Our home

Our home is a large, architect-designed house that we finished building in 2005. It's very much open-plan, with lovely curved walls in the living areas and kitchen. There's a piano in the hall, and an stove for chilly nights. We have a large garden and views in all directions, out to sea, up the nearby Tara Hill and of green farmland all around.

Who we are

  1. I'm a lecturer working in a Dublin university; my wife works as a software consultant. We have two young children aged 7 and 9. We spent a sabbatical in Paris in 2009 and got hooked on spending time abroad with the kids. We've had five very successful exchanges so far to Copenhagen, Paris, Amsterdam, Bern and Cork (refs available). Although myself and my wife have both lived in various cities around the world, we love the peace and quiet of where we live now.

    We're very conscious that a home exchange is a matter of great trust. We promise to treat your home with great respect, and expect you to take care of ours as well.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a beauty spot. You can hear and see the sea -- a long sandy beach is just a few minutes stroll away down a private lane. The sun rises over the sea and sets on Tara Hill, behind the house. We live half-a-mile down a lane with two other houses close by. The nearest shop&pub is 0.5 miles away. Gorey, a thriving market town with many shops, restaurants and pubs is 5 miles away and close by are many amenities including award-winning restaurants, one of the finest spas in Europe, several golf courses, horse riding etc. Sailing, surfing, swimming (indoor or in the sea) and seafishing are possible in Courtown, 5 miles way. We would provide you with a car if required -- it's essential to get around the area.
