We are interested in an exchange for the last two weeks of October.

1 story house in Ballymote F56 X995, Co. Sligo, Ireland

This is a holiday home situated in the picturesque North-West region of Ireland and adjacent to the Wild Atlantic Way.The small city of Sligo is 20 kms away with lots of cultural and leisure activities. The local village of Ballymote is 4 kms away with lots of shops and even a small theatre. There are good hill walking possibilities nearby, the beaches are a short drive away and there are megalithic tombs in the area as well.
The house is a short drive to the Wild Atlantic Way which weaves along the beautiful west coast of Ireland(refer to website below).
The Sligo Camino is also easily accessible from the property and is 30 Kms. in length.
A climb to the top of Knocknarea, overlooking Sligo Bay, is a very rewarding experience along the recently opened Queen Maeve pathway.
Children and adults will enjoy a trip to nearby Lough Key forest park and the Zipit experience on the rope walks.
Co. Sligo is associated with the poet W.B. Yeats who reposes at Drumcliffe in the County and in whose honour an international summer school takes place each August in Sligo.
The house is just 45 kms. from Ireland West Knock Airport which is serviced by Ryanair from various U.K. cities and from a number of European cities as well.. It takes 2 hours to drive to the property from Dublin airport.
The house is very spacious with a very large and secure garden which is very suitable for children. We also have 6 bikes available for our guests. There are lots of quiet roads for cycling in the vicinity of the house.
Galway city is about 100kms to the south and Co. Donegal is easily accessible from the house as well.
We are interested in exchanges not only during summer but also at Easter and during other school holiday periods as well.A non-simultaneous exchange is also possible and we are also open to renting the house if preferred. As we have teenagers we are interested in a youth exchange to France for a boy of 17and a girl of 16.

We have been on many enjoyable exchanges to most countries in Western Europe over the past 20 years and also on one occasion to California. We can assure you that we will take great care of your house and car should you decide to exchange with us. We are actively seeking an exchange for June/July/Aug. of 2020 at the moment and we will consider all offers not just the countries that we have listed here.
In view of the COVID emergency we are seeking an exchange within Ireland at the moment.
