Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Lonely Planet declares Belfast & the Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland the Number One Region in the world to visit in 2018. Our 3 bedroomed, detached, south facing modern bungalow, is in a quiet cul-de-sac. It is decorated to a high standard, sleeps 5/6 comfortably, has fully equipped kitchen and utility, lounge, TV room, conservatory, office, ensuite, bathroom, gas central heating, large back garden with BBQ, table and chairs and a large driveway for cars.
We are 10 miles outside Belfast and 100 miles from Dublin. There is a train station 2 miles away.
There are lots of walks close by. You can go up the hills to the Dam, along the seafront in Whitehead, or further afield up the Antrim coast.
In Belfast there is the famous Titanic centre and in the city centre there are lots of bars and restaurants.
Up at the very top of N. Ireland is GIANTS causeway and BUSHMILLS whiskey, about 1and1/2 hours drive.
