There are 4 of us living here having an 18 year old son and 14 year old daughter. We have recently renovated our home adding 2 extra bedrooms and a second bathroom.

There are many shops right around us and the nearest shopping center is about 20 minute walk away.

I lived at Michelle’s places for 3 month. Michelle is a very nice and helpful person. She allowed my friends to visit me.
The bus station is 2 minutes away. And it’s 30 min away from the city centre.
The bed was cleaned regularly every 2 weeks. I could use the kitchen every time.
Thank you for the nice time.
I spent 2 very enjoyable months at Michelle's house, Michelle and her family being very nice and helpful. The house is located not too far from city center by bus and right next to Tesco and Lidl, so I could go buy groceries anytime. Perfect homestay :)
They are very kind and always helping me.
When I want to see The Book of Kells, she booked for me.
And location is very nice.
We can arrive just 30 minutes or less to city centre.
If you looking for accommodation in Dublin, you should stay Michelle’s house.

I had a lovely stay at Michelle's house, the whole family wad very helpful and gave me lots of tips and info on how to get around in Dublin. Definitely would recommend staying here! :)
Michelle è una donna fantastica, ci ha aiutato a scegliere le cose da vedere e le strade migliori da percorrere. È un'ottima cuoca è ci ha dato consigli utili per il nostro soggiorno in Irlanda. A lei vanno cinque cuori.
I've stayed with Michelle and her family for three months, she has been more than a host to me helping me through the whole experience of moving to a new place and not feeling away from home. I would recommend staying with them to anyone who wants a nice, quiet place and from my experience here you will find everything from a cup of tea in the morning to having a chat with someone when want to or watching the game with the family. This will be my go to when I'll come back to Dublin ( plus it's only 20 minutes by bike to Temple Bar )
