About Mini Stays

For school groups, who have only a limited time available for travelling during the school term, the mini-stay is a wonderful way to get a flavour of Irish life, see the countryside and still have an opportunity to practice your English. Your group can choose to spent the entire time in one city and visit that area in-depth, or you can visit up to 3 different cities. In each one you will stay with host families, and although touring each day in the evenings you have the opportunity to discuss your day with the host family and find out a bit more about day-to-day life in Ireland.

Participants stay with host families, and are normally accommodated 2 or 3 per family, on a full board basis, with packed lunch at mid-day. The group is on excursion each day, We offer centres in Cork, Dublin, Limerick, Tralee, Killarney, Galway and Belfast, which means that your group can design a touring programme in almost any part of Ireland. The minimum stay with a family is 2 nights.

These programmes are ideally suited to school or university groups who want a cultural and touring experience but have only a limited budget. Unfortunately this programme is not suitable for individual bookings. If you would like to receive a quotation, please fill in this FORM and we will be happy to provide you with an estimate, without any obligation.
