  • Description


    We are an Irish family of 5 but 2 of our older boys are away from home just now.
    We live in the countryside about 7klms from Killaloe ( a small town/village) Co. Clare and on the River Shannon. Our home backs onto Lough Derg. Our youngest son is 16 yrs . We have a wonderful large house dog called "MEG". We are a friendly easy going lot and speak English and a tiny bit of French!
    There is loads to see and do around where we live. If you are an artist or like photography, walking, fishing, sailing, canoeing, Kayaking, horseriding or cycling and you are an easy going, tidy, responsible person over 21 years this is the place for you! Having own transport is a must. Being fond of the outdoors is a plus and can you be indifferent to weather!! This is Ireland after all......!
    We would love to hear from you. Various dates available in late 2014 and 2015....
