More about us

  1. There are six in our family, Dominic, Breda and four girls; Laoise (17), Ciara (15), Eabha (11) and Doireann (6). Breda works as a primary school teacher, Dominic as a plumber. We completed our fifth exchange last year, all of which we have really enjoyed. We travelled quite a lot before starting a family and mostly holidayed in Ireland when the children were younger. Since starting home exchange we have enjoyed travelling a little further afield and viewing our holiday location from a resident's perspective.
