About Us

Hi, we are Helena, Colin, Damien and Rebecca from Thurles Co. Tipperary in Ireland. We would love to be a host family for the summer to some foreign students and would love to show them a part of Ireland so that they will learn and come to love Ireland. We have a fish tank, full of lots of unusual fish, we also have a dog called Scooby (after Scooby Doo the cartoon), he barks a lot but he is very shy too. Where we live is about a 10 minute drive from the town of Thurles. We are about and hour and half drive from the airport in Dublin city, so not too far away. We are close to Kilkenny which is a fabulous city full of lots of things to do there like the Kilkenny Castle and its grounds to walk around and there is a lovely discovery park in Kilkenny too which i know all children (and adults) love. Foodwise, in our house we cook mostly. The odd treat of a takeaway is acceptable from time to time but we do prefer to cook ourselves every day. Anything from Spagetti bolonaise to traditional Irish Cabbage Bacon and Spuds.
