About our home

We have a 4 bedroom bungalow with a big garden. It is in the countryside but only a 5 min walk to the small town of Miltown Malbay. The house is very bright and spacious with great views of the sea and surrounding countryside. In the summer there are often cattle in the fields around the house. It has central heating. There are 4 big bedrooms, 2 of them en-suite. The kitchen has all mod cons and has an adjoining living room. There is also a living room upstairs with TV and open fire.

More about us

  1. We are Francis and Eileen.
    We are 50 and 47 years of age. We have no children but if you are a family with small children who would like to swap with us we have a supply of cots,high chairs and toys that we use when our family and friends come to visit. Francis works as an electrician and Eileen works as a pharmacist. We love travelling. If anybody wishes to swap with us, we would make our car available to them, since public transport is not very accessible in rural Ireland. We would not necessarily want a car in exchange. As we are only 2 travellers we are very happy to swap with smaller accommodation offers. We have a travel file prepared from previous house swaps with information on the local area and best beaches and drives etc. We are interested in all destinations. So far we have had amazing house swaps in Lanzarote, Vancouver Island, Costa Rica, Slovenia, Alabama, Mexico and Copenhagen,Taiwan and Bali. We love to travel and we promise to look after your home.

    Enjoy your travels

    Eileen and Francis Lynch

Where is it?


We live in the west of Ireland by the sea and 5 mins walk from the village of Miltown Malbay. It is a beautiful part of the country with many uncrowded beaches and lots of attractions for tourists. The village is small but has shops, restaurants,a bakery and lots of pubs. It is very famous for its traditional music and there is a live traditional session every night in town.
We are about 50 mins from Shannon airport which is well connected with Europe and the States. In the surrounding area there are many famous attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, the Aran Islands, and Bunratty Castle. There are also many beautiful golf courses located in County Clare such as Lahinch and Doonbeg etc. We are also only a short drive from the cities of Limerick (1hr)and Galway (1.5hrs)and are 40 minutes from the ferry service to County Kerry. Dublin is 3 hours away by motorway from Ennis. There are many beaches within a few miles of our house the closest being Spanishpoint(2 miles) and Whitestrand (1 mile) which has a beautiful headland walk. Previous house swappers have found the towns' people to be very friendly and easy-going.
