Where we want to go
Description of our house
We have a lovely 4 bedroom house in the Irish countryside. It is situated on the edge of Glynn village about 10km from Wexford town. The house is bordered by a forest on two sides and is surrounded by trees. The living area is spacious with an open plan kitchen/dining room. Big windows give lots of light and a stove provides warmth for those chilly evenings. PLEASE NOTE, we have 2 small dogs who are both well behaved. Although we can have them put in kennels, we would prefer if you could take care of them for us. All that this would entail is for them to be fed and watered as they will remain on the property.

The setting of the house is all about tranquility. Quiet neighbours and a rural setting make for a safe environment. Wexford town is 10km away and has all major shops as well as a lovely harbor which provides boat trips. A number of lovely beaches are within half an hour drive and the Irish National Heritage Park is 10 min drive away. We are 2 hours drive from Dublin with 4 trains a day going to and from the city. The beautiful Wicklow mountains, Hook Head peninsula and Kilkenny city are within easy reach.
Something about ourselves
We are a family of 6. Our children are Eva, 10, Nathaniel, 8, Rebecca, 6 and Fia our youngest who is 4. Our names are Athol and Liberty. Liberty is a trained graphic designer although she has been at home with the children for the last ten years. I am a psychologist working in the Irish Health Service. We love our little bit of paradise here in the South East of Ireland. We have previously done several house swaps and have found it to be the most wonderful experience. We still correspond with the families. It is a unique way to save on costs and to gain an insight into the lives of other people.
