Home Stay

As we work closely with our host communities in Wexford and Birr towns our preferred accommodation option for students is home stay. We believe living with local families provides a more intimate and enriched cultural experience, and ensures that the financial benefits of your stay is filtered down to the community hosting you.

We look forward to finding you a suitable home for your time with us have access to wonderful families in all our locations who do their utmost to ensure you have a wonderful experience.  Students choose a home stay family if they like experiencing cultural differences, prefer getting to know local people and want to understand their way of life.  In very many instances, lifelong friendships are created. Staying in home stay includes full board, breakfast, packed lunch and an evening meal.

Our home stay is administered by a local home stay coordinator. They will place you in a home this is most suitable to your needs, matching you to your family based on a home stay form. Once you have been matched with a family, you will be sent a family information sheet so that you will have the address you will be staying at while in Ireland, and so that you may, if you wish, contact the family in advance of arrival.

Where students opt out of home stay accommodation as part of their tuition package, there are a range of accommodation options available in the towns of Wexford or Birr, which can be booked independently, to meet all budgets and requirements.
