Welcome to our home:)
I'm Seán and I live with my 15 years old daughter and not to forget the smallest member of the family, our lovely dog.
Our home is located within walking distance of Swords town center. We are in an excellent location, close to Dublin airport and on direct bus route to the city centre, as well as 10 minutes from coastal towns of Portmarnock and Malahide.

We provide a warm welcoming home and you'll never be a stranger while staying with us.

Enjoy a relaxed breakfast on the patio if you don't mind the Irish weather!!! before heading to town. There are bars, restaurants, supermarkets and parks if you want to explore Swords. The Pavillions Centre is ideal for a spot of shopping or cinema visit. Alternatively take a stroll through the beautiful grounds of Malahide Castle, just a short bus journey away.

We know our guests like their privacy and we will leave you to enjoy your stay.
However, I am happy to chat and I'm always on hand if need it.

⫷ Big & cozy room with a double bed. *Free WI-FI, Sat TV, free unlimited tea & Coffee Facilities & A lovely garden to chill out and relax.

House Rules

Only the Homestay registered/approved guests are allowed to stay in.

Some spaces are shared - Kitchen / Bathroom / Limited Living Room Access

So long as no cleaning fee is charged, the bathroom and kitchen must be kept clean at all times. It would be highly appreciated if the guests could also maintain the cleanliness of both the room and all shared areas.

The cooking should be focused to a single simple dish done in between reasonable hours. Also, both the cooker and kitchen must be left behind in a proper clean state, tidy and in good order. In the end, it is just a matter of respect, hopefully mutual!

This is a homestay accommodation, so please do not treat my place as a B&B or hotel because it is not.

Thank you very much.

Smoking is not allowed.

    Sean a été très charmant avant et au début de notre arrivée. Il nous a beaucoup conseillé pour nos démarches sur place et ensuite sur les visites à faire pour ma fille et moi.
    Mais passé la moitié de notre séjour il y a eu un revirement d'attitude - quasi plus de contact au quotidien - ce qui a été lourd à vivre la seconde partie de notre séjour. Je pense que notre séjour de 105 nuits était beaucoup trop long.
    Quand aux prestations offertes c'etait très moyen, pas de chaise pour le bureau, tout le mobilier est usagé, la chambre est froide comme la salle de bains , d'ailleurs on m'a demandé de payer la facture d'électricité une semaine avant mon départ car je m'étais plainds du froid et qu'on m'a accusé d'avoir acheté un radiateur d'appoint ce qui n'était absolument pas le cas.. et la propreté laisse à désirer.
    Dommage car Sean est une personne très intéressante.
    Lors de mon retour début Janvier à Dublin , malgré nos 105jours passés chez lui , je n'ai eu aucune envie d'aller lui faire un petit coucou.

    Sean est un hôte formidable qui vous reçoit comme des amis de longue date.
    Nous avons pu visiter Dublin sans prendre la voiture (environ 40 minutes en bus). Nous recommandons.

    Sean offers a warm, Irish welcome! He opens his home up to whomever is staying there. He can’t do enough to make you comfortable in his home. He’s friendly, knowledgeable and it’s a pleasure to be in his company! He went out of his way, picking me up and dropping me off, and making sure my time in Swords was most enjoyable. Lastly, he listened like a (true friend)....to my “often non-stop unfiltered ramblings” when I’d eaten far too many carbohydrates....or for whatever reason I needed to express my opinions about the state of the world! I’m sure I owe him money for much needed therapy sessions-:) Thank you Sean! It was a pleasure meeting you, your son in law and son! All the Best to your family!

    Allen was an absolute pleasure to have in my home, the chat and the Craic was fantastic and the lovely review he gave was more a testimony to his generosity of his character , hopefully our paths will cross again and we will resume our lively discussions

    Sean and his daughter Cloe are very nice and social persons. Sean has entertained us with his stories, interest and love for the people and culture of his Ireland and also the world. He helped us to find the nice places in the surroundings. We enjoyed our visit with Sean, Cloe, the dog and their house in Swords very much. Thank you....

    My stay at Sean's house was very good, the room was big with a huge wardrobe, tv and everything you need. Sean was very nice and helpful at all times and I really recommend it, if I need to be in Swords again I will like to go there. Thank you very much Sean!

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

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.
