More about us

  1. Our names are Sinead and Kenneth, married, with 2 Boys aged 10 and 4 years of age.). We have had four home exchange holidays before and all have been extremely positive experiences. We would like to travel anywhere in Europe or in Ireland. I work as a Speech and Language Therapist and Kenneth is a Teacher. We are both active people enjoying walking beaches, cycling, golf, hiking and swimming. We also enjoy going to plays, local events and the cinema. I am on mailing lists of our local theatres and the National Museum of Ireland which keep me regularly updated on upcoming events, talks and workshops. We also enjoy gardening and are keen on conserving the environment in every way possible, hence we recycle, compost etc. Ideally we would like a central location to explore and immerse ourselves in the local community and partake in local events and customs. We are open to all offers and look forward to our next exchange.

Where is it?


Ideally located to explore the natural wonders of the Wild Atlantic Way in the west of Ireland. Balla is geographically the centre of County Mayo. There are 5 blue flag beaches within a 30 mins drive including beaches in Westport which was recently voted "Best place to live in Ireland" and on Achill Island. Both Westport and Achill Island are linked with the Greenway where you can cycle on a designated cycle lane. Balla is 30 mins from Ireland West International Airport, 50 mins to Galway city, 60 mins to Achill Island and 3 hour drive/train journey to Dublin and it is close to national bus and train routes. Overall Balla is a friendly, sociable, safe town where local people enjoy meeting new people.
