summer accommodation


Irish people are renowned for their warmth and friendliness and our host families welcome our students into their home like another member of the family. Our families have a strong sense of community and enjoy teaching students the Irish way of life.

Our host families are an integral part of our programmes and what make us stand out. We have a full-time host family coordinator who is dedicated to recruiting the best families and regularly visits existing families to ensure high standards are being maintained.

We are in constant contact with our host families for the duration of the students┬┤ stay and our host families receive excellent feedback year after year.
