About the Homestay
I live in a leafy suburb part of Dublin with a beautiful view of the Dublin and Wicklow Mountains, with my husband Michael, our dog Brody. We have a wealth of knowledge regarding Irish history and the local area including the famous Wicklow Way which starts near our area in Marley Park. The house is set in a lovely estate, overlooking a very pretty park. We have 5 bedrooms/2 bathrooms, a large kitchen/dining room, which extends on to a large patio garden, with a comfy living room and a T.V. room. We play golf and very much enjoy music, cinema, and "the gathering of our friends'".I particularly love cooking and as I used to work as a Caterer you can be sure of having the best food in Dublin. I enjoy meeting new people and as well as baking and walking Brody , my dog, you can be assured of a very friendly welcome and help with any excursions you may have in mind....ADDITIONAL INFORMATION...........Please read carefully....
