“We highly recommend an exchange with them . It was SUCH a success! Deirdre and her family were fabulously welcoming and did everything to make sure we had a great time in Ireland .The location is great just between Galway and the Connemara park 2 minutes from the sea. We have seen so many incredible things in a week... We have 4 children (16 , 14 ,13 and nearly 3)(recomposed family) and I can say each single member of the family came back absolutely delighted. I just tell you , you would be lucky to exchange with them .”

Where is it?
We live at the end of a quiet country lane, just before Spiddal village, with stunning panoramic views of Galway Bay and the Burren in Co. Clare. Spiddal is 12 miles west of Galway city in South Connemara and beautifully located overlooking Galway Bay and the Aran islands. Spiddal is in an Irish speaking region of Ireland know as An Gaeltacht where students come to learn the Irish language, culture and traditions.
Spiddal beach is only 1.6 km from our house and boasts a beautiful promenade. Spiddal village has many fine pubs and restaurants with shops and a post office also. Spiddal Craft Centre (www.ceardlann.com) is where you can see crafts being made and gives a rare opportunity to buy unique handmade gifts directly from the skilled Artisans themselves. Consisting of a range of workshops, including candle making, leather work, pottery, screen-printing, weaving, celtic jewellery, bodhrán making, wood-turning and a Restaurant. Our house is a mere 1.7 km trip to this lovely craft centre.
