Our home

We live in a converted nineteenth century stables which has been fully modernised. It is a detached house, not overlooked, with electronic gates and secure parking. Downstairs there is a modern, fully equipped attractive kitchen as well as an extensive lounge cum dining room area that is cosy and inviting. There is also a well equipped study and a second cosy sitting room with television and wood burning stove. The bathroom downstairs has a walk in shower.
Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, 3 of which are doubles and one single, as well as a modern bathroom. All of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.
A unique home for such a superb location.

Who we are

  1. We are Ken and Helen, a recently retired couple with an educational background, but still working during our summer months. We are both involved in an English Language School - Waterford Academy of Education ( Over the last decade we have been regular visitors to Australia as we have family living in the Sydney area. Because of growing grandchildren and an au-pair we feel the need to be independent and yet close enough to visit. Our eldest son is an I.T. Project Manager while our daughter-in-law works in Advertising.
    In Waterford we have a married daughter with a 3 year old child. She is a Nurse presently working in a local centre for disabled children. Our youngest son, who is unmarried, lives in Dublin and works in Advertising/Marketing with a large supermarket chain. We can assure you we will respect your home and possessions the way we would our own. If you are interested we would love to hear from you. You will not be disappointed. This will be our 2nd home exchange to Sydney.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is on a main bus route within 1 mile of Waterford City centre and the local hospital. A shopping centre with coffee shops, restaurants, doctors surgery, pharmacy and library is only 10 minutes walk from the house. We are 15 minutes away from the Regional Airport with the Comeragh Mountains and the beaches of Tramore and Dunmore East close by. Kilkenny, a wonderful city with attractive castle and grounds as well as a top class design and craft centre is only 30 minutes away by road. There are also numerous top class golf courses in the Waterford area. Dublin and Cork, the two largest cities in Ireland, are approximately 90 minutes away by road. We are happy to exchange our family Saab car.
Waterford is the oldest city in Ireland - celebrating its 1100th birthday in 2014. It is a city steeped in history and has a magnificent museum. While Waterford is renowned for its crystal glass it is a lively city and particularly so during the month of December with the Waterford Winterval Festival, one of the largest festivals in Ireland.
Ireland is a very special place with a wonderful atmosphere and people.
