Our home

Our home is a beautiful country home located 2 km from the picturesque village of Termonfeckin, Co.Louth. The house is very homely and tastefully decorated throughout with all the modern conveniences. The large kitchen overlooks the back garden and adjoining countryside. The spacious family room has double doors which open out to the garden where there is a picnic area and pond. All the bedrooms are spacious and four of the bedrooms have en-suites. There is an out door barbeque and dining area. We are situated 10km drive from the busy historic town of Drogheda and 35 minutes drive from Dublin Airport. The two championship golf courses of Baltray and Seapoint are less than 5 minutes drive away. The monastic ruins of Monsterboics and Mellifont abbey are 20 minutes drive as is the Stone age sites of Newgrange, knowth and Dowth. Horse riding, fishing, golf and the beach are close bye.
There are two award winning restaurants within 5 minutes drive. So, if its historic sites, golf or just relaxing, there is plenty to facilitate your taste.

Who we are

  1. We are Anthony and Suzanne, a married couple with a teenage daughter and a 12 year old daughter. We are a professional couple (Engineer and Secretary) and are considering a move to Australia. So we believe that the best way to sample Australian life would be to live and work in the country for around 3 months. This would enable us to live and work in a real life environment and would provide us with the best opportunity to make our decision on moving.
    We have not done a home exchange before, but we believe this is the best way to see Australia as a resident - and allow someone to see our home and sample our country. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first.
