About our home

Built in 1811 The Old Rectory is now a comfortable, spacious home in a beautiful parkland setting. Surrounded by farmland it is in a great location it is 45 minutes drive from Dublin and 10 minutes drive from Trim town with its norman castle set on the River Boyne. The Boyne Valley drive includes Newgrange which is a passage tomb dating to c3,200 BC (older than the pyramids!). We are 1 hour drive from the coast with long beaches for walking and swimming (wearing a wetsuit as the Atlantic is cold!). Golf and trout fishing are very popular, we are 5 minutes drive from Rathcore Golf Club

We like animals and have Suffolk sheep, three ponies, two cats, three chickens and two goldfish. We also have two dogs but these will be in kennels while we are away. We would like the family who swap with us to feed the cats, the goldfish and the chickens. The eggs will need to be collected and eaten, children often enjoy this job! The sheep and ponies just eat grass and a neighbour will check on them regularly.

More about us

  1. Frank works with a group of Regional Newspapers and likes golf

  2. We have two girls aged 11 and 9 years old. The eldest likes ponies and the younger girl loves cats.

  3. I enjoy working outside in the garden and grow organic vegetables. I also breed Suffolk sheep. We like good food and wine and prefer to buy locally grown produce. We are lucky in Ireland to have great grass fed beef, lamb and dairy produce.
