Accommodation with an Irish family >

At DLTC English Language school, students can choose to stay with a local Irish host family. It’s a great way to practise speaking English and to discover what life is like in an Irish home.

Irish host families are very welcoming and our students often comment how they feel at home and like one of the family!

Helpful Tip: While not necessary, we do suggest that students, particularly younger students, should have at least a little experience of being away from parents before – it helps relieve worry of parents and students.

What you can expect:

  • A welcoming and caring Irish host family that is carefully selected and visited by course director
  • Three healthy meals each day:
    • Breakfast: cereals, toast, fruit, tea/coffee/juice
    • Packed-lunch: fruit, sandwich, drink, crisps/bar
    • Dinner: pasta/rice/potatoes with meat and vegetables/salad with dessert
    • Vegetarian families are available and special dietary needs (coeliac etc) can be catered for (additional costs apply)
  • Wide range of families which are matched to students’ needs
  • Students aged 13-17 years (at time of the course start): only one student of each mother-tongue in each house unless you request otherwise (maximum 3 students per house)
  • Students aged 12 years (at the time of the course start): we may require students of this age to share their home with another student possibly of the same nationality/mother-tongue – this helps avoid problems of home-sickness, shyness and anxiety in younger students and encourages them to spend more time at home where they could interact more with the host family. (maximum 3 students per house)
  • Laundry once a week
  • Family details (including address, telephone numbers, names, ages and interests of the families) to be provided 3 weeks before arrival
  • Family will show student how to go to and from school on first day.

  • This homestay is very much an urban experience
  • Homes are all within 10-30 minutes of the school in safe, residential areas
  • Students travel to and from their host families each day on public transport (or on foot bepending on distance to school) and it is very safe, normal and easy to do so. Host families show students the best and safest way to travel.
Helpful Tip: If your child has never used public transport before, we suggest you give him/her a little experience of it in your own country before coming to Ireland – it will help with any worry that you or your child may feel. If you prefer your child not to use public transport, you should consider our course in Clare (West of Ireland).

  • This homestay is very much a rural experience
  • Homes are all in local towns or villages or in the countryside. Students can ask to stay in a village/town or out in the Irish countryside - many students are delighted to find themselves living on typical Irish farm! (Students who want to stay in a more rural location may also choose to have a friend stay with them in order to feel more comfortable.)
  • A private bus service brings students to and from home each day
