    Andrew y Francis son mucho más que unos anfitriones. Establecimos contacto desde el primer momento de la reserva y, día a día, pude preparar con ellos mi estancia en Irlanda.
    Están pendientes de ti en todo momento y para cualquier cosa que necesites.
    Su casa es tu hogar en Dublín. Todo limpísimo, ordenadísimo y confortable. Se preocuparon de que no me faltara de nada para desayunar (teniendo en cuenta que yo soy vegana) Están siempre tranquilos y de buen humor.
    Fuí a Irlanda para hacer una semana de inmersión lingüística y mi sorpresa fue que, además de éso, me encontré con una "inmersión" en el corazón de una familia maravillosa.
    Os recomiendo de todo corazón hospedaros con ellos en Dublín.
    Voy a mandarles a mis hijas sin ninguna duda, porque sé que las cuidarán como si fueran suyas.

    Andrew and Francis are more than hosts. We were in touch since the beginning of my booking. Day after day I was preparing with them my stay in Ireland.
    They were so attentive to me every moment and whatever I needed here they were.
    Their house is your home in Dublin. Extremely clean, tidy and confortable.
    Andrew and Francis were caring every thing I needed for breakfast ( considering I'm vegan)
    They were always calm, warm and in a good mood.
    I went to Ireland searching a linguistic immersion but I founded more than a linguistic immersion... I experienced a marvelous family living immersion.
    I recommend you hundred percent to stay with them in Dublin.
    I'll send my daughters to their home without a doubt. I know they will take care of my daughters in any aspect.

    Cette maison au retrait des grands axes, mais à côté de tout est un petit paradis Dublinois caché aux yeux de tous.
    L’accueil est un réel plaisir et la « co-location » avec nos hôtes est indubitablement exquise, ni trop, ni trop peu.
    Andrew et Francis sont à l’écoute, mais aussi adorable, chaleureux, gentil, accueillant, généreux, toujours souriant… Autant d'adjectifs que possible. Une demande de renseignement ? Et hop, une réponse concise.
    Le seul défaut de cette maison (home stay…), est que nous n’avons pas envie de la quitter ou alors d’y revenir très rapidement.
    Nous sommes restées 12 jours avec ma mère et le temps passe à une vitesse folle, nous n’avons pas le temps de nous ennuyer, car il y a pas mal de chose à faire dans les environs.

    Nous espérons pouvoir revenir très vite !

    à bientôt,

    Sarah & Elisabeth

    This House is in a quiet area off the main road but close to everything, is a paradise hidden from the eyes of all.
    the reception is a real pleasure and the « flatsharing » with our hosts was perfectly excellent.
    Andrew & Francis are listening, but also adorable , kind, welcoming, generous, lovely, always smiling … as much adjective as possible.
    A request for information ? Off with it ! A concise answer !
    The only flaw of this house, Is that we don't want to leave… or, come back very quickly !
    We stayed 12 days with my mother, and time goes by at a speed... we don't have time to get bored ! There are a lot of things to do in the surroundings

    We hope to come back soon !

    See you soon,

    Sarah & Elisabeth

    I had a lovely stay with Andrew and Francis. They were so very kind and welcoming to me that I felt at home right away. They gave good directions to anywhere I wanted to go, and recomendations for eating and sightseeing in Dublin. The bus stop is just a couple minutes away, the Luas tram a few minutes more. I'd love to return to Dublin and stay with them again. Recommended!

    My stay with Andrew and Francis was very pleasant and comfortable! They are very personable and went above and beyond to ensure I had everything I needed and helped me with directions and getting around the city. Their home is lovely, quiet and clean, the bed was comfortable and I had my own bathroom. I would definitely stay there again, and highly recommend them! Thank you, Andrew & Francis!!

    Our stay with Andrew and Francis was wonderful - friendly, considerate and engaging. We enjoyed being "at home" from the start and felt very welcome. We heartily recommend anyone to spend time with them and experience true Dublin hospitality. The location is very convenient for public transport, the area is quiet and safe, and the accommodation is spotlessly clean and very well appointed! Five star hosts!

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) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

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.
