We're looking for 3 weeks exchange in July/August 2017, preferably a house with a garden. Car available for exchange.

3 weeks

Nice house in South Connemara, Galway, Ireland, 3km from the beach — looking for an exchange in France or Italy for 3 weeks during July-August 2017

Our home is situated in the Connemara region (in the West of Ireland) on a hectacre of heather and woods overlooking Galway Bay, 28 km west of Galway city. We are only 3 km from the seashore (8 minutes by car), with good beaches, supermarket, shops, playground, and pubs within 5 km. The countryside around the house is well served by country roads suitable for long walks. The house, recently rebuilt, has underfloor heating, an open fire in the sitting room, and a turf-burning range in the kitchen. Two of the bedrooms have attached bathrooms.
We have swings and slides in the garden, and plenty of toys for children, and a pool table and games for teenagers/adults.
Shannon airport is 1 hr 30 mins from our home, and Dublin Airport is 2 hrs 30 mins away.
We have four cats (all kept outside) and, if preferred, we can arrange for them to be fed daily.
