Irish people have a tradition of hospitality and warmth. This tradition is renowned all over the world and has been a major factor in attracting thousands of students to study English in Ireland.

Quality Single Room Accommodation is a key focus at the Irish College of English. Malahide is one of Dublin’s most prestigious residential areas. We have host family accommodation within walking distance of our school, and we operate all year round.

Full board is provided with Breakfast, Packed Lunch and an Evening Meal. Students become members of the family for the duration of their stay and fit into normal family life, this means socialising and eating with the family.

We have a full time member of staff dedicated to visiting and ensuring the quality of our home stays. Student Welfare is our Main Concern and we choose our families very carefully to ensure maximum comfort. In addition we have a Home Stay Charter in place which sets out our standards and policies concerning study abroad host family accommodation. Students may be placed with other international students, thus developing new friendships with young people from all over the world. We can guarantee students an excellent host family stay.
