We believe in giving you the complete language travel experience while you are in Ireland. Learning English should be more than just doing English lessons. Learning English can also mean having fun. On the Sports or Culture Programme you still receive the full immersion experience of living with and being taught by your own private teacher. This programme also includes intensive, one-to-one, English lessons. You will be totally isolated from your own language. You can practice your English as much as you like with your friendly Irish family.
The difference with this programme is that you can choose from a range of sports & cultural activities. We believe you should make the most of your time in Ireland. There is so much to do and experience!
The Irish culture has taken thousands of years to develop. Experience the history of Ireland with our historic sites tour. In Dublin, visit the ancient monastic site at Glendalough or New Grange passage grave in the Boyne Valley (depending on family location), visit Trinity College & the Book of Kells, and visit Dublin Castle and Cathedral. In Galway, visit Clonmacnoise, Birr Castle and Thor Ballylea, a 16th century Norman tower. Learn some traditional Irish cooking and get a taste of Ireland. Irish dancing has been made famous by the “Riverdance” and “Lord of the Dance” shows who have toured the world. Try some Irish dancing lessons in Limerick.
Our English & Sports Programme is designed for more active students who enjoy sports or outdoor activities. There is so much to do in Ireland. There is a large selection of sports to choose from:
The Sports Programme includes 3 sessions of sporting activities (unless otherwise mentioned), entrance fees and transport.
Closer supervision is designed for under 18s. We guarantee that the host teacher or an adult member of the family is at home at all times when the student is there. This guarantee does not include activities.
Dublin is the capital city of Ireland and has a population of 1.1 million. Because of extra costs for families who live in the capital city, placements of students with host families in the Dublin region requires an additional payment.
With this option, we guarantee that you will be placed with a host family where you will have access to your own private bathroom. (This option is included in the English for Business course.)
We can arrange a transfer from the nearest airport, station or seaport to your host family. N.B. Students under 16 MUST take 2-way transfers unless we are informed that they will be accompanied by their parents on arrival and departure.
This option can be selected if you wish to stay an extra night at beginning or end of your stay with your host family. It is only available on a full board basis.

My teacher encouraged me to talk and increased my confidence. My family was very friendly so I felt included in the family.
I was completely satisfied with my experience. It’s my first time I had an English language vacation but I am sure I will have another one.
