Accommodation with Irish host-families

Irish host-families become the first source of support for students. Living with a family in the host-country is a unique opportunity to get to know their life, customs and culture from within.

  • Irish families are rigorously vetted.
  • All families offer a stable, welcoming and safe environment.
  • We guarantee a continuous monitoring so that the student feels perfectly integrated, and we will always assign the family that best suits each of them.
  • Families host one student at a time, easing students' adaptation, and an affectionate home life, establishing lasting bonds of friendship.
