  • ALWAYS individual room
  • ALWAYS with an Irish `brother´ or `sister´ of the similar age and with the same hobbies as our student.
  • Only one student of any nationality is placed in a family unless an alternative arrangement is requested.
  • Families interact with the students and guarantee improvement in English.

Activities

Sport, leisure and excursions.

  • After-school activities are held in the afternoons (football, canoeing, climbing, surfing, cinema, mountain biking, mini golf, etc. + cultural visits).
  • Friday discos, organised by EGA, in Killarney´s best night club
  • Saturdays are full day excursions.
  • Sundays are family days. Our families will organise all Sunday activities.
  • Midweek full day outing.

Host Family Time

Once classes and activities are finished, the students are taken back home to their families by private transport organised by EGA. Living with the family is the best option for practising English and learning about local culture and traditions. The family homes are spread over a wide area making it almost impossible to meet students of the same nationality.

Our families are responsible for the entertainment of the student and weekend planning. Our students are always placed in the same house with an Irish brother / sister of the similar  age and with the same hobbies. The families will have constant interaction with the student and they will  always be treated as a member of the family.

Transfers: group or individual transfer available (Dublin, Cork airports).
