are also many shops in the area.
    In conclusion, I would definitely recommend staying with them if you visit Dublin (which is a great city btw)!! :)
