More about us

  1. We are Catherine and Eamonn, a recently retired professional couple.

    Together with our 2 sons and extended family we have spent our best vacations in this cottage.

    We have already had a very successful exchange with a US family where we exchanged June in Ireland for September in the US

    As this is our second home we are flexible on when we travel and exchange.

    Our first preference is for a beach holiday somewhere sunny and warm but we are also interested in city breaks in London - Paris etc
