Our home

We offer a modern detached 4-bed home in a quiet street in Ovens near Cork city. Our house was fully renovated in 2014.

We have a large spacious living room, adjoining dining room and kitchen with all mod cons. There is a cosy media room at the front with large smart TV and bluetooth speakers.

We have two double bedrooms, one including master bedroom with en-suite and walk-in wardrobe, and two single bedrooms (although the rooms are decorated for children they are both with full-size beds!).

The bathroom upstairs contains a large bath and a shower. There is a downstairs toilet and also a utility room.

Our home is bright and spacious.

We have a nice garden and terrace with a dining table and seating for 6 at the back, which is nice for BBQs in the evening. The garden is south facing so the sun shines on it from late afternoon in the summer. We have an inflatable pool and other toys for children if required!

Our driveway can accommodate 4 cars. There is a large green space directly on front of our house.

Who we are

  1. We are Neil and Aileen, a married couple aged 41 and 36 respectively, both from Cork. We have two children, aged 6 and 4.

    We are professionals (IT Project manager and QA) and enjoy travelling when we are able to get away!

    A family saloon car (with child seats if needed) can be made available in an exchange.

    We are flexible with dates but ideally would find a two-week exchange during July / August to allow for our summer holiday. Also open to short term exchanges at other times of the year!

    We are planning on visiting Wales or Southern England in the next 12 months for one week so would welcome offers from there. We always like to go to Italy and France, and as the kids get older we'd love to visit North America. Also open to short exchanges in Ireland!

  2. Neil works in IT and Aileen in Quality, both for multinational companies in Cork.

  3. We like sports and travelling!
