Our home

Our home looks out on Dublin bay. It is a two storey, white stucco'ed, terraced house with a square bay window to the front and it was built in 1920 as a sea-side residence. There are three bedrooms to the rear of the house; a kitchen/dining room on the ground floor to the front and a rooflit living room on the first floor to the front. We deliberately moved our living spaces to the front of the house to make the most of the view. The night lights of the ships as they pass in and out of Dublin port never fails to enchant.

The back garden is small but we recently did some work on it to maximise its use for eating outside. There is one bathroom and WC and a utility area for clothes washing.

Who we are

  1. We are a couple of architects with two teenage children - Louis and Ellen. We both work in my husband's practice (not as busy as it used to be needless to say!) and commute into the south of the city while our children go to a local second level school.

    We have not exchanged homes before and over the past number of years have holidayed in the west of Ireland not wanting the hassle of airtravel. We are ready now to experience other places and have heard such good things about the house-swapping experiences of our friends that we are tempted to try it.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We love Clontarf. Under 6km (about 3 and a half miles) from Dublin city centre, it stretches along the coast and is part of a 10km water-side strip north of Dublin Bay from Fairview to Howth. Having the promenade at our door step has encouraged us to walk, run and cycle - great for fitness and good health. We are one mile from St Anne's park (http://www.dublincity.ie/recreationandculture/dublincityparks/visitapark/pages/stannespark.aspx) A 270 acre public parkland that once belonged to the Guinness family St Anne's is famous for its rose garden and rose festival which takes place in July every year.

The area has a village core with three restaurants a family grocer and of course (it's Ireland after all) a pub - with a local theatre above it.

We find that for everyday grocery shopping and needs we stay local.

There is a very frequent bus route to the city centre which we travel to for theatre, cinema and shopping.
