Our home

Our home is spacious and comfortable, with a large kitchen/dining area overlooking the back garden with its trees, rockery and small orchard. The patio doors in the dining area open onto a terrace where we like to eat and enjoy the peaceful garden view on sunny days. The ground floor has wooden floors, a cosy sitting room with large flat screen TV, a double bedroom and bathroom, a playroom and an entrance hall. Upstairs, there are two single bedrooms, a large master bedroom ensuite, a bathroom and a study with a single bed. Wireless broadband is available throughout the house. We live in on a quiet rural road with several detached houses, but the house is just 3km from the lively town of Athlone, Lough Ree and a number of golf courses. There is a play structure and plenty of space in the garden for children to enjoy, and the house is safe and private.

Who we are

  1. My husband Padraig and I are both lecturers in a third-level institute in Athlone, in Engineering and Languages respectively. We have 15 year- old twin boys and a 12 year-old daughter. We enjoy travelling We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try what seems a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see yours. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in Ireland. We would like to start with Europe and try the USA and Canada at a later stage.

The regional sports centre is 2km away.Athlone itsef is ideal for family holidays with a rich diversity of family-friendly activities including pet-farms, family fun parks, fishing, swimming, boating and golfing.

Galway, with all its many attractions is only an hour's drive. Ireland's capital Dublin is also a one hour drive away via motorway.
