Welcome to Anne Marie's house !

Our family is me (Anne Marie) and my daughter Alex (11y/o) and our pets. We have dogs, cats and chickens. We also have ponies and horses with stables and an all weather riding arena onsite. We are in county Kildare which is beautiful and has lots of country activities. At weekends we go for fun rides on our ponies, do outdoor activities with Alex's friends and walk our dogs. Our local school which my daughter attends is less than 5 minutes drive away. We have availability for a student to come and attend school in Ireland. (under 13) https://www.ballyshannonschool.eu/

We are an active family and our home and stables are ideal for horse lovers. We have ponies and horses who are used to riders of different levels and an enclosed arena for riding. I am qualified to teach riding (free) and can bring guests to a local riding school where they will meet lots of other kids and can practice their English with different people. We also enjoy walking our dogs, cycling, playing tennis and going on the swings in our large garden. Our local secondary school is 5 minutes by car and students are dropped and collected daily. Our Primary school is ten minutes by car (up to 13 years old) .

Proposed activities:

A typical day with us

I get up first and feed the animals. Alex gets up at 8am and during the week goes to school at 8.45am. I collect Alex from School at 2.40pm. She does her homework and has a snack. I finish work at 4pm and then we ride the ponies. Alex has weekly activities: Monday she has Athletics, Wednesday Swimming lesson, Friday riding lesson and weekend she rides out with friends, goes to a show or has friends over. We have dinner around 6pm once all the animals are fed and secure for the night. Alex enjoys doing crafts, playing computer games and playing with her friends.

Notre fille a séjourné chez Anne Marie et sa fille Alex au mois d'août et est revenue enchantée de son séjour. Elle a pu monter à cheval et faire de nombreuses activités (musée, Dublin horse show, visite de Dublin). Anne Marie donne régulièrement des nouvelles avec vidéo et photos et est très attentive au bien être de ses hôtes. Une très belle expérience pour un premier séjour linguistique qui sera surement réitéré.

Mathieu vient de passer 2 semaines chez Anne Marie et il est enchanté de son séjour : les meilleures vacances du monde ! Il a fait du cheval, jouer avec les chiens, les chats et…les poules et a pu se baigner dans une rivière et à la mer (avec un certain courage, il faut le reconnaitre). Anne Marie s’est occupée de lui comme de son fils et il a été parfaitement intégré dans la famille et avec les amis. Une expérience à recommencer ! Merci Anne Marie!

Ma fille a passé deux semaines en juillet chez Anne Marie où elle a été accueillie comme un membre de la famille. Anne Marie est une véritable "Maman" d'accueil ! Elle s'est montrée attentive et attentionnée en toutes occasions. Ma fille a eu le covid peu après son arrivée (sans doute contaminée dans l'avion) et Anne Marie s'est parfaitement occupée d'elle, nous donnant régulièrement des nouvelles... Anne Marie et sa fille Alex vivent au milieu des chevaux, la maison et le cadre autour sont très agréables... Ma fille a vécu une très belle expérience... Merci :-)
