Language Immersion - English Summer Camps with Irish Host Families.
Helping young people explore the world
A summer immersed in English
There's no better way to learn the English language than through total language immersion and nothing beats Irish hospitality. That's why we invite young travellers from all over the world to stay with friendly and welcoming Irish host families.
Young travellers can experience a whole new culture, improve their English, and enjoy a holiday they’ll never forget. We provide the opportunity to stay by the sea, explore the countryside, or experience Ireland's beautiful cities. Your child will be immersed in Irish food, humour, culture – all while they improve their English.
It's an amazing opportunity and one that gets results.

We aim to make sure that you, as parents, have a clear view of every element of your child's trip from start to finish. Given the bespoke nature of each trip, we wanted to make it as easy as possible to manage all elements from accessing information about the host family to viewing the schedule of the summer camps or schools.

Here are some of the things you can do with it:

Our friendly and caring host families provide a "home from home" for your child, taking care of them and ensuring they are safe and happy for the duration of their stay. This environment also encourages conversation and therefore helps the student improve their English.
Choose a Summer Camp
All our summer camps include full language immersion with an Irish host family. We believe in learning English through language immersion as opposed to formal English classes. But the opportunities extend further than just learning English. Even those fluent in English will benefit greatly from diving into a new culture. It’s a unique adventure and one that won’t soon be forgotten.
We offer a wide range of English summer camps, where your child will be in attendance with Irish children. We also partner with local public and private schools, both primary & secondary (high school) for Academic Stays. For those interested in work experience we offer a range of internships. The duration of the stay can range from a single term to a full academic year.
Though we have over 400 host families and over 30 English language summer camps, spaces fill up remarkable quickly. If you're interested please get in touch and we will answer any questions you might have. We hope to see you and your child soon.
