About our home

Our house is in a rural location, approximately 5 minutes drive from the village of Miltown Malbay and 5 minutes drive from the beach at Spanish Point in County Clare, on the West coast of Ireland.

The house has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 sitting rooms and a large, well-equipped kitchen. Downstairs there is one double bedroom and upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms and one bedroom with 2 single beds. The 2 double bedrooms upstairs have ensuite showers. There is adequate space for 8 people, although 6 would probably be more comfortable.

The main sitting room has an open fireplace with satellite TV. Overall, the house is bright and spacious, set in a large garden, with plenty of parking space.

BBQ and garden furniture are available and there may be a possibility of providing surfing equipment, golf clubs and baby items if required.

There is a small self-contained house in the same site, which is generally sub-let, however the main house is offered for exchange.

A non-simultaneous exchange may be possible at other times of the year, except for Summer, when a simultaneous exchange would be more suitable. Car exchange also possible.


More about us

  1. The number in our travel party may vary, depending on the time of the year, the type of holiday and the size of the property on offer for exchange. We have stated that there will be 4 'travellers', which is normally my partner and I and may also be parents, other family members, etc. depending on the type of exchange.

    The size of property for exchange is not important, since sometimes I travel with my partner or a friend, and other times with a larger group of family members.

    We are experienced exchangers and have had 7 very enjoyable exchanges, without any problems or issues.

    A vehicle is essential for travel in Ireland and we can offer a vehicle for simultaneous exchanges.
