Dublin City

Hello. We live in Dublin City in a quiet and peaceful Neighbourhood that is close to the mountains, the beach and also the city. We love it here and have a big beautiful garden with many plants, a terrace and a trampoline and swings. Yet we are close to the city centre. If you don't want to drive, there is a very good tram and bus service that will take you to city centre in 20 mins (pubs, music, theatre, culture). Our house is modern and comfortable 'open plan' downstairs and is very suitable for a family.  First bedroom has a double bed, 2nd bedroom has twin beds and the third bedroom has a platform bed and we can add another underneath if required. We are within walking distance to University college Dublin (language classes). While a car would be good for longer trips, it is not a necessity.  Apart from the city we are a short bus ride to the coast and the mountains.  Our immediate neighbourhood has shops, banks, restaurants, cinema, bowling and pubs. There is a park beside us with a children's playground.   Dublin airport is easily accessible.

The South Dublin coastline has some lovely beaches for swimming and walking. Dalkey is a lovely village with interesting shops and cafes. dalkeyphotos.com
Sandycove is a lovely safe beach for small children to paddle in the water and play in the sand.  it also has great rocks for diving for older children.  Dun Laoighre has courses in sailing, etc. The coast is very close to our house.  15 mins by car or 25 mins by bus. Dun-laoghaire is a great coastal town with lovely walks, great pubs and shopping.   dun-laoghaire.com
We are also close to the mountains in Wicklow, which is called 'the garden of ireland' and where there are beautiful walks and scenic villages such as Enniskerry, Avoca and Avondale.
We are 8 mins walk to the 'Luas', a tram that takes you to city in 20 mins.  Dublin is a great city for culture, from museums to music, great pubs and fantastic night life...(for those of you who don't have children!)
There are many festivals that take place around Dublin.

About Our Family

Des is a creative director in an advertising agency and Mary is a Drama Psychotherapist.  Our adult son Eoin, who is studying English and Philosophy in UCD, is football crazy and follows Manchester Utd.  We have an 8 year old daughter, Sofia.  Des has recently discovered cooking and likes to experiment with new foods.  We enjoy walking, reading, playing cards and just love to sit in cafes and watch the world go by.
We have exchanged 6 times to Switzerland, Austria (twice), France (twice) and Spain and have truly enjoyed each experience.  Intervac exchanges have been our nicest holidays. 
We have two cats who mostly stay outdoors but sleep in our conservatory. They are very easy to mind and keep themselves to themselves.
We look forward to our next exchange.....perhaps with you!
