Irish people have a reputation for being friendly and welcoming – the traditional Gaelic greeting is “céad míle fáilte” – one hundred thousand welcomes – and staying with a family gives you an opportunity to experience this warm welcome first hand.

Staying with a Host family

Staying with a host family is one of the best ways to really understand a country and its people and it is a great opportunity to practice and develop your spoken English. Our carefully chosen host families will do their best to make you feel at home and like one of the family. Breakfast and dinner are taken with the family and lunch is normally a packed lunch.It may be possible to have a single room, but it is more normally that you would be sharing a twin room with another student.

Naturally you too will be expected to play your part and to do your best to adapt to the rhythm of the family’s life which may be different from your own. But remember, different does not mean better or worse,it is just a different way of living, once you understand that,you will be able to enjoy the experience and benefit most from it.

Staying with a host family is a great way to practice your English and to find out at first hand what life is like in Ireland. Our families are carefully selected for their friendliness and warmth and genuine desire to make your stay in Ireland a happy and successful one.Accommodation is normally on a full board basis (packed lunch provided for mid-day meal)
and you can expect to have another student of a different mother tongue in the family at the same time, in twin room accommodation.

Families provide all meals and will undertake a reasonable amount of personal laundry with the family wash.
