Host family

Host family chooses you according to your application and therefore assume that you will fit into their family.

In Ireland host families get a small compensation for hosting an exchange student to cover the extra expenses. The compensation is not significant, so you can be sure, that the host family is genuinely interested in hosting a foreign exchange student. The families go through a similar process as do our exchange students.

Your host family will live in the Monaghan, Cavan, Athlone or Cork area. They have chosen you as their exchange student according to the knowledge you have written in your application. Therefore be honest in your hobbies and interests, don’t exaggerate but don’t leave anything unmentioned either.

Irish people are very friendly and familyoriented and they will surely welcome you with open arms to their family. You will soon feel yourself at home with these humorous and easy-going Irish folk.

Your host family will be your closest support during your exchange year in Ireland, so it is important to spend time with them and keep them posted on how you are doing.
