Welcome to our comfortable home in western suburbs of lively Cork City.

Our house is spacious and comfortable, facing east for morning sun and west to capture the evening sun on the patio and in the large bright kitchen, where we spend most of our time. This room extends to the lounge area where we have a fireplace, Smart TV as well as books etc.
There is a sitting room which is a haven of calm. This is a quiet relaxing place, with fireplace.
We also have a den downstairs, with a 56 inch OLED TV.
Off the kitchen there's a utility room with washing machine, dryer and storage.
There is a downstairs WC, and upstairs there are two bathrooms. We have 4 bedrooms, 2 double, 2 single.
The entire house has been renovated in 2020.
Free wifi - Gas BBQ - Smart TVs - Netflix - Google Home

Our garden is small and overlooks the green. There are flowers and shrubs in bloom in the summer. Parking is in the drive or on the street outside. At the back of the house there is a very private patio with a small fountain, a BBQ, picnic table and sun loungers.
Kenley Drive is a quiet road with a group of houses surrounding a green, tucked away from the main road, so it's quite safe for children to play there.
As for us, we like to be near water when on summer holidays, preferably a beach or a community pool. We'd also like to be reasonably near night time entertainment - restaurants, pubs, outdoor cafes etc.
We are  interested in short term exchanges in Ireland and Europe, and longer exchanges worldwide. We are open to non-simultaneous exchanges. We want to visit family in Australia (Perth, Melbourne, Sydney), Auckland, in Dec 22/Jan 23. Ideally, we would like to arrange a series of exchanges that would coincide with our itinerary.
