About our home

Our home is situated near the bustling market town of Castlebar. A few minutes walk away is a championship golf course, apart from the many other activities the surrounding area has to offer. Horse riding, hill walking & swimming are also close by. There is a leisure centre within a few minutes drive, that has a swimming pool, gym, jacuzzi, sauna & steam room. You could always treat yourself to a massage or manicure whilst you're there!

And for the more energetic, there is the holy mountain of Croagh Patrick to be climbed. The famine memorials, & museums of the old Irish country way of life. The cottage is a great base for exploring the west of Ireland!


More about us

  1. We are Anna & David. David is a retired managing director of a printing company, & Anna is a semi-retired teacher, also involved as a voluntary member of the R.S.P.C.A. We have spent the past few years renovating a traditional cottage & outbuildings in the west of Ireland. We are now looking forward to a bit more leisure time. We have 2 grown-up children, Both of whom have flown the nest. We usually travel alone, but occasionally our daughter & 17 year old grandson who live nearby may join us.

    We also have a son, daughter-in-law and family living in Adelaide, and so we are always interested in an exchange of 4-5 weeks to Adelaide, as we do like to have an independent base when visiting the family. This would usually be around Dec/Jan.

    We are experienced hosts and exchangers, and all our exchanges have been very enjoyable with good communications with our fellow exchangers, to make sure they have the most enjoyable time possible, and to make the most of all the area has to offer.

    We take a pride in our home, so therefore we would look after another persons in exactly the same way.
