About our home

Our home is situated just 5 miles from Galway City centre and yet just at the start of rural Ireland. Our home is a large modern 3800 sq. ft. detached home on a large private site. There is a high level stone wall to the front with security gate for privacy. Our home is comfortable clean and spacious. The rear deck is large and is bordered by a large rear garden surrounded by a high level 6ft timber fence with further views of rural Ireland. The local fauna and flowers and Galway Bay in the distance. We love having family and friends over for barbacues and spending warm and sunny evenings on the decking.

We offer a very spacious 3800sq.ft. detached home with 5 very large bedrooms similar to American homes and a sixth bedroom/office for the business person that must keep in touch. There are 3.5 baths in total and all bedrooms are large with plenty of wardrobe space. The main bedroom has an Emperour Bed and is enormous with en suite and separate wardrobe area. One bedroom has two full size double beds and ample wardrobe space. The kitchen/family area is very large and spacious where everyone can sit and have fun while meals are being prepared and served. There is a wine and beer cooler in the kitchen along with a flat screen TV. There is permanent wi fi broadband connection, 50" Flat Screen TV in the main family room and full size American Size Pool Table. The property has a security system monitored by external security company. Our family reside nearby and are always available to assist in any way possible. The property is very private, secure and secluded.

We are both professional people with a family business in industrial and garage equipment. We have enjoyed a good deal of travelling over the years and this is our first time to avail of Home Exchange.

    We would like to communicate with those interested in exchanging with us for our home in Galway so that we can best inform you of our home and the facilities available to you in Galway, Ireland.

    My wife Linda and my self Colum are both in our very early 50's and are trying hard to slow down and travel and enjoy the life experienced in different parts of the world. America has been our favorite destination to date but the Caribbean Islands are our preference as we have yet to travel there. However, we are also very interested in traveling further afield to other parts of Europe, Africa, Austrialia, New Zeland, Hawaii and further - please surprise us.
