Our home

**For Summer 2019 house swap we are ideally looking for a full 3 week period either in July or Aug 2019 (anytime up to 20th August).
We are open to offers and would consider anyplace within Europe. We are particularly open to offers from Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, San Sebastian.

We have a renovated and newly extended our traditional bungalow (1750 sq ft) in the townland called Polleeney which is in Furbo, just 9kms outside Galway City. This is the very start of the region of Connemara, our home is nestled quietly in a designated Natural Heritage Bog Area so the surrounding environment is beautiful bogland - though we still are only 2kms (5 mins drive) to stunning beaches and the wonderful coastline of Galway Bay (Wild Atlantic Way). Our home is a central distance between Galway City and Spiddal, so we are in a little village called Furbo. It is the perfect location for a West of Ireland getaway, being very close to Galway City (9kms), and in South Connemara itself. It is a super location for accessing everything that the Wild Atlantic Way has to offer. www.wildatlanticway.com as well as all the activities and festivals that Galway City hold during the Summer https://www.giaf.ie/

For Summer 2019 house swap we are ideally looking for a full 3 week period either in July or Aug (anytime up to 20th August). Of course we will consider 2 weeks also.
If we are flying to the destination then a car swap would also be ideal

Who we are

  1. We are a family of 5. I am an Art & Design teacher in Galway City and my husband is a Software IT Project Manager. We have 3 fabulous daughters, who will be 13, 10 and 7 years of age this year (2019). We are delighted to be in a position to swop our home as we have recently extended it so it is a very comfortable home for a family to visit the best part of Ireland, Galway and Connemara.

    We have a cat 'Ash' 2 years old who is a bit shy but will be at the house (but mostly outside) during the swap.
