Our holiday cottage is situated in the lively rural village of Miltown Malbay. Miltown Malbay is in the county Clare, in the beautiful west of Ireland. The nearby beach of Spanish Point is approx 1 mile away (3 mins drive/15 mins walk). The coast around this area is spectacular; sweeping hills, cliffs and crashing waves. It is also famous for surfing and every water sport imaginable. The village of Lahinch, (just a 10 mins drive) is one of Europe's top surfing destinations and runs day-long or week-long surfing lessons for all ages. Waking enthusiasts will find countless trails and treks to explore. Boating tours and adventures depart from a number of nearby piers, taking people to the Cliffs of Moher or dolphin-watching.
Something about ourselves
We are a retired Irish couple, with three adult children. Our daughter (college lecturer), her husband (accountant) and their two children are also interested in doing a house swap, as are our son and his wife (both teachers). Between us, we would be interested in arranging a few different swaps during the year. Because the cottage is our second home, exchanges can be non-simultaneous.
