Staying with a host family gives you an excellent opportunity to develop your language skills in a natural everyday context, and is a very popular option with our students. The host family experience is one of the best ways for students to encounter the world-famous Irish hospitality and discover Dublin’s lifestyle and culture.
Host family accommodation is available to both our junior and adult students in our Dublin locations with either a half-board option for our adults or full-board option for our juniors. Our families are carefully selected and monitored by our in-house accommodation team. Many of our host families have been a part of the Emerald experience for over 12 years, due to the dedicated assistance from our accommodation team and their ongoing communication with our homestay families.
Staying in family houses is quite a unique experience. It is very nice to feel as if we were home even when we are so far away from our real one! Our host family has been really nice to us and has made our experience in Ireland even better.
