About the Homestay
We live in Glenageary, close to Dun Laoghaire in South County Dublin. We are 5 minutes walk from Glenageary Dart Station, which makes commuting to the city a breeze! The shore of the magnificent Dublin Bay is 10 minutes walk away, with a beach and sea bathing spot, "The Forty Foot".

I loved staying with Judy and her family. They made me feel so welcome and helped me get settled moving to Ireland. The room was really comfortable and the house is in a great location!
Thanks so much! :)
Hemos pasado unos días muy agradables en su casa. Toda la familia era encantadora y se preocuparon de ayudarnos en todo lo que necesitábamos. La habitación era amplia y con mucha luz. La casa en general era muy luminosa y el jardín estaba muy cuidado. Judy es una gran cocinera y siempre era muy atenta con los niños, al igual que su marido. El Tren queda muy cerca andando por lo que te permite desplazarte fácilmente. Nos hemos sentido como en casa. Muchas gracias por todo!
