Property features

Who we are

  1. I enjoy travelling, especially in Europe (but not exclusively), both cities and rural destinations appeal to me.
    I can happily travel solo or with a friend or two. I'm house proud so you can be assured I will take good care of your home too! References available from places I have rented in the past. Now however, I am ready to venture into the world of exchanges!
    I'm a keen walker and I enjoy music, theatre and film. I like dogs, but I don't have one! As I like gardening too. There will be no garden required of guests in my house....relax and enjoy the garden...no need to work in it !

  2. My house is available most of the year and indeed if a long term (or very long term) exchange is of interest this could be considered....there's plenty to do in Dungarvan so you could even consider becoming a semi-local !

  3. Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy all appeal..... and also many other distant destinations.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Dungarvan is a coastal town on the south coast of Ireland. Approximately 80 minutes from Cork airport. Dublin airport is approximately 2.5 hours (depending on traffic). There are good public transport links from Dungarvan to Waterford and Cork. Dungarvan has many clubs and facilities for recreation that warmly welcome visitors. It's an area renowned for hillwalking in the Knockmealdown and Comeragh mountains and the Nire Valley and lakes. For more gentle walking try the local beach (12 minutes drive from the property)Why not walk or cycle some (or all!) of the 46km Waterford Greenway with coastal and countryside views (bike hire available locally) and stop for a coffee, a drink or lunch en route. Three golf clubs are located on the edge of the town. There is also a tennis club, sailing and Irish dancing lessons. After all the activity relax in the many atmospheric bars in the town pre- or post dinner in one of the many fine restaurants. The town also has a theatre, a museum and cinema and Irish music can be heard in many venues.
20 minutes drive from the property you can visit the scenic coastal village of Ardmore and enjoy cliff and beach walks. Within 45 minutes drive you can visit the historical sights such as Cahir Castle, the Swiss Cottage and Ormonde castle as well as the Viking Quarter of Waterford city. Driving one hour from Dungarvan you can visit the Rock Of Cashel and Kilkenny Castle. If a shorter drive appeals there are many fine gardens to be visited in season such as Lismore Castle gardens, Cappoquin House gardens and Mount Congreve, all on the Waterford Garden trail. Time your visit well and you can indulge in the Blackwater Valley Opera Festival and its array of recitals and performances. Why not take a boat trip on the picturesque river Blackwater or sample some locally produced Blackwater Gin at sunset? There is a lot to do in and around Dungarvan.
