It has been very nice to stay with Orla and her family these days, they are very nice and they make you feel very comfortable. Thank you very much Orla, I will be back!
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.
Five hearts are not enough to rate my stay with Orla and her family. These people are so nice and friendly that I was pretty much unhappy when I had to leave them. Orla and the family made me feel as if I were a family member. With them I really felt at home.
It was a wonderful experience I have chosen the best host family they help you in everything and made me enjoy a good living thanks.

My visit coincided with an unplanned visit to hospital for my host, so I did not meet her. I was greeted instead by the nanny who was very efficient and friendly. My first floor single room was clean and comfortable as was the ground floor bathroom I was asked to use. I had elected to stay in the single room upstairs as it was recommended for single female use.
During the night I was woken several times by the host's very young children crying, but given that their Mum was away they might have been understandably unsettled. However, given the choice another time, I would not chose to stay on the same floor as young children. With a very long drive the next day and a very early start it was not ideal. I also neglected to check the amount I was asked to pay on my departure and when I reached home I found that the amount I paid included the commission amount I had already sent to Homestay. I should have checked this through myself though and accept that this mistake could have arisen due to the unsettled situation overall.
Good room, close to citycentre.
Perfect location , I was working nearby and the stay was much more warming than a hotel stay. The room was downstairs and just right for studies. The hosts were very friendly and I would highly recommend this accommodation to all . So handy for Dublin airport and Swords.
