About our home

We live in a beautiful, spacious 5 bedroom house with a very large kitchen with all modern conveniences, several computers, a piano, several musical instruments, and many books you would of course be welcome to use during your stay. Our house is bright, modern and airy, and is only 10 years old. It has a music room, a TV room, 2 1/2 bathrooms, a glass conservatory, a BBQ, and a back garden. We would be happy to supply our bicycles, fishing rods, wetsuits, diving equipment or any other items you might wish to use.

We live in a beautiful, spacious 5 bedroom house in a suburban area on the outskirts of Limerick city, 1 km from the University, Sports Arena, Olympic-sized pool. We are a 5- minute walk from several good restaurants, a pub, a grocery store and a shopping centre, and we are a 30 minute drive from Shannon Airport. Our neighborhood is quiet and friendly. If you wish to tour Ireland, our location is ideal for touring or day-tripping to Clare, Cork, Galway, Kerry and Dublin which are all within 20-190 kms drive. We may be able to offer you our 1964 Classic red Mercedes as well.

We are University Lecturers/ Professors in the field of Sociology. My husband is Irish and I am Canadian; he is interested in history, nature, philosophy and reading; I enjoy reading, music, cooking, and yoga. We have written 2 academic books and many papers together (much to the dismay of our children, who find our conversations boring!). We are non-smokers, and we have 2 children aged 17 and 13 who are well-behaved and would be careful with your belongings. We love getting to know other cultures and are looking forward to swapping houses. We have had 7 extremely successful house swaps before, and are flexible and easygoing yet clean and responsible. We have a few pets but could farm them out if you so desired.
