About our home

Our house, just outside the village of Easkey County Sligo, is a renovated and modernised cottage that we use as our second home. It is a detached house with front and back gardens. There are four bedrooms, a living room with a fireplace, a kitchen cum dining room and a bathroom/WC. The heating is provided by an oil fired central heating system. Upstairs there is a large open plan loft with two futons, a snooker and soccer table; this is a large bright room perfect for reading and relaxing!!

The main bedroom has a queen sized bed, wardrobes, chest of drawers and an ensuite wash hand basin. There are two single rooms with single beds, wardrobes and ensuite wash hand basins.The fourth bedroom has a double and a single bed, together with a wardrobe and chest of drawers.

The living room has a TV and a music system that includes a record player. The kitchen has all the modern appliances one would expect, including an electric cooker/oven/grill, fridge freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dish washer, micro wave oven and slow cooker. The bathroom includes WC, a wash hand basin and an electric shower.

This is a relaxing, cheerful house, furnished in a casual easy living style. It is a perfect place for a peaceful relaxing break as you adjust to the leisurely pace of country living in rural Ireland.

As this is our second home so we are not committed to a simultaneous home exchange.

A car is strongly recommended.

More about us

  1. We are Eamonn and Orla. We are both retired from the Irish public service. We enjoy travelling, golf, reading, walking and swimming. We love the outdoor life and we enjoy visiting and exploring new destinations across the world. We have completed seven home exchanges to date and thoroughly enjoyed every one of them.

    We have two grown up sons, one who lives in Ireland and the other lives with his family just south of Sydney, Australia. We visit our son in Sydney every year and while we are in Australia we like to take one or two 'holiday trips' of ten days to a fortnights duration. We have our home exchanges organised for 2016 but are open to offers of home exchanges in Australia or anywhere else in the world in 2017 or beyond. It does not have to be a simultaneous exchange. You can come to our home in Easkey at anytime, particularly during the European summer.

    Besides Australia we are also interested in exchanges in the USA, Canada, Europe or anywhere in the world – surprise us!!!
