Beautiful Irish country home, by beach. Dublin Airport 20mins drive. Super location for discovering Ireland! Available Summer 2019 for home exchange.

Our home is in an idyllic country setting, set on a quiet country lane surrounded by beautiful Irish green fields, 1km from big safe sandy beach and short walk to shops, pub, cafe, restaurants, children's playground and train station. Only 10km from large town of Drogheda with super shopping malls, and 20 minute drive to Dublin airport and city. The area we live in is often called the "Gold Coast" for it magnificent beaches. Our house is situated on a private 3/4 acre site surrounded by fields and woodland. There are three Golf Courses within 5 minutes of our home. Our house is 6 minutes drive to the major motorway that links all Irish Cities.

We have a 2012 seven seater Peugeot 5008 (Automatic) with 'Hi Spec' features, and a Volvo V60 (Automatic).

The World Heritage Site "Newgrange" is 20kms from our house as well as Trim and Slane Castles. Ireland's largest Theme Park (Tayto Park) is a 30 min drive. Ireland's largest Waterpark is in our local town Drogheda. Drogheda is a wonderful Medieval town, with festivals, the Arts, Markets and Theatre. There are also many Summer Camps for children in our area.

This is an ideal base for discovering Dublin and its hinterland, while offering privacy and highly picturesque natural environment.

Our house has four bedrooms - three with double beds (one en-suite) and one with single bed. There is a large kitchen/dining room, living room with open fire and grand piano, study with wood burning stove, 2nd living room, downstairs toilet, upstairs family bathroom. 

Outside we have a wood burning oven and a gas barbecue for outdoor cooking and dining, a trampoline, and tree-swings. We have spectacular summer sunsets across open fields. In our garage with six bicycles and garden equipment. Our home has gardens on all sides which include a herb garden and orchard. We have a friendly, well mannered dog. We also have two kittens. Our dog and two cats are never allowed in house and live outdoors. We are surrounded by big fields that have beautiful horses.

About Our Family

Our family is Fergus (orchestral conductor), Maria (music teacher) and daughters Emily (15) and Jennifer (12). We also have a Golden Retriever dog (Georgie), two kittens and three hens that lay delicious eggs. We would be happy to have an exchange involving pet care.

We love travelling with our girls and have been many places, Africa, Phillipines, America, and all across Europe. We have done six home exchanges and found this a wonderful way to see the world.
 

Lifestyle

We the Sheil family love music, Fergus is a conductor of opera and Maria music teacher. Our daughters play piano, cello, violin and oboe. Emily loves horse-riding. We enjoy the outdoors and enjoying the beautiful countryside that surrounds us. Family cycles and walks. We love to barbeque in the summer months and take picnics on day trips. We have done five house exchanges to Spain (2016) Finland/Russia (2015) Spain (2014) California (2013) Italy (2011) Boston (2008).
