  • Description


    Hello, we are a family of 4 living in the beautiful west of Ireland. Near the sea, the mountains, the lovely town of Westport, one of the best places to live in Ireland. Plenty of music, lovely walks, cycling and plenty of friendly people. Our children are two lovely boys 12 & 9 years of age. Very independent and great fun. We live outside the town of Newport. There are other workways nearby so you will not be lonely!. We live in the country and have 9 acres of land. We do not cultivate it and keeping up with the garden is about as much as we can handle at the moment. We have hens, a dog and two cats. The sea is within walking distance, the beautiful Clew Bay. There are bikes available to cycle into Newport (a couple of miles away) where there are lovely pubs and shops. At home we speak both English and Spanish.
