Our home

Our house is in a quite cul-de-sac about 4 miles from the nearest town. It was build in 2000, which means it has all the modern comforts. Light, bright and spacious, but also cosy and comfortably warm. The house is surrounded by mature trees and garden (veg and flowers). Along one side runs a stream where ducks and chickens are kept. There is plenty of space (and toys) for kids to explore and run around. There is a wood burning stove in the sitting room. Three of the bedrooms have double beds, and the fourth bedroom has a single bed. There are 2 bathrooms with showers and bath.

Who we are

  1. Damian is an Design Engineer and my name is Lilly and I am a Gardener/Homemaker. Then there are Caimin (11) and Aoife(9) who are going to the local primary school and enjoy looking after our dog, cat, chickens and ducks (The animals can be looked after by our neighbour during your stay). We love the outdoors and spend days either in the (veg)garden, working on diy projects (building a shed/loft at the moment), hiking, cycling, etc. or just having a bbq on the deck. As we will be travelling with our kids, we can only exchange during the school holidays. WE HAVE A HOUSE FOR SUMMER 2009.
