We are two working professionals in Dublin and living in Lucan. Our home is a modern 3 bed semi in a quiet suburban housing estate, a few minutes walk from a well serviced bus route to the city. Please note bus fare to the city is €2.70 with a Leap card or approx 3.30 for an individual fare and takes about 35/40 minutes. We're a few minutes walk from coffee shops and a local library and about 12 minutes from Lucan village, which boasts a thatched roofed pub and several restaurants/pubs and shops. We're a short bus ride from busy Liffey Valley shopping centre/cinemas. We love dogs and animals generally and have a friendly Shih Tzu, Rubi who we like walking. There are some nice walks locally by the river Liffey and there's a running track in the nearby park. We have a bedroom with sole use of a bathroom. The bed is a small double for single use.

    It was a pleasure to host Terrence and his partner. They were respectful polite guests. I just wish the weather had been better but unfortunately we couldn't do anything about that! I'm delighted they enjoyed their stay.

    The host are very kind. They are tyring to help and make you really feel comfortable the whole time. There is also a little dog who is slightly spoiled but harmless and brisk. The room and the separate bathroom were clean and cosy. The accommondation is easy to reach by bus. The breakfast is good, you have got the choice between toast or cereal and the possibility to get coffee, tea and juice. Only the shower could be a little bit stronger. It was a nice stay and I am appreciative for their hospitality.

    Die Gastgeber sind sehr nett und versuchen bei Fragen und Problemen zu helfen. Der kleine Hund kann etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig sein, ist jedoch harmlos. Das Schlafzimmer und das separate Badezimmer waren sauber, so wie der Rest des Hauses auch. Die Unterkunft ist einfach per Bus zu erreichen. Allerdings könnte die Dusche etwas mehr Kraft vertragen. Gegen das Frühstück gibt es auch nichts einzuwenden, wie beschrieben handelt es sich um ein leichtes Frühstück mit der Auswahl zwischen Toast und Müsli sowie Kaffee, Tee und Orangensaft. Im großen und ganzen war es ein netter Aufenthalt und vor allem preislich betrachtet gut.

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.

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.
