“This was a classic swap in all respects. The communication organised by Samantha was thorough and friendly throughout the swap.. Car exchange was well planned, simple and effective. The house is beautiful and spacious set in a lovely countryside location. Quiet and peaceful yet only a 4 Km drive to the quaint town of Gorey. The house is homely and has everything needed for a comfortable self-catering holiday. The grounds are an adventure park for children with a treehouse, trampoline and zip wire to name but a few of the exciting activities available. Watching over the chickens and eating wonderfully fresh eggs is a major bonus! Gorey is a very interesting town with a traditional Main Street offering shopping, eating and entertainment. Further afield there are plenty of interesting places to visit on a day trip basis. A perfect location for a satisfying family holiday.”

Samantha's reviewsAs a host (6) As a guest (2)
“We had a lovely time in Samantha and Sean's home! It was a great change of pace for us, getting out to the countryside, collecting fresh eggs from the hens every day, and enjoying the calm of a quaint town in the heart of Ireland's farm country. Their home has everything you need, especially for kids, and communication was excellent throughout our stay (and very helpful!). We couldn't have asked for a better swap. Thanks again Sam and Sean!”
“We have just returned from a wonderful stay in Samantha and Sean house Samantha was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and kept in touch to make sure we had settled in ok and had left lovely gifts on arrival to their home and ours which was very welcome after a long journey Their home is spotlessly clean and comfortable with everything you need for a comfortable stay . Kids loved the trampoline zip wire and table football . We were located right beside Wexford finest strawberrry farm which we had most days for breakfast Their home is well located close to beautiful beaches and all Wexford’s scenic attractions but also close to Wicklow and Kildare so ideal location for touring . Since it was our first swap it could not have gone better and Samantha was a pleasure to swap with . We highly recommend Samantha and Sean for their great home and would love to return . ”
“We had a fantastic 1 week house swap with Samantha and Sean at their spacious home just outside Gorey. The house was clean and organised with all the towels and linen we could wish for. We found the beds comfy. The house is in a great location for visiting the many attractions in the area , only a fraction of which we got to , so we hope to return again in the future. Samantha was easily contactable and lovely to chat with and they left our home as they found it. Our hosts had arranged for the neighbour to water the garden every evening and take out the bin so we didn't need to. Our kids loved the go kart , the zipline and the trampoline, plenty to do outdoors as we were fortunate to have beautiful weather. We look forward to visiting Gorey again, and think there is something there for everyone , definately worth a swap with Samantha and Sean. ”
“We really enjoyed our stay with Samantha and Sean. There were the perfect hosts, providing us with a welcome gift and sharing great tips and advice. The house was very comfortable and clean. We would highly recommend them.”
“This was our first trip to Ireland. Beautiful countryside Incredible Long Secluded beaches with golden sand. The locals are super friendly and helpful, Drivers so polite. Litter free! So many places to visit to walk and experience. The very pretty town of Gorey is lovely, every shop one could wish for, restaurants, pubs and eateries. Samantha & Sean's home is excellent, very comfy and has everything one could wish for. Samantha & Sean are the kindest and most generous hosts. Leaving lovely little welcoming touches in their home. Communication was excellent, they were always ready to advise and help, sending very useful tips. Excellent, respectful guests in ours, leaving the home in perfect condition. I cannot recommend more highly this home for a swap.”
“All went well with Samantha and her family, communication was smooth and easy.”
“Samantha & her family were the perfect house guests! Communication was quick & easy, they were very respectful of the space & left the flat in perfect condition. A few goodies were left by Samantha to say thank you & show their appreciation, which was above & beyond but so lovely! I give them my highest recommendation & look forward to future swops!”

Where is it?
We live in a lovely area everything is at your doorstep here in Gorey . One of the main highlights of the location is how easily accessible our house is, the house is straight off the main Dublin motorway (M11 exit 22) which means we are only an hour from Dublin city center, 5 min from beaches, forest or mountain (your choice!!) 20 min from the world renowned spa Monart or 5 min from Seafield spa Ballymoney. Lots of local golf courses and buckets of history to discovery from the vikings to the 1916 rebellion. Family awarding winning hotel Amber Springs is located in Gorey, which has a soft play area, playground, swimming pool, kids clubs etc. Ballymoney beach is located 3 minutes drive form the house and is a beautiful beach that is well maintained. Pirates Cove in Courtown is located 7 minutes drive from the house and has crazy pirate golf, arcade games, bowling and lots more of family fun. The house is located close to Co Wicklow and you can access Glendalough which is a glacial valley in County Wicklow, Ireland, renowned for an Early Medieval monastic settlement founded in the 6th century by St Kevin.
