You get to choose between the following two accommodation options:

Students residence
The residence is located in the Bishopstown district, three kilometers from the Cork city center. Throughout the year, students from the Cork Institute of Technology live here, making the property ideal for young people to learn, rest and chat. You live in a twin room, full board.

Irish host family
The host families are carefully selected by our partner school so that you may get the most out of your language study trip - be it in terms of language or getting to know everyday Irish life. Each family is visited beforehand, checked for cleanliness and it is checked whether they meet the standards of the school. Additional requirements of our partner school (such as good food and friendly atmosphere) must also be met. If you live with a host family, you only take part in three (instead of five) evening activities. The rest of the evenings are spent with your host family.

and much more!!

If you choose the combined offer "English lessons and riding lessons", you will not take part in the activities in the afternoon, because there is a riding course every weekday. You can also get started as an absolute beginner! The riding lessons are led by a trained instructor.

If you choose the combined offer "English lessons and rugby", you will not take part in the activities in the afternoon either. But you play rugby every weekday and learn everything you need to know about rugby!

It is possible to organize a transfer from and / or to Dublin Airport. However, it should be noted that it is not included in the price of the language stay and lasts three hours. So please don't plan your trip too late or too early.

If you travel via Cork Airport and live with a host family, you will get picked up by them and brought back again on your departure. If you live in the residence, the transfer comes at an additional charge.
