About us

Lovely family home on the edge of the Curragh in walking distance of Newbridge town.  Very busy house with 4 active boys! We have a wide range of sports we are involved with. Our 15 year old plays golf near the Curragh. It’s called the Curragh golf course and is the oldest golf course in Ireland. We have brought previous students on outings there. The Curragh park is close to our home. We regularly go on cycling trips, orienteering trips. We have basketball facilities close by, the boys are involved with. For anyone interested in swimming we have a pool near us we use. The boys play rugby and football and train regularly in our gym. We have a small gym and our students used it during the summer to keep up their fitness. We have outings to Galway or Dublin to sight see. We go hill walking , during the summer we took one of our students up the Slieve Bloom mountains. I run a small baking biscuit business. Our students get to do some baking and cooking. Trying out new foods and recipes . We like to go to the cinema near us and also bowling. . Tennis is also an option, the students played tennis with the boys and their friends. We encourage our students to let us know what they would like to spend time doing also
