Homestay Immersion

Our homes are situated in the South of Ireland, in Kinsale, Clonakilty and throughout County Cork. Our host teachers’ backgrounds vary from professional and business to academic and artistic. However, they all have one common denominator qualified experience in teaching English as a foreign language and very warm, friendly personalities.

You will have 1 to 1 or 2 to 1 English lessons in your teacher’s home and your immersion will be specifically tailored to your personal needs. In addition, you will participate in Irish life and experience the real Ireland with your host family: listening to traditional music, making friends and soaking up the culture. You won’t be a tourist,  you’ll be one of us.
