 Family information


I live with my wife and daughter in our family home. My wife is also a teacher and normally works with young children, she is a wonderful cook and loves to travel and see other parts of Ireland in her free time.

I love all sports from Irish Gaelic football, to rugby, to boxing, and keeping fit. I also love to play pool and have a pool table in my home in a downstairs room in my house. I enjoy exploring and travelling to new places both inside and outside of Ireland. I’m also a keen chess player and run a local club in my free time.

I also have a games room with a full size pool table, darts board and large flat screen TV, which is available to students to use as they please.

About the local area

Our house is situated in a lovely part of south Dublin next to Dun Laoghaire, a seaside town which has plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and parks. Dun Laoghaire pier, which is a short walk away, is a popular place for tourists and offers lovely views over Dublin Bay.
There are plenty of local excursions nearby to keep you entertained and by staying with me you will be immersed in Irish culture in a very short time. Ireland is known as the land of a hundred thousand welcomes or “cead mile failte” in Gaelic.
