About the Homestay

I live in a beautiful residential leafy suburb in Rathfarnham with my husband Sean.

Our house is a semi detached with large garden and patio. We enjoy both the proximity of the city centre which is just forty minutes by public transport and the beautiful picturesque Dublin mountains.

Local amenities include Rathfarnham Castle, the famous Johnny Fox's Pub and restaurant, Marley Park bus, coffee shops, pubs and local places of interest too many to mention.

We have a beautiful entrance hall with downstairs w/c, large lounge/sitting-room with gas fire, spacious dining room, large fitted kitchen. Upstairs we have two large double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a large single bedroom, the double bedrooms can also have an extra bed if required (supplement €9.00 per night). We also have a family bathroom which includes a bath & Shower and downstairs w/c which can also be used by of our guests.

Sean and I welcome guests from all over the world and enjoy the social interaction of their stay, particularly during the evening meal.

We have hosted students of all nationalities for the past number of years. We enjoy this very much and we find it both stimulating interesting and educational.

In the summertime, we like to BBQ outdoors and enjoy our beautiful garden.

    My stay with Maura and Sean deserves more than five hearts. They are a lovely and amazing couple. They are always willing to help, with the best of their smiles and they're always up for a good conversation and a cup of tea! I absolutely recommend this host!

    I've just moved out the wonderful house of Maura and Sean.
    They both gave me a unforgettable memories.

    I spent a comfortable time in my cosy single room.
    They always asked me how I'm doing.
    They cared about me as a relatives.

    I prefer quiet atmosphere cause I'm a student and the house was 100% suit me.

    Now I'm staying in apartment with my friends but hopely gonna have a cup of coffee with Maura and Sean when we have a time.

    If you stay with the lovely husband and wife, you will gonna never regret about it.

    Had a very pleasant four day stay in Maura and Sean’s home. Their house is very clean, tidy and spacious and they are very friendly hosts. The area is very quiet and the Dublin Mountains and the beautiful Marlay Park are close by. If you’re relying on public transport during your stay, the bus service to Dublin City Center is frequent but check the Bus Timetable.

    Sean and Maura are the best couple I have in a long long time. They are kind and friendly people and have a lovely house to live in. They helped me in everything I needed while I was looking for a job and accomodation in Ireland. The bus line 15b stops so close to their house and it is well connected. I hope you all the best in life, for me they have been as my parents here in Ireland. It was like being at home. Thank you very much and we are meeting when I was in Dublin.
