Our home

Our home is spacious and lived in. We have 2 children aged 16 and 9 so are not too precious about marks on walls etc (we have plenty). With five bedrooms (2 childrens rooms), 3 en-suite double rooms. The master bedroom has a balcony and a roll top bath overlooking the fabulous view of Dooagh Village and out to the Atlantic. The landing has a settee to relax and read with oodles of light flooding in from the roof window. There is also a family bathroom with walk-in shower and bath.

We have a well equipped kitchen with breakfast bar. There is an 8 seater table and chairs in the kitchen diner and a little den at the end of the room with a solid fuel burning stove. This heats the water in the house on cold days and on warm days solar panels heat it.

We have a lounge with a wood burning stove and comfortable settees, a television and a hi fi for relaxing and some toys for the children to play with. Next door is the Gallery/Home Cinema... with large screen, projector and surround sound connected to the TV signal and A DVD and video player. There is a study, utility room and downstairs shower room.

We have a large garden (unlandscaped!)with use of Approx 1.5 acres of land for the kids to run around in and outdoor furniture for fair weather.

Who we are

  1. We (Geraldine and Jake) are in our forties and professionals (Health Service and a Photographer) with two children, 10 (daughter) and 17 (son). We are looking to travel and would like to go somewhere hot in europe in may 2019. Our home is free from Oct 2018 - Nov 2018. Thus we would consider an exchange at different times. Please contact us if you want to visit the amazing West Coast of Ireland. We are happy to offer Homestay if preferred. We have 2 double en-suite guest rooms and plenty of room in the house, though the great outdoors will keep you occupied for hours.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live on the beautiful Island of Achill. The furthest West Outpost of Europe with only 3000 miles of Atlantic between us and Newfoundland. The terrain has rugged beauty, mountains, rolling hills and 5 blue flag beaches.

There are many outdoor activities to enjoy, Golf, Fishing, Sea Fishing, Kayaking, Surfing, Kite Surfing, Horse Riding, Hiking and many others... Newport, Westport, Foxford and Castlebar are all within driving distance. Galway and Dublin are manageable as a day trip.

The landscape, the sky, the ocean and the locals make for an amazing experience...
