    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have been taking international students for over 15 years in the Reilly household, most come back to visit having greatly enjoyed their stay! On the smallholding we offer various opportunities to learn
    and improve new skills and hobbies such as beekeeping, looking after the animals, cooking, gardening and growing fruit and veg.

    I will provide a lift to and from town at weekends, One and half Hour trip by Bus to Dublin and Belfast from the local town.
    We are also approximately 2 hours by bus from the famous Giants Causeway. We also have a pool table in the garage. There is a beautiful lake nearby us, about 2 kilometres away where helpers can walk to and have a picnic,swim, etc. We also have a massive forest with walking routes in the local town, only 5 minutes drive away. We have had Foreign Students staying in our Home for fifteen years,a very enjoyable experience for us as a Family, and the Students also, most of them we still remain in contact with :)
