About our home

Our house is a spacious family home set on 0.75 acres in the heart of Quin village. It has a large private back garden with patio area and trampoline. Our favorite room is the sun room where we like to listen to music and read the Sunday papers. Our boys also use this as their playroom. The dining area with stove opens onto the kitchen which adjoins the comfy family/TV room. We like to retire to the lounge in the evening which has a wood pellet stove for those chilly evenings. The master bedroom is en suite and has a super king bed. The guest bedroom is also en suite and has a king size bed. There is another double bedroom as well as a twin bedroom which our boys like to share. There is also a family bathroom with bath. We like to cycle and have two adult and children's bikes available. We also have a bike carrier which sits on the hitch for easy transport of bikes.

More about us

  1. We are a professional couple with two boys aged 9 and 11. We love living in this friendly village. We are an active family and like to travel and see new places.We had two very successful exchanges to France in 2014 and 2015. We visited France again in 2017 and stayed with extended family on a campsite. We really look forward to our next home exchange hopefully in Summer 2019 probably somewhere in Europe.

  2. I am a pharmacist and my husband is a freelance consultant.

  3. We love the great outdoors and enjoy cycling on the quiet country roads. We also have a great appreciation for food and look forward to trying local cuisine.

Where is it?


We are located at the end of a quiet cul de sac in the heart of the historic village of Quin with our beautiful abbey dating back to the 15th century. There are four pubs one restaurant and a pharmacy in the village. A small playground is less than 5 minutes walk away. Its horse country and there is plenty of riding available locally. Dromoland castle is a short drive away. Craggaunowen an archaeological open air museum is ten minutes away while Bunratty castle and folk park is less than 20 minutes away. Bustling Ennis town a ten minute drive away has a good market on Friday and Saturday mornings a great opportunity to sample some local cheeses! The Burren geopark with it's lunar landscape is a wonderful place to explore and hike. While there visit the Cliffs of Moher the tallest sea cliffs in Europe. Take a trip to the Aran islands from Doolin pier it s like stepping back in time. Galway city is less than an hour to the north and Limerick just 30 minutes to the south.
