About our home

Would you like to visit Ireland and spend some time exploring the west coast of Ireland? We can offer our new holiday home in Galway for simultaneous and non-simultaneous exchanges. Our Galway home is in a rural setting located 40 minutes drive from the city centre of Galway so hiring a car from Dublin would be essential. The drive from Dublin Airport is 2 hours. The house is located 10 minutes drive to the busy town of Mountbellew where there are supermarkets, pubs, Churches, pizza bar, restaurants and coffee shops. We are very strictly NO PETS and NO SMOKING people and would be interested in an exchanges where there are no cats or dogs to care for. We especially like to be close to the public transport systems as we don't drive except in Ireland. We love buses, trains and ferries. We have had three very successful exchanges in 2013, 2014 and 2016 in Sydney, Brisbane and Spain. We are now planning our next trip to Australia from March to the end of May 2017 and would love to hear from you. Our house in County Galway is our holiday home so we are very flexible with dates. The exchange site is a very exciting and a valuable resource and we are grateful for it. Without it and the lovely people we met through the site, we could never dream of a long holiday in Australia. Thank you. Maura.

More about us

  1. We are Maura and David and we travel extensively when possible to do so. We live in County Meath, Ireland which is about 30 minutes drive from Dublin City Centre. We are open to non-simultaneous exchanges. We love everywhere - and we would like to spend a month in Australia - mainly Sydney. We totally rely on public transport when abroad so we would only be able to consider exchanges which are located within a walking distance of a bus or train service. We are strictly non-smokers and have no pets. We consider ourselves house-proud so our house are in pristine condition and we will look after other people's residence exactly as we do our own. We prefer two travellers only if possible. We would love to hear from you and thanks to all who have contacted us to date. We have been very blessed in all our exchanges so far and look forward to many more. Thank you for your interest. Maura and David Butler.

Where is it?


Our holiday bungalow is situated in rural Ireland located 12 minutes drive to motorway and from there 40 minutes drive to Galway city. It is 20 minutes drive from the heritage town of Athenry. The house is situated outside a small country village, Gorteen on the Mountbellew road. The house can be used as a centrepoint to access and explore the Atlantic Coast of Ireland: Connemara, Alawee Caves, Aran Islands, Kylemore Abbey, Cliffs of Moher, The Burren, Inisfree, Croagh Patrick and lots more. There are coach tours to these various attractions available daily from Galway city. The best option is to fly to Dublin and rent a car for travelling onward to Galway. Best months to travel Ireland are from April to September but our house is available all year round. Exchanges do not have to be simultaneous.
