We are a working full time with 4 children, Joshua 13, Grace 10, Douglas 4 yrs 11 months and Ruaridh 2 years 9 months. Our animals include Sylvester the cat, blueberry the hen and Moscow the budgie! We are considering getting a dog in the next few weeks. They all live outdoors but visit indoors for short periods. Moscow lives in doors in his cage. We have lots of outdoor playing equipment - trampoline, swings, slide, goals and a large lawn for playing and relaxing .
Our home is in a beautiful setting in the country approx 6km from the local town - Thurles. Student rooms have a desk, wardrobe and a lovely comfortable bed, they also have an en-suite bathroom with a shower, bath toilet and wash basin or they share this with another student or family member. We are just 5 minutes drive from Thurles town centre and its shops, cinema, park, library, golf and squash club, swimming pool etc.
We have a large selection of arts and crafts. A guitar, keyboard and fiddle/violin are also available for anyone who wants to keep up with their instrumental practice.

We enjoy local historical / cultural trips for students and take pride in sharing Irish history and culture with our foreign visitors.
Our children enjoy horse-riding and swimming as a frequent activity.
