Our home

Our lovely home, "Porters Place", is originally an old railway cottage dating back to the 1880s. It has recently been completely renovated and extended. It is a bright airy modern house now while still maintaining the lovely charm of the old country cottage. On the ground floor is a large bright open plan kitchen and living area opening out onto the large garden (trampoline, swing and slide set, playhouse ).We have very high spec kitchen appliances making it a fantastic kitchen to cook and entertain in. There is also a second living room with French doors to a different part of the garden, a playroom full t the brim with toys, a bathroom, a small study and large hall/ lobby area. Upstairs are 2 double bedrooms (one ensuite with walk in wardrobe), a bedroom with two single beds and another with one single aswell as a large family bathroom. .

Who we are

  1. We are Debbie and Colm, a married couple with 3 children (two boys 8 & 5 and a little 3 year old girl). We are both professionals (teacher and I.T consultant). We have never done a home exchange before although Debbie did them every Summer as a child with her parents. We are very well travelled as a couple but of course this slowed down once the children came along. We are anxious to take the children on holidays that are not simply resort type vacations and feel that home exchange will be ideal.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are situated in a beautiful part of the countryside, surrounded by green fields with amazing views over the Wicklow Mountains. It is the perfect place for children. They have great freedom in the large garden where there are goal posts, swing sets, a large trampoline, bicycles and even an indoor playarea in our large garage for those rainy days! Our nearest large town is Naas (8km) with many fantastic restaurants, boutique shops and traditional pubs. The smaller town of Kilcullen is 5 minutes drive and here you will find a supermarket, two great restaurants and traditional pub. Of course if feeling peckish you can always stroll down to the local farm and pick up some freshly laid eggs for breakfast! Our house offers the perfect touring base - you can reach Dublin in 30 minutes by car. The Wicklow Mountains fantastic for hiking are only 45 minutes away.The southeast coast with its beautiful beaches is less than an hour and in 2/3 hours by car you can reach the West of Ireland and the stunning Wild Atlantic Way.

Kildare is heaven both for golfing and horse racing enthusiasts. The famous KClub, home of the 2006 Ryder Cup is 15 minutes from the house. There are many other golf clubs of a high and challenging standard within 15/20 miles of the house.
The Curragh Racecourse - Irelands Premier flat racecourse and home of the Irish Derby is a mere 15 minutes by car while Punchestown - the home of Irish Jump Racing - is less than 5 minutes from the house!
