About our home

We offer a large and comfortable country house in beautiful West Cork. We have four bedrooms, one with a large double bed and en-suite, two with double beds and one with two beds. We have a comfortable living room and sun-room and a large kitchen where all the family can eat. It is a spacious house with wooden floors, fireplace in the living room and wood-burning stove in the kitchen. There is a shower room and WC downstairs and a bathroom upstairs. The garden is large with football posts, swing set, trampoline, cart, and bikes. We have a lovely little stream running through the end of the garden which offers a beautiful retreat for reading and relaxation.


More about us

  1. We are Maire and Mark, a married couple with four children aged between 7 and 12. We are both professionals (bank manager and secondary school teacher) and enjoy travelling when able to get away. We have not done a home exchange before but are keen to try what sounds a great way to see another country as a resident - and allow someone to see yours. We would expect to arrange an exchange some way in advance in order to get to know our fellow exchangers via email first to see how best we can facilitate their stay in West Cork.
