We take away the stress and hard work of finding a room in Dublin. Due to the housing crisis, Students & Interns are experiencing great difficulty in finding rooms for rent, We have over 2500 host family's in Dublin and over 1000 host families throughout Ireland. We match your requirements to the host family's who have availability to ensure you have a happy comfortable, affordable stay.
Some hosts ask for this, please discuss with your host family.
For individual bookings you pay your rent directly to your host family, on the day you arrive and you are satisfied with your accommodation. You can pay weekly or monthly and you can discuss this with your host.
Most of our host families live within 30 to 60 minutes commute to the city centre, Irish families who offer their rooms do not live in the city centre and we have only a small number of hosts who live walking distance. However Dublin offers an excellent transport service, with plenty of bus, train, and tram.
