About
Avril I


We look forward to welcoming you to our home. We live in a particularly beautiful part of Dublin with wonderful facilities nearby. We have two children and two dogs. I have been lecturing and teaching throughout my life. We live close to tennis courts, riding stables and the sea. We are a 30-minute train journey from Dublin city centre. We have a single room or a large room for two students sharing. Our second home is in West Cork where we travel regularly. My husband is a music producer and has his studio there.

My daughter (2004) has a keen interest in ballet and loves horses. My son (1997) loves football and movies. My husband lives between here and his studio in West Cork. I have parents, siblings and their families who live very close by and visit us often.
