Fantastic opportunity to pick your own host family in Ireland. We have 5 years experience hosting students from across the globe for both short and long term breaks in our home in Co Cork Ireland. Host rate included meals, broadband, satellite tv, sight seeing trips and gym membership!
We are a very active, out going couple who have a love for the outdoors, roadtrips, cinema and food. Our previous hosting experience aids us to assist our guests through the initial settling period, as we know at times, there's no place like home. We always take pride in the achievements of our students, regardless of what grade of english they arrive with, there's always improvement!
Our town is very scenic and is famous for hillwalking festivals and international horseshows. You will experience the green fields of Ireland in our locality and we are a short walk from the town which has a large school, gym, pitch & putt, running track, coffee shop and bars. Cork City is a short commute, which we travel to daily should you wish to explore or meet friends. We are also only a short drive or train ride from the famous historic sites of Killarney and The Blarney Stone.
At the weekends, we always do movie night with plenty of chocolate, pizza and popcorn! We welcome others to share our home, lives and hobbies and hope the experience brings years of happy memories. We encourage everyone to join in our international meal nights where people can share tasty receipes from home.
We have a large spacious home full of energy and a garden where you can enjoy the company of our dogs, have friends over and maybe a bbq - weather permitting, sun is not always plentiful in Ireland. We've 2 rescue dogs, Timmy and Jess who live outdoors. We feel sharing family meals are important, as it's an opportunity to discuss the days events. Our families and friends live very nearby. We encourgage you to engage, interact, communicate with everyone! Learning happens from conversing and meeting people and daily routine activities.
We welcome individuals, friends and groups. If you wish to travel with companions or in a group more than 3, we have discount rates
