“We did a weekend exchange with Fiona and Liam in summer 2012. Their house is in a quiet spot a short walk outside the charming town of Midleton. Their house is spacious and very comfortable with loads of toys&books for kids. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing few days there. Fiona and Liam are very open and friendly the whole exchange went very smoothly and effortlessly. There's lots to do in the area, though in a weekend we only had time to do a fraction of it. We heartily recommend this house and the East Cork area for a longer exchange! Mel and Sheila.”
