We are a family who hosted English language students people doing internships and people just travelling around Ireland to see the sights for the last 7 years.
We don't have too many rules in the house just that you respect it's a family home.
There is no curfew. Breakfast in the morning and a good home cooked meal in the evening with the family and other guests or when it suits you best. Great value for your money you won't be dissapointed.
Your room is a very comfortable single room (Size: 5.9m² (63.0 sqft). In your room you will find a TV, desk, internet access, mirror and a wardrobe. You will have access to a shared bathroom during your stay.
We live 5 minutes from the train station on the North side of Dublin. It takes 10 minutes to get to the City Centre.
It takes 10 minutes in a taxi from the Airport and we can arrange a pick up.
We have the internet and cable tv. The rooms are very clean and well kept.
We often host two- three people at a time, with some of them coming back to stay with us again.
Our home has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere about it. We ofen have our students come back and stay again.
Dublin has a vibrant nightlife and is reputedly one of Europe's most youthful cities, with an estimate of 50% of citizens being younger than 25. There are many places to eat an drink in the City Centre that we can recommend.

Debbie and John are the embodiment of hospitality - it's no wonder they've been asked to be airbnb ambassadors! My brother and I stayed with them for a week, and they were unbelievably friendly, welcoming, and accommodating. I think we'll be hard-pressed to have hosts this nice anywhere else.
We were in town for a conference and they were very understanding of our erratic schedule. They took the time to answer all the questions we had, offering to draw us little maps of where we had to go and putting us in touch with a cab driver they know. They even took an interest in what we were working on and how the conference went - it was honestly like staying with family!
And as an added bonus, it should be mentioned that besides the cereal and breakfast stuff they leave out for breakfast, they cook really wonderful dinners. They are both foodies and it would be safe to say that the recipes they put together would make Jamie Oliver proud!
All in all, a great place and great family that we can't recommend highly enough. Very comfortable stay, excellent experience.
You have been really very kind with your review. I have to say we really did enjoy having you stay you were a real pleasure to host. Especially feed. Both John and I wish you the best of luck with your venture. As i said in my review of you watch out Bill Gates the new boys are in town.
All the best,

Absolutely best place to stay in Dublin! Debbie and John are wonderful people and will make you feel like part of the family rather than just a guest. John even picked us up from the airport. The house is in a delightful neighborhood with easy access to the City Center via DART so you can enjoy the city life of Dublin while having a peaceful place to rest at night. Breakfast and dinner is also provided. DO NOT MISS DINNER! The company is excellent and the cooking is delicious. Can't think of anything that would have made our time in Dublin any better than it was staying with this wonderful family. Thank you so much! ~KaliKai & Kelsey~
I booked this place a few months ago, as it looked promising. And yes, it's a fantastic atmosphere all the time. You feel yourself as an acquaintance from the very beginning, even as a part of the family. But no obligations: you are as independent as you want. House is in a friendly, quiet neigbourhood. DART station Harmonstown to be found only a few minutes walking distance away. If you stay two or more days, you'll love it not being within the noisy centre. I'd always consider coming back to Debbie and her family, at least to say hello to them and the dog and the cat. Highly recommended!
(And, they are used to have long-term guests.)
Debbie, John and their family is the perfect host for my trip. They are all very friendly, genuine and helpful. The location is just 20 mins to city centre and it is in a very quiet area near a very nice huge park. They provide breakfast and dinner everyday and treat you as part of the family. They also have very friendly pets, Sally (lovely cat) and Molly (the most patient dog I have ever met) :)
I highly recommend this place for anyone who would stay in Dublin for more than a few days!!

Debbie and John live in quiet and nice place very close to Dublin.
if I'm ever will be studying in Dublin or will be traveling in Dublin again, I will stay at their house. They are really good and decent family. But the kids are grown up, do not buy toys for them for a gift :) They have good sence of humor, it was clean and cosy incide the house, dinner was very tasty! What else could we (travellers) wish for ?
Я была первым, но думаю не последним путешественником из России, что останавливались у Дебби и Джона. Рекомендую их дом.
Debbie´s home is the best you can stay in Dublin. She and her houseband John are the nicest people you could ever meet and stay with, they are stunning, so nice and you will feel like in home. House is lovely and they cook amazing and theres no any bad thing to say, just beautifull and marvellous things about them and home, definitely suggest this place to stay if you go to Dublin!!
It was great to stay with Debbie and John! My friend, Cindy and I felt like home and causal to stay with them. The room is lovely and comfortable,additionally, we enjoyed the breakfast and home-cooked dinner! The location is also good to the city centre, it takes just about 10 minutes by train (DART). I would highly recommended anyone who wants to visit Dublin definitely stay here! Thank you, Debbie and John. We had a very fantastic St. Patrick's weekend! Best wishes for you all :)
Hi Jhon and Debbie!!
Jhon and Debbie are fantastic host who made me feel like at home since the first minute I met them. Jhon came to the airport to pick me up and was very nice to have this service.
They explained everything about the house and the city of Dublin.
My room was big, very clean and tidy.
At dinner time, we gathered all together and was nice to have very interesting conversations with Jhon, Debbie, Sara(Dennies's daugther), Sam(Jhon's son) and the other guests while we enjoied the Jhon's cooking Italian dishes.
The house is very close from city center, it's about 5 min walk to Dart train station and 15 min on the train aprox.
I highly recomend to stay with them if you plan to stay in Dublin you wont'be regreted.
Best wishes to Jhon and Debbie!!
