We have a baby (born in February 2018) so in spring/summer 2019 we'll be looking for somewhere easy to get to (Europe, Ireland, UK?). Ideally we'd like to exchange with a family that has a young child too, or one that understands the slight disorganisation a first child brings. Our ideal would be a small town or village on a train line in a house that we could walk to the bakery, park or beach. We are looking for a week or ten days in early August. If Irish exchangers are looking, it might suit as a base to settle a student into college.
Our central city house with private garden on a quiet Dublin street is near to all tourist attractions: St Patrick's Cathedral is at the end of the road. The family-sized house is ideal for discovering Dublin and Ireland.
The house is comfortable. There are 3 bedrooms (2 with double beds, one with a child's cot), and sofa bed in the living room if needed. It has all modern conveniences, plus a wood burning stove in the kitchen/diner, a (hot water) solar panel and fruit trees and bushes in the back garden. At the moment there is quite a lot of baby equipment. The street is a cul-de-sac so although the house is very central, it is on a quiet residential street.
We have no car - we walk or cycle everywhere in town. We would need an exchange either with good rail or bus connections (or for remote locations, the loan of a car, which of course we can't reciprocate).
We have two playful, affectionate cats.
