Our home

Our home is very clean, modern and spacious. It has a large kitchen with all mod-cons and adjoining open-plan dining room. In addition downstairs there is a large family room and a further reception (music room) with a piano. The main bathroom is also downstairs. The house is surrounded by garden and there is a large wooden play area structure in the garden for children to use as well as a large patio for BBQ's and enjoying the view of beautiful surroundings. The three large upstairs bedrooms comprise one en-suite with kingsize bed and two single beds in each of the other rooms. In addition to the ensuite upstairs there is a separate shower room with toilet. We have tiles and wooden floors throughout with carpet only on stairs. The house has lots of character with an eclectic mix of modern and antique furniture.We have had 3 very successful exchanges in Paris, Valencia (Spain) and Italy.

Who we are

  1. We are in early 50's with two children age 16(girl) and 14(boy). I am a lecturer in the university in Galway and hubby is a primary school teacher. We would love a family holiday (2 weeks or more) July/August 2018 which would provide adventure, excitement and fun for our children (as well as ourselves!). We are flexible with the dates in July/August. We have a very friendly cat who lives outside and just comes in for food when hungry, her name is Belle. Our house is clean and we would also expect to stay in a clean house. We will care for and respect your house as we would our own. We have already had successful exchanges in Paris, Valencia, and Reggio Emillia, Italy.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is located in a rural setting 15 kms from Galway city, half-way between Moycullen and Oughterard. The sea is within driving distance with many beautiful beaches and country and coastal walks, golf and boating activities nearby. Oughterard is famous for its fishing tourism. Galway is a beautiful city with something for everyone and can be explored on foot. It has great theatres and festivals, and is also host to the great Galway Races. Connemara is just breathtaking in the summer and the children would love it. You can also easily visit the famously historic Aran Islands, The Cliffs of Moher and The Burren. Our car is available for you to use.
