    A wonderful stay.
    Set in a quiet and peaceful area of the bustling capital, this is a fine home to of stayed, with the nicest of family too. Orla and her husband William will accommodate you with any info you might require of the area, and point you in the direction of a scenic walk nearing the estuary, where the ducks and timid mute swans nest.
    Parking is secure at the house.
    Bedroom is great, spacious with the most comfortable of beds.
    And your only about 5mins drive to the airport.
    Only positive thoughts upon this homestay choice.
    Many thanks again to Orla,
    I highly recommend.

    Our stay with Orla and her family was simply great. They were all very hospitable and friendly. They did all they could to make us feel comfortable and were always at hand to solve any problem, question or demand. Their kids were also fantastic, very well mannered, playful and extrovert. It was a fantastic experience for my daughter because they played at ease the whole time. The house was clean and comfortable. We recommend this stay without a doubt. We also had great chats and lots of laugh. Thank you Orla and William we hope to see you next year.

    Muchas gracias Carolina for your kind review. It was an absolute pleasure to host you and your daughter Ines. The kids had so much fun playing with Ines whether it was on the trampoline or doing jigsaws. We will keep in touch and hope to see you again in the future. Besos Orla

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.
