Irish Host Family programs
Visit Ireland, Learn English, Explore Irish culture
Travelling abroad to learn a language is an important decision. The easiest way to learn a language is to be totally immersed in the language. We offer a place where they can feel safe secure and learn without judgement or fear of failure. Not only can they enjoy a fulfilling learning experience outside of the classroom, but they can also have an exciting and authentic experience of Ireland, far exceeding that of an ordinary tourist.
Why Choose Us? If you want to visit Ireland, learn English, experience Irish life and culture, we are happy to help arrange your homestay in Ireland, assist with language lessons,summer camps or arrange trips and activities.
Our Irish host families are personally selected by our staff to meet the needs and preferences of the participant. Time and care is dedicated to ensure that the profile of the candidate is matched to that of the host family.
We offer home stays in a variety of locations throughout Ireland, but the majority of our host families are in Co. Galway, on the west coast of Ireland. Many of our families live in rural areas and in small villages which offers a contrast to the lifestyles experienced at home by our International students and is indeed part of the unique charm of Ireland and our homestay programme.
For International exchange students, living with an Irish Host Family offers security, friendship and the unique daily experience of learning English. In our language immersion programmes International students are integrated into the life of their host Irish family. They live as one of the family, taking part in many social, cultural and sporting events. The daily events encountered by foreign students can offer great opportunities for improving both oral and aural English language skills.
Our families offer a 'Home away from Home' for a chilldren aged 12-17. We have many years of working with International Exchange students and bring our experience and expertise to tailor a stay to meet your needs.
We offer flexible dates of arrival and departure. Contact us and we will arrange a personalised school stay, homestay, or summer camp to meet your needs.
We are registered with An Garda Siochana to carry out 'Garda Vetting' of our host families.
