About our home

**For Summer 2020 due to the global pandemic - we will most likely be looking for a 'Staycation' house swap with a family in Ireland.
We are ideally looking for a full 2 week period either in July or Aug 2020 (anytime up to 16th August 2020).
We are open to offers and would consider anyplace within Ireland for this very unprecedented year globally.

We have a renovated and newly extended our traditional bungalow (1750 sq ft) in the townland called Polleeney which is in Furbo, just 9kms outside Galway City. This is the very start of the region of Connemara, our home is nestled quietly in a designated Natural Heritage Bog Area so the surrounding environment is beautiful bogland - though we still are only 2kms (5 mins drive) to stunning beaches and the wonderful coastline of Galway Bay (Wild Atlantic Way). Our home is a central distance between Galway City and Spiddal, so we are in a little village called Furbo. It is the perfect location for a West of Ireland getaway, being very close to Galway City (9kms), and in South Connemara itself. It is a super location for accessing everything that the Wild Atlantic Way has to offer. www.wildatlanticway.com as well as all the activities and festivals that Galway City hold during the Summer https://www.giaf.ie/

Practicalities of our home:
1st Floor (Up stairs)
Large Master Bedroom (with countryside and sea views) with a seating area and large windows
Modern shower/toilet (adults bathroom)
Open plan art/office space (with option of single bed available as a 5th bedroom)

Ground Floor:
Large airy living/sitting room with double doors into a large garden.
Open plan kitchen/dining room
Family Bathroom (Kids bathroom)
3 individual kids bedrooms
(1 with a standard double bed)
(1 with single loft style bed -raised bed)
(1 small bedroom with standard single bed)

Large garden (0.5 acre site/0.20 hectacre) with 14ft trampoline

As we have 3 children there are bikes/scooters and an array of board games/lego etc.... our girls are all very happy to share their toys.
