Our students stay with host families in Clondalkin, Tallaght, Lucan and Palmerstown during their stay. Daily transport is provided to the college for those not staying within walking distance of the college. The host family provides breakfast, a packed lunch and dinner.
Staying with a host family is a very valuable part of the learning process, helping the student to become totally immersed in the English language, and also providing a useful insight into the Irish way of life.
Families are chosen for the warmth of their welcome and the standard of their accommodation. Many of our families have welcomed students several times and long-lasting friendships are often established.
There is on-going communication between the college administration and host families. Group leaders accompanying students are welcome to meet the Irish families. Great care is taken by the college to ensure the welfare and happiness of the students during their visit.
