The English & Farmstay Programme provides the unique opportunity for a full immersion experience, living with your own private teacher and family on their farm in Ireland. Students receive private English lessons from their own private teacher, farm activities and full board accommodation. Staying on a farm in Ireland really is a great way to learn English.
Experience life on an Irish farm, take part in the farm activities and enjoy the home cooking, fresh air and fine views of the beautiful Irish countryside.
Farm activities will vary depending on the farm but some examples are as follows: fruit picking, harvesting the vegetables, collecting eggs from the hens, feeding the farm animals, milking the cows/goats, haymaking, preparing the firewood, working in the garden, preparing bedding for the animals etc. Our English Courses on a farm in Ireland are different to any other English language experience.
Please note that the farmhouses are rustic and students should not expect a high standard of accommodation. They do however offer clean, comfortable accommodation and a charming country and outdoor lifestyle.
This option is for students who would like to experience the farmstay programme but do not require English lessons. It includes 10 hours of farm activities and full board accommodation.
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.
