Near Dublin - Maynooth, Co. Kildare, Ireland. We have booked our exchange for Summer 2022

Our fourth bedroom is an office where a camp bed can be added. We have one double couch bed in the dining room.

The kitchen has an electric cooker and dishwasher, the utility room has a washing machine and tumble drier, the dining room and a sitting room have comfortable seating areas. We have wifi internet and cable TV. As we have one twelve year old boy there are many toys available for your use. There is a playground and a nice park in the town. We have two adult bikes and one child's bike. We have camping equipment if you wish to use it. Our car is available - it is a Skoda Estate.
We are located in the pretty University town of Maynooth, which is 25km from Dublin City Centre. Maynooth is 30 mins by car to Dublin city centre and in the Dublin city bus and rail network so there are several bus routes (Dublin Bus) and commuter trains to Dublin city centre daily. The website has lots of information on the many tourist attractions in Dublin City. Maynooth itself is a lovely vibrant university town with many nice shops, hotels, restaurants and pubs. Maynooth is beside the M4/5/6 motorway which links to the West and North West of Ireland.
Our house is in the Moyglare Abbey estate and is about a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of Maynooth town. There are many major tourist attractions near to Maynooth, obviously Dublin with all its attractions but in the countryside around us you can visit Newgrange,Trim castle, the National Stud and Japanese gardens, the Boyne Valley and much more. See for some more info on Maynooth.
We are a family of two adults and one boy. We have done 15 successful exchanges to date and look forward to many more. We are interested in exchanging within Ireland as well as outside! We are ideally located for weekend visits to Dublin!
We look forward to hearing from you!

Maynooth is a lovely, picturesque, university town with many nice restaurants, hotels and bars. The town is very well serviced and has several shopping centres and one large retail park. The town is also near to the Liffey Valley shopping centre. Our house is in the Moyglare Abbey estate and it takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to the centre of Maynooth town. We are near the country side but also near to the train and bus stations with regular services to Dublin City. The Royal Canal goes through Maynooth and there is a park on the grounds of the college. There are numerous equestrian centres in the area. Maynooth is just off the M4/N4 motorway and near the M50 motorway and so it is a good location from which to explore the island of Ireland.
