House in Athlone, Ireland

Our house is in the Midlands of Ireland beside Lough Ree near Athlone town in the suburbs of Hodson Bay. Within walking distance is a Leisure Centre, a sailing school and Golf Club. We can provide a car, as well as a row boat and bicycles. We have a large garden, front and back with goal posts for football, and also have a table tennis table, pool table and the use of two sets of golf clubs. There is a decking area out the back.
The area is near the historic site of Clonmacnoise and there are other ruins of early christian monasteries to be seen on the islands of the lake. The town itself has an art gallery, riverside walks, cafes and restaurants as well as a swimming pool and bowling alley. There are buses to Galway and Dublin, on the hour and trains every couple of hours.
We seek to exchange houses with a French family ideally from a seaside area but not exclusively. We are happy to holiday anywhere in France. Our sons learn French in school so it would be a great experience for them to hear the language being spoken and to holiday anywhere in France. As teachers we are reasonably flexible with dates but our best time to travel is the first two weeks of August.

About Our Family

Our two young teenage sons enjoy football and keeping in touch with friends through facebook on their phones. I like a good book and a swim every day while on holidays and my husband enjoys maps and planning journeys to places of interest that are nearby for the family. Our home would suit a family that wants to stay in a pleasant, private and very safe setting that is near to many places of interest for day trips, It is a spacious place to relax too and suits children of all ages.
