    Home away from home!! Colm and Libby make you feel like you a member of the family. They really care about their hosts. The family is so amazing. The house is beautiful and welcoming in a very peaceful and safe neighbourhood. I highly recommend Colm and Libby's homestay to anyone who is new to Dublin or anyone wishing to spend time in Dublin.

    I had a very pleasant stay with Colm and Libby. They are lovely, down-to-earth people and always ready to help. The room is nice and bright.
    I would definitely recommend staying with them!

    Colm and Libby are lovely, genuine people as well as fantastic hosts. The bedroom is spacious, super clean and I slept very well during my stay.

    I would recommend this homestay to anyone!

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.
