Lovely House in Beautiful Tralee, Ireland
We are interested in an exchange for 2 weeks in July or August. Ideally, we are interested in exchanging with a house that is in a medium/large town or city (50,000+ people).
This year we are particularly interested in making an exchange with a home in a large town or city on the East Coast of the USA. (Florida or New York would be ideal!)
We live in a comfortable 4-bed house (Approx 180m2) in Tralee, a large town of approx 24,000 people. 10 minutes walking distance to town centre, restaruants, bars, shops etc. Ideal base for visiting other beautiful towns nearby such as scenic Killarney and Dingle. We are both teachers with 2 boys (Ages 14 and 12) and a girl (9 years).
Our House. First Floor: 4 bedrooms, 1 en-suite. 3 with double beds, 1 with Bunk Bed. 1 Bathroom (seperate from en-suite).
Ground Floor: Comfortable living room, Dining room, Kitchen, Toilet and childrens Play room. Garden with patio including table and chairs. Slide and swings in garden for the kids. Small outside garage. Parking in front of house.
