Interested in an Irish exchange this Summer Modern Two storey House with spectacular mountain and sea views. Intetested in Irish and European weekend exchange through out year.

 Less than an hour’s drive from Ireland's two major cities, Dublin and Belfast, Carlingford nestles between Slieve Foy, Carlingford Lough and the Mourne mountains. This medieval port village has a unique blend of natural beauty, spectacular landscapes, myths & legends combine with a modern day cultural infrastructure.
Our house was built in 2004 and is a modern dormer bungalow built with traditional Irish farmhouse influences. The house is situated at the base of Sleive Foy  Mountain and has panoramic views of the harbour, Lough and the Mourne Mountains.
All outdoor pursuits are catered for in the village, hiking, water activities, golf, horse riding, etc. The mountain behind our home has  become an official designated Area for the Protection of Little People by the European Union .Representatives from the commission have travelled to Carlingford to formally announce it as a 'Designated Area of Protection for Flora, Fauna, Wild Animals and Little People'(Leprechauns) under the EU Habitats Directive. There are several national award winning restaurants located within the village
