A beautiful house in Tralee, County Kerry near the Sea and Beaches.

Hello! We are the Cadogan family being Séamus, 58 (lawyer), Siobhan, (nurse), our son Jim aged 18 and our daughters Nóra aged 15 and Sadhbh aged 13. We love to travel ,and last Summer had our sixth wonderful home exchange when we exchanged brilliantly for a fortnight in New York. Sometimes Siobhan's sister comes on holiday with us too.

We have a large (430 sq. metres) detached house on a garden over one hectare in area. Our house is on the edge of a farm. It was built in 2008 to the highest specifications with four bedrooms(and a fifth which we keep closed), a kitchen, a livingroom, a sittingroom, utility rooms, three toilets, and a large garage. Our house overlooks the beautiful Slieve Mish mountains to the south, and Tralee Bay to the west. Although in the country, it is just a fifteen minute walk to the very centre of Tralee.

We have a car that we are willing to exchange. We own a cat (who lives outside,and is not allowed in the house at any time), and a rabbit and a goldfish,who would all like to be fed once each day. We do not invite an exchange with visitors with animals, for the only reason that those animals might not be welcomed by ours!If however you would prefer,then we will happily get a neighbour to call and feed them.(We own a dog,but he goes away too!).

Our house has every modern convenience. Our main bedroom has a bathroom en suite. We have wifi and televisions and a lovely piano. Our house has a lot of glass to maximise the panoramic views of Tralee Bay, and our big well kept lawns are perfect for fun and games. Our garage contains two adult road bicycles, three adult racing bicycles, and three children’s bicycles which can be used for cycling on the beautiful country roads that surround us. We have a barbecue,and a trampoline and a playhouse in the garden.We have birds in the trees,and lawns full of wild rabbits.The farm next door has cows and horses in the fields.

Tralee is the major town in County Kerry, and it is the gateway to the Dingle Peninsula and Killarney. It is ten miles from Kerry Airport, and sits at the foot of the Slieve Mish Mountains and Tralee Bay.It is 75 miles from both Cork Airport and Shannon Airport.It adjoins twenty miles of Ireland's finest beaches.Trip Adviser has named our local beach,Banna,as the best in Ireland.It is full of great pubs and restaurants and things to do.Kerry is considered to be the most beautiful county in Ireland.The Lonely Planet Guide for 2015 lists Kerry as the second best destination in all of Europe for a family holiday. As a busy shopping and commercial town Tralee boasts many activities for tourists including the National Folk Theatre of Ireland Siamsa Tire, a Championship Golf Course, and many attractions for day and night. Nearby is swimming and surfing, sea and river fishing, mountain walking, and the Wild Atlantic Way.
