A Holiday Home High on a Hill

Our house is situated on a hill overlooking an old estate which is now an 18 hole golfcourse. It is a new house with the living floor on the top, flooded with light, and a glass wall opening to a long view of green fields and woodlands. There are many things to do in this wonderful location twelve km from the medieval city of Kilkenny with its Norman castle, design centre, arts and crafts trail, and many restaurants and bars with live music and theatre. It is an ideal base for walking by the Nore river, horse-riding, and short drives to scenic locations. At the Castlecomer Discovery Park there is lake fishing, adventures for children such as the new tree walk, and you can experience the long coal mining history of the town in an interactive visitors' centre. And if all you want to do is play golf, heaven is five minutes walk down the hill! See the websites for the golf course and the Discovery Park at www.castlecomergolf.ie and www.discoverypark.ie

Informations sur la famille

We are two Irish born retired teachers who spent the past 42 years in Montreal Canada. We have returned to Ireland for the winter months for the past ten years and it is our house here we would like to exchange especially during the winter months. My husband is a writer and I am a ceramic artist. We love to travel. A short stay in almost any European city would interest us.

Le style de vie

We are an adventurous couple in our sixties. As well as traveling we love movies, classical music, theatre, reading and many other semi sedentary pastimes. We have three grown up children- two boys and a girl and we have three grandchildren all of which live in Montreal. We really enjoy being in Ireland during the winter as we are not avid skiers so we leave Montreal on the first of January and return on the first of May when the snow is gone. We feel very fortunate to have a lovely house in Castlecomer but we would like to take short trips to
Europe especially during the Winter.
