Welcome to our large redstone Victorian house in Dublin city the capital of The Craic, the art of life!   I hope you will have some fun in Dublin, it's really what we like to do best, part of our culture and legacy is to make the most of life. 
Our house is located in one of the coolest parts of Dublin.  It's been voted Ireland "coolest neighbourhood" and ranks 50th in Time Out Magazine to live in! Just a little north west of O'Connell Street we are 5 minutes walk to the Phoenix Park, 10 minutes from Heuston Station and 10 minutes from the Luas, everything in Dublin city is walking distance and museums and history is on the doorstep as one of Dublins oldest areas it's got heaps of character.
Stoneybatter has a great sense of community, it's full of great restaurants, cool cafes (check out Social Fabric, Wuff, and Cake Cafe) and shops and is home to the Dublin Institute of Technology. The rooms in our Victorian home are well decorated and comfortable. There is a large kitchen/dining room and a reading room to the front of the house.
We (Fiona & Liam), have lived in 'The Batter' for 18 years now. We have done a lot of travelling in the past few years and lived in Australia for the last 6 years returning August 2019. We enjoy meeting new people and expect anyone who comes to stay with us to enjoy the house as it would be their own.  We have welcomed people from all over the world, and aim to make your stay with us one to remember. Our house was built in 1863, has 3 stories, 5 bedrooms and is full of unique character. we have renovated a lot in our house so it is clean, new and welcoming. We spend a lot of our time in the kitchen, cooking and chatting, we love to learn about other cultures and countries. Our guest rooms are large with double beds, tall ceilings and large windows. We have a very spacious city garden. Being so close to the city, and it's a small city by global standards (more like a large town) there is plenty of transport options  to choose from, a bus service takes you to the city centre in minutes, or you can walk in 15/20 minutes depending on which area. A large number of shops, restaurants, bars, gyms, yoga studios, art studios and facilities are extremely close by on foot.

    I was at Fiona and Lan's house for two months and I felt at home, she helped me and advised me from the beginning and she was very patient with me and my basic English.
    Excellent location and a big, beautiful and clean house.
    I'd certainly be staying at his place again

    I stayed with Fiona and Liam for five weeks and I loved it! The Garden Room is very spacious and has lots of storage room as well. Fiona and Liam are lovely and we had a lot of great chats!

    I spent a wonderful month in Ireland living with Fiona and Liam. We had some very interesting conversations and it felt like home right away. My room (The Return) was small but very cozy and warm. I definitley would recommend this place for longer stays as well.

    I stayed with Fiona during 12 days and everything was perfect! She is really welcoming and tries to help you with everything you need. The house is very confortable and from there you can walk to many places in the city. Of course I would recommend this acommodation for everybody who come to Dublin!.

    I felt very welcomed in Fiona’s lovely home. Fiona is very kind, very helpful and provides a nice and cosy place to stay. During my stay I had nice moments chatting and sharing thoughts with Fiona, and also had the privacy to relax after my long days of my course.
    I can warmly recommend Fionas home and hope to get back again for see Dublin a bit more.

    I had a great time staying here! Fiona and Liam are really friendly and I'm grateful for the help and good advice about the places to go and how to get there. I enjoyed our conversations, it was really nice to share some stories after a day of exploring Ireland! Also the house is beautiful, comfortable and in walking distance to all the main sights of Dublin. I will definitely recommend this homestay!

    Fiona was an excellent host. The location is great and the room was very comfortable and clean. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fiona as a Homestay host.
