The Murphy Family

Kildare, Ireland

About us

Very active and busy family living in a small town, 30 mins drive approx, from Dublin city (suburb). Both parents work, mam works part-time and takes leave over the summer. All children are involved in sports, dance and drama and love to be out and about being active. We have had many au pairs and university Erasmus students living with us in the past so are very happy to have a guest staying with us and like to include them as part of the family. They will hang out with our own children and if they are doing camps they are welcome to attend with them. They can come on day trips, visit the beach, walk the dog, travel with us at weekends etc. (We like to camp if the weather is good). Happy to take our visitors on day trips to tourist attractions in Dublin or the surrounding areas.
