  • Description


    Hi there! I live in a three bed-roomed house with a small garden in Templemore, Co. Tipperary with my 13 year old daughter Kim and our small dog, Coco. Templemore is a small but busy little town right in the heart of Ireland with a train station, within easy access to all major routes around the country. We speak English, French amd a little Spanish and German too. There is a beautiful park here, lots of nice pubs and cafés all within walking distance of my home. We love movie nights and have a comfy sitting room with a piano that you are more than welcome to play!

    In Templemore I love to go to the singing circles in our local pubs and to listen to the local talent do live music gigs as often as possible.

Having travelled a lot myself I am very open to other cultures and absolutely love to make people feel welcome, included and "a part of the furniture" in my home.

    Single room in a family home.
    There is a small but roomy wardrobe, desk and small shelves for knickknqcks and is directly across from the main bathroom. We have a good electric shower and a bath.
    We love food of all kinds and are happy to share and eat the main meal together in the evening. The kitchen usually has plenty of veg and fruit and staples for lunch and breakfast. We ask just some help in the evening with clean up if we eat together and to keep the main kitchen tidy after other use.
