Our home

Our location is in Dun Laoghaire, on the coast, South County Dublin

The house is a period Victorian four storey end of terrace building, with established gardens to the front and rear. The garden to the rear has a patio with chairs and tables for eating outdoors. High ceilings, tall sash windows, rows of bookshelves and comfortable fittings will add to the experience. Comfortable fold-out beds can be added in the bedrooms.

The house is fully equipped with all the equipment that you would expect and has a fast internet connection.There is a car available also for exchange.

Dublin city is very accessible on the local commuter line (DART)30mins or by car. The station is a short walk away (15 mins). Access to the rest of Ireland is easy via the ring road (the M50) and of course scenic Wicklow is very close.

AVAILABILITY: our little group of 4 retired people is flexible but we aim to spend either the month of July or the month of August on the exchange.

Who we are

  1. My name is Donal, I'm a retired accountant, and I love to travel. I have three grown up children and 5 grandchildren. Over many years when the children were small we did house exchanges, and always found it to be a very good experience. I have also exchanged 8 times through this website for a smaller older group of three or four retired friends who are all flexible as to the times that they can travel.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

This area is called Sandycove, and it is an ideal location for those who want a bit of everything - seaside, coastal vistas, city excursions, rural sightseeing. It is also known for its James Joyce's Tower, an old Martello Tower which features in the opening pages of Joyce’s Ulysses. It is an established neighbourhood and is situated between Dun Laoghaire and Dalkey, both 15 minutes walk away. Dun Laoghaire has a large Marina and you can rent out boats there.

Within walking distance are local amenities - shops, several welcoming pubs and excellent restaurants and buses and local train to the centre of Dublin (30mins).

importantly, the coastal seaside area of the Forty Foot is a few minutes walk away for good swimming off the rocks. Driving for less than an hour takes you along THE coastal drive towards the national parks of Wicklow mountains and of Powerscourt, Glendalough and other historic sites. There is easy access to the national road network and drives to Newgrange, Cashel and the Shannon.
