Family home in beautiful Donegal

House 6 3 3
About Our Home
House swap in beautiful Donegal, Ireland available. We are an Irish couple keen to spend some time with family in Sydney and are making our home available for a house swap. We are flexible with dates, any time preferably between July 2013 and January 2014 and are flexible with time – preferably for at least 6 weeks. The house is three bedroom, all with built in wardrobes, and three toilets and two bathrooms (one en-suite.), and one toilet downstairs. You will have full use of the house and garden. There is a fully-equipped kitchen with all mod-cons, a conservatory, three double bedoroms with built-in wardrobes, a back garden with barbecue and seating area with beautiful views over the Donegal hills. We live five minutes from the Northern Ireland border and ten minutes from Derry/Londonderry, Northern Ireland, the 2013 UK City of Culture – where there will be lots of festivals, events, concerts and cultural celebration throughout the year (so a great time to be in Donegal!) We are a ten minute drive to University of Ulster, Magee and 40 minutes to University of Ulster’s Coleraine Campus. We live 5 minutes from the beautiful Inch Island, Burt, 15 minutes to Buncrana and 20 minutes to some of the best golf courses in Ireland. Beautiful beaches are literally on our doorstep. Belfast (the capital of Northern Ireland) is a 90 minute drive away and Dublin is around 3.5/4 hours (Ireland is tiny compared to Australia!) Cork is around an 8 hours’ drive and Galway 4-5 hours. Basically, anywhere is pretty accessible.
