Our home

Our home was built in the 1960's but has been completely remodeled 10 years ago. It is modern, spacious and extremely comfortable. We have a large kitchen and family space leading out onto a deck with a large table and 6 chairs, BBQ and a big garden. We have a gate that leads to a private park with tennis courts and soccer nets. We have found that with previous swaps, families have loved this very safe space for their children to play and meet local children.We have a shed with 2 bikes and other outdoor toys.
Downstairs we have a cosy playroom/den with an Lshaped sofa, tv and wii player with Netflix. We have a lots of jigsaws, dvds and other games for children.
There is a large sitting room with a fireplace and plasma 42" TV. And DVD player. We have 2 sofas in this room. We have lots of books which you are welcome to read.
We will leave lots of books and other useful information on Dublin and Ireland, which you are free to use.
There is a downstairs WC on this level. The kitchen has all mod cons, including Nespresso coffee machine and Nutribullet Juicer.
Upstairs we have a bathroom and shower. There are 2 double rooms with plenty of wardrobe space. We also have 2 smaller rooms with single beds.

Who we are

  1. We are a family that love to travel. My husband, Patrick, is a school principal and I, Aine, am a teacher. We have 3 lovely, well behaved girls,(18,16 and 13). We have a pug, Dizzee, that will be going to a dog minders for the duration of the holiday
    We have successfully swapped homes 7 times already with a different organisation, Intervac, but felt we would like a little more choice.
    In summer 2014 we travelled to Thailand, our first swap with Home For Exchange and adored it.
    In 2016 we spent 10 wonderful days in Copenhagen.
    We are very house proud and would treat your home with the utmost respect. We are avid fans of the house exchange idea and have always swapped with very like minded people. We are a very sporty and outdoorsy family and enjoy meeting people. We are very excited at the prospect of new travel experiences.
    We look forward to hearing from you and hope that you will be interested in visiting the shores of the Emerald Isle during 2017/18. Our eldest daughter may not travel with us this year.
    We endeavour to reply within 24 hours of an enquiry.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Whether its a trip up the mountains for a bracing hike, a sampling of the delicious local produce from the farmers' market, an opportunity to steep yourself in the world famous Irish culture and hospitality, there's something for everyone in Dublin.
We live in a fantastic location for all the above. A spacious and comfortable family home in a quiet, safe and well established suburb of Dublin, only 6 kms from the city centre.
Dublin has numerous tourist attractions, Trinity College, The Book of Kells, St Patrick's Cathedral, Guinness Hopstore, Dublin Castle, as well as some of the oldest pubs in the world, where a good pint of Guinness is always served. Temple Bar is the cultural centre of Dublin, our own "Left Bank", while St Stephen's Green is a stroll away at the top of a bustling Grafton Street, where buskers and street entertainment abound. Many cultural centres in Dublin have the added bonus of free admission charge, specifically The National Art Gallery,The Museum of Modern Art, The National Museum of Ireland, to name a few.
Our location in Rathfarnham is unique in that we are only 4 kms from beautiful mountain walks, natural trails and golf courses, while some of the finest beaches in the country can be found in Brittas Bay, Co. Wicklow, an hour's drive away.
The M50 motorway is a mere 10 mins away from our home which will bring you to many locations around Dublin, including the airport and is the main artery to bring you to Galway, Cork, Belfast and most other places around the country. The longest destinations are only 2-3 hours away.
We are particularly well served with lots of excellent amenities, shopping,including Dundrum Town Centre, a huge shopping mall, transport links, playgrounds and parks.
