We share the home with 2 pets, 1 small housedog (daisy) & 1 small cat (Jessie). We live in a small, safe housing estate of 60 housing approx. which has a fantastic residential & Neighbour watch committee. Our housing estate is in Waterford City, on a frequent bus route to Schools (5mins) and within (10mins) commute to the city centre. Waterford city has transport available daily both bus and rail to all the major cities in Ireland, including the Dublin (Capital). On the weekends/holidays and during our spare time we love to spend quality family time together, exploring the coast lines(beaches) and inland (mountains/lakes) within Waterford city an county. Waterford is situated on the south east coast of Ireland. This facilitates us with many outstanding beaches and glorious coastal drives. The majority of beaches are within a 15-20min drive from the city. Driving inland to the Mountain/lakes region, this is a 30-45min drive, both beautiful and scenic. We are available to host students from 11years of age onwards.
