About our home

Our home was built in the 1930's and has a very cosy feel to it. The kitchen was recently refurbished to include a large range cooker/oven, suitable for the cooking enthusiast! There are 3 main bedrooms upstairs (2 double beds and one single bed) and a 4th bedroom/ study with a double sofa bed downstairs. We have Wifi and cable TV, as well as a range of DVDs and books. The gardens, both front and rear, are private and well maintained and there is a gas BBQ with plenty of seating outside.

We can swap cars if you like.

As we live in Abu Dhabi for most of the year, our place there is also available for a swap. We have 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, balcony in our apartment with a large dining/ lounge area. 5 minutes from Grand Mosque and close proximity to all beaches. We live in a quiet area with a local feel, plenty of restaurants right next door.

More about us

  1. We are Anna (36, assistant professor), Shane (43, teacher), Jack (7) and Laila (6). We are looking for somewhere warm and sunny in Europe or further afield and close to the sea. For shorter breaks though we would love a city break. We love travelling and learning new languages. We have completed 4 house swaps (Seville, 2009; Cagliari, 2010; Annecy, 2011; Daimus, 2011) and love to travel this way.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

The house in Limerick is both urban and suburban! It is on a friendly street approx. 15 minutes walk from the city centre in Limerick. The city centre is full of lovely restaurants, pubs, cafes and clubs. Some to recommend are www.cafenoir.ie, www.azurrestaurant.ie, www.chocolatrestaurant.ie and www.trinityrooms.ie. A shopping centre (The Crescent) and supermarkets (Tesco, Lidl and Spar) are within 10 minutes walking distance. There is a friendly neighbourhood pub called Fennessy's within 3 minutes walk, as well as a traditional pub called Dolan's (www.dolanspub.com) within 10 minutes, so that you can listen to plenty of traditional music! Our home is located beside Mary Immaculate College, a campus of the University of Limerick. If you bring children, there are a range of summer courses on offer in the area which we can advise you about. www.eightball.ie gives details of events in the Limerick area.

We are located within 15 minutes walking distance from the train and bus station, which both offer excellent links to seaside towns in the area such as Kilkee and Lahinch (1 hr away). Dublin is 2 1/2 hrs by train, Cork is 1 hr away and Galway can be reached around 1 1/2 hours away. www.irishrail.ie and www.buseireann.ie are useful websites.
Visit www.shannonheritage.com for details about Bunratty Castle and Folk Park.

The apartment in Abu Dhabi is well located for all activities - Das Beach, Saadiyat Beach, Corniche beach, Ferrari World, Grand Mosque and so on. Abu Dhabi is 1,5 hours from both Dubai and Al Ain.
