“Our exchange with John and Caitriona was great ! It was their first time, but we can say that everything was perfect. House had got lot of information and recommendations. Very good comunication with them from the first email, they are very friendly and charm. Everything was very easy. I miss words to said how is the house in Kinsale, one of the most beautiful I have ever seen, breakfast front of the bay of Kinsale, wonderfull garden, nice views, all you need is in the house... Kinsale is a beautiful town, Thera are very good restaurants, nice pubs to drink a beer with direct music. It’s a good locality because lot of places are not very far from it. You can drive to lot of places in one hour by car. Plenty of beachs are very near this area too. We enjoyed Ireland very much. They prepared every details of our stay and we felt very welcome in their house. We found our home just like we let it! THANK YOU AGAIN! So what can i say more ? If you want to discover nice people, nice country and tasty beer, go ! go ! go ! Joan & Eulàlia”
John's reviewsAs a host (4)
“We enjoyed an excellent house swap with John and Caitriona. They have a very nice house with a large terrace offering excellent views. The house is very well set up for kids with plenty of toys and amenities. It's also nicely located within walking distance of Kinsale, albeit up a steep hill. John was also very helpful in offering guidance on places to visit during our trip. On returning they left our house in great condition and overall it made for a seamless and hassle free holiday. I would highly recommend a house swap with John and his family.”
