About the Homestay
We are a small busy family with a friendly trained dog. The house is mostly quiet, comfortable and bright. We are 7 minutes from the train station and 10 minutes by train to the city center, the 27A bus is at the top of the road and will bring you into the city in 10 minutes. We live near the coast and to walk there it will take 15 minutes and if you take the walk through Saint Anne's park to the seafront you won't regret it, it is a beautiful park and an enjoyable walk, great for photography!
Dublin Airport is 15 minutes by car away from the house. We are near Eastpoint business park,The infamous Rose Gardens at St Anne's park, Howth, Portmarnock and Malahide, DIT, DCU, Trinity College, UCD, and all English language schools and colleges in the city center. We live along the dart-line (train line) so easy quick access to the city, south Dublin and North county Dublin.
There is a single private room with a very comfortable single bed with an equally comfortable mattress, a wardrobe and bedside locker. The room looks out onto the large rear garden with trees and greenery, an old barrel sauna which is disconnected at the moment, a large trampoline, the back of the house is not overlooked and is private and quiet.
The LUXURY SOFA BED is in the living room where we sometimes watch tv and relax when we get a chance, this room is available for 1 person from 9pm every night to 9.30am the following morning, Monday to Friday and you can sleep on for longer on the weekends util 11am maximum! The guest can then move into the kitchen for breakfast, have a shower and check out or get ready to leave for work, college or explore the city and surrounding area. This can be available for as little as 1 night and is ideal for anyone on a quick visit to Dublin or a stop-over while waiting for a flight/ferry and also for those looking for longer stays. The room is very peaceful, comfortable and warm and ideal for studying, so students are welcome for longer stays, but please keep in mind if you are a student this is not solely YOUR room until 9pm every night.
There is a driveway you can park your car in. Our neighborhood is reasonably quiet and safe and Raheny village has shops, post office, banks, libraries where students from schools and colleges in the area study, pubs, hairdressers, pharmacies and is a 5 minute walk away. I offer transfer to and from Dublin airport for a lesser fee than a taxi as the airport bus does not stop near the house. It is the same distance from the city to my house as it is from the airport, so transfers are at the same price. If you are flying into Dublin airport late at night I recommend getting a taxi to my house because public transport stops operating around 23.20 and if you miss the last dart or bus I cannot collect you. I can collect a guest from the airport up until 8pm at the latest for a fee of fifteen euro. I work from home Monday to Friday so guests cannot hang out in the house all day on these days. There is a lot to explore no matter what the weather is like!

Ann was a super host
She cooked a delicious breakfast which I did not expect so a big thank you Ann
She has the most adorable dog.
I hope I can walk him sometime
I would highly recommend staying with Ann.
Great stay with Ann in Dublin great value ...very very nice girl so friendly...it was home away from home ..i would definitely recommend anyone visiting dublin to stay with Ann....when I arrived was offered tea..and a breakfast next morning which i wasn’t expecting ...Ann had to go out but she actually rang me to make sure everything was in place...all I can say is thank you Ann and will definitely meet again ....11 out of 10...
She was a great host-very kind and very helpful! She dropped me at the bus stop the next morning and also made a nice breakfast. I also enjoyed the company of the two beautiful dogs there.
I really enjoyed the homestay with Ann! She made time for showing me around and gave me some very good tips for visiting nice local places like portmarnock beach. The Sofa Bed is really comfortable and the sitting room is a cosy room where I felt totally well. She also asked me for my individual favour for breakfast I was satisfied every day.
I could join her on two amazing walks along the beach with her dog and we had some very interesting talks. Ann is a very open-hearted person who does make an effort to make her guests feel comfortable.
I had a great time and I would definitely recommend her homestay!
The host cancelled the booking on the day of arrival.
My stay in Dublin with Ann and her family was super! She picked me up at the airport and gave me a warm welcome.Plus they have a really cute dog:) My room was nice and comfortable. Ann told me a lot about travelling in Ireland and she always helped me. She is really lovely! Her home is close to the subway and has a good connection to the city. It is a quiet area near a beautiful parc. I would highly recommend her!
Anne is a very generous and lovely host. She made me feel like one of the family. I had the run of the kitchen whenever I wanted. The room was snug and comfortable. Her house is a short walk to the Dart train station which is two stops from the centre of Dublin takes 12 minutes. She even taxied me around when the weather was bad and actually drove me to the airport when I got my flight times wrong. I wouldn't have made it without her help. Above and beyond the call of duty. Highly recommend her.
Ann was a lovely host and very helpful. I would love to stay with her again.
Ann was a great host,enjoyed my time there.Perfect location.Would highly recommend.
