Our home

Our suburban home is very pleasant and situated on the North side of Dublin. We returned from living in France three years ago so we've enjoyed making it attractive and comfortable and all our appliances are recently installed.
We can accommodate up to four people in two double bedrooms or a double and single room. We will place our personal stuff in the unused bedroom.
We enjoy our conservatory which is bright and south facing.
We have multi channel televison, wifi/broadband.
We also have free calls to Canadian landlines. Calls are up to 59 minutes in duration.

Who we are

  1. We are a retired professional couple, very active and in our early seventies. We love travel and with married daughters in both Vancouver (Burnaby) and India (Kolkata) we are kept busy in the holiday season. We are off to Madrid for a short break in November. Been on a cruise of the Mediterranean from Venice in September.
    Rodney enjoys golf and bridge and Jane loves gardening, walking, reading and cultural activities.
    We have a daughter and grandson here too so since we returned from 10 years in France we are busy every day.
