Our home

Our home is set in two acres of garden including stables and a paddock. It is spread over 3 levels with 2 bedrooms downstairs. As it is built into a slope the kitchen and living areas are actually upstairs but open on to a patio and deck. The 2 downstairs bedrooms each have their own en-suite shower rooms - specifically designed with teenagers in mind! This is our family home and has all the usual conveniences needed for everyday living, high speed internet, cable TV, Nespresso coffer maker(essential!), play station, barbecue,washer,dryer etc. etc.

Our nearest beach is just 4miles away and we have wetsuits, 2 kayaks, bikes, fishing rods, a surfboard and some well used body boards.

A car is essential and our Lexus is available for your use.
We also have a holiday home on Valentia Island in Co.Kerry and it may be possible to use this for some of the time you are here.

We are excited about and very much look forward to what this exchange may bring.
