Our home

We live in a beautiful, spacious 5 bedroom house with a very large kitchen with all modern conveniences, several computers, a piano, several musical instruments, and many books you would of course be welcome to use during your stay. Our house is bright, modern and airy, and is only 7 years old. It has a music room, a TV room, 2 1/2 bathrooms, a glass conservatory, and a back garden. We would be happy to supply our bicycles, fishing rods, wetsuits, diving equipment or any other items you might wish to use.

Who we are

  1. We are University Lecturers/ Professors in the field of Sociology. My husband is Irish and I am Canadian; he is interested in history, nature, philosophy and reading; I enjoy reading, music, cooking, and yoga. We have written 4 academic books and many papers together (much to the dismay of our children, who find our conversations boring!). We are non-smokers, and we have 2 children aged 17 and 13 who are well-behaved and would be careful with your belongings. We love getting to know other cultures and are looking forward to swapping houses. We have had 10 extremely successful house swaps before, and are flexible and easygoing yet clean and responsible. We have a few pets but could farm them out if you so desired.
