We live in a large country house built around 1760. We have been restoring the house and grounds over the last four years. We have a strong interest in 18th century architecture, the history of the country house and antiques. There will be an Opportunity to learn about Irish architecture and history. Maynooth also has an interesting history and is easy to cycle to. We have some students from Maynooth university living here.? Plenty of people here to practice English and learn about Irish culture. We cook dinner every evening. It’s also easy to visit Dublin or local sites during days off.
