I was moving to Ireland permanently, stayed three weeks and used the home as a bridgehead for my relocation operations. Everybody was very helpful from the start and willing to offer help way beyond the expected kindness. I felt like I was the 40 years old adopted son of a nice family. The room wasn't big, but left nothing to be desired. Wide variety of buses at the nearest stops, to take you everywhere in the city. All sort of shops at the doorstep for all other needs. No better way to start my new life.

I had a great time at Elva's place throughout my weeks in Ireland. The place is near the center in a quiet area, you can take bus to the center just next to the house, very easily, and very often. You can buy your groceries at shops 2 min away from the house. The room is nice and cosy, with everything you need to put your stuffs and clothes in. Elva gives you all the information you need for your stay : useful things, ideas of places to visit... We had lovely discussions, it was easy to speak and understand because she adjusts her language according to your English level. She makes sure at every moment you feel well and comfortable. I highly recommend this place, perfect for short or longer stays !

Staying with Elva was wonderful! She was a helpful and kind host. Her home is beautiful and clean and is a quick 15-20 min bus ride into the city center. Thanks, Elva!

I am a special needs teacher living with my 19 year old son. We live in a 4 bed semi detached red brick 1930s house 5km from Dublin city centre. The house is 10 minutes from the city on the bus. I like meeting new people and sharing my love of Dublin with them.
