In a homestay you will live with local English speakers, and experience an authentic lifestyle. You will live as your hosts live, eat what they eat and spend time at home together. Many students enjoy the homecooked food and extra feeling of security in a homestay.
Speak English all the time

Get personal care and attention in a caring, comfortable, home environment. Staying in a home means you always have someone there to support you.
Peace and quiet
Enjoy a relaxing atmosphere at home. Living with your host will give you stability, plus a quiet and peaceful environment for relaxation and study.
Dublin - Host family
Ireland has always been famed for its hospitality and staying with a host family is one of the best ways to experience this first-hand. Many students find staying with an Irish family a very rewarding experience as it offers them a unique insight into Irish culture and provides the perfect opportunity to improve their English by practising it in a natural everyday context.
Over the years we have built up strong relationships with a number of local families who host our students during their time in Ireland, all of whom are personally interviewed by our accommodation officer and are chosen for their experience and friendliness. Unless otherwise requested, students have their own room with study facilities. Students of the same nationality are not hosted by the same family except on request or when they come as part of a group.
Live with other EC students from all over the world. Whether you would like to stay in a residence with other English learners or alone in an apartment, our range of accommodation options ensures you find the perfect home away from home.
Staying with other students means you have more freedom. It’s a good choice if you enjoy your independence and privacy.
Make new friends
Get to know a lot of people in a short time. Meet interesting people from many different countries. Explore your destination with like-minded people and make friends for life!
Staying with other students means there’s always someone for you to talk too. Residences often have lively atmospheres suitable for anyone who loves socialising.
Convenient for public transport
Our accommodation options are convenient for public transport making it straightforward for you to get to school.
