Our home

Our family home is a modern three bedroom house situated in the historical village of Slane and overlooked by the 16th century Franciscan abbey on the Hill of Slane. We feel that our home offers the best of both worlds as it is situated in a rural setting but is convenient to local towns and Dublin. Our home is ideally suited for families, with two double bedrooms ensuite and a third child's bedroom. We also have a separate playroom which could be used as an extra bedroom (we have an air matress that can be used for this purpose).

The home has all the modern conveniences including HD TV, Bluray/DVD, HiFi, WiFi, games and a Nintendo Wii. There are also 4 bikes available for use. There is front garden and at the back there is a patio terrace and large raised garden. We also have a dog and a cat but if you are not an animal lover we can organise for someone to look after both of them.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of 3; Gareth 41, Jennifer 40 and Isabelle 10. We both work in Dublin City University (Gareth as Employee Relations Manager & Jennifer as a Secretary) and we love to travel. We are always open to exploring new countries and cultures. We have enjoyed six very successful home exchanges (Spain, France and Italy) over the last few Summers and we are now looking forward to organising an exchange for Summer 2016. If you are interested in exploring Ireland from a base that offers both the historical and modern please contact us.
