Welcome to Casa Maria!
We are a multicultural (Mexican and Irish) family living in a medium sized town in the midlands of Ireland. My name is Fiachra (Fee for short as nobody can pronounce it) and my wife’s name is Fatima. We have a 6 year old daughter Maria and a Hungarian Vizla called Cali.
I teach English, History and Sustainable Development to teenagers and adults and it would be an honour to show you our natural heritage steeped in history. Furthermore, I will be rolling out an Environmental Peace Program for the region. Fatima works with a local artist who tells stories of the land through art. We love horse-riding, art, music and nature. Our home is a 2 minute-walk from a swimming pool and gym and we would be delighted to drive you to attractions further afield.
We also have access to more rooms to rent for over 18s as they are not in the same house.
I am a qualified English language teacher with 15 years of experience teaching adults and teenagers.
We start our day with breakfast at 8. I usually teach an English class in the morning from 9.30-12.30 which you will be welcome to join. After 1 we have lunch at home and often head to the forest for walk or to the gym and swimming pool which is 2 minutes away.
In the evening we play boardgames, paint, watch movies and have dinner round 6pm.
Occasionally I teach afternoons (2-6pm) and evenings (6.30-9.30pm)
Once a week I travel to Dublin city centre and at weekends we go to the beach in Sligo or to Tayto Park for rollercoasters and magic shows.
I spent great days with Fiachra, Fatima and Maria ! Maria is a very funny girl. They were very warm, patient and attentive. I also discovered Irish culture with books, museums, food, movies, music... and improved my English. We often walked. Thank you Maria, Fatima and Fiachra !
