Our home

Our home is a detatched house on a small street at the foot of the hills, 10 minutes walk from Greystones beach and the railway station with half hourly trains to Dublin city centre (40min). There are three bedrooms upstairs, one en suite and a bathroom. All bedrooms have their own wardrobes. There is a kitchen with all the usual appliances you’d expect, a living room with TV, DVD etc and an outdoor play area for children which includes swings and a tree house. There is a garden to front and rear with a terraced area at the back door where you can barbeque and sit outside in the evening. The house is accessed by a 40m drive giving total privacy and quiet.Two bikes are available.

Who we are

  1. We are both work in secondary schools, as a teacher of English and a Principal and have long summer breaks which we would like to fill with a house exchange. We have both travelled and enjoy the outdoors a lot, as well as getting to know new people and experiencing real life in other countries. We had one very successful house exchange two years ago. We have a small 1 month old baby. Children are, of course, welcome in our home. We are able to speak English, German, Italian and a little French and Spanish so don’t be afraid to give us a call. We will, of course, take excellent care of your property and would hope for the same in return.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is situated in the bustling coastal town of Greystones in Wicklow known as Ireland's Garden County. Greystones was voted the world's most liveable community in 2008 and is about 40 minutes from Dublin by road or using the excellent DART rail service to the city centre every 30 minutes.
There are three supermarkets and a deli within a 5 minutes walk of the house. The town has many excellent cafes and restaurants and unique boutiques. There are two long blue-flag beaches with lifeguards in the summer. Greystones offers many sporting activities including sailing, rowing, fishing, 5 golf clubs and a driving range, an all weather running track, children's play centre, swimming pool and tennis courts.
Greystones offers easy access to the Wicklow Mountains' National Park with its excellent mountain hiking and numerous forest walks and nature reserves.(Trail Maps available) Glendalough and its medieval monastic city is a 30min drive. Kilruddery, Powerscourt and Mount Usher houses and gardens are all within a 20 min drive. Avoca (Ballykissangel) is also a short drive away. Dublin city centre with all the attractions of one of Europe's smallest and friendliest capital cities is easily accessible. Greystones has an hourly coach service direct to Dublin airport and is about 90 minutes from Rosslare Port.
The beauty of the Wicklow landscape is such that many movies have been shot here including PS I love you and Leap Year. Three Film location trails are signposted for the films Excaliber, Braveheart and Michael Collins all shot in Co. Wicklow.
