About HEBE Adventures
Helping young people explore the world.
Hebe Adventures was started when we saw an opportunity to improve the traditional international learning experience. Clare Davitt, the founder, began hosting international students as a way to help her four children experience other cultures, meet new friends, and broaden their horizons. It also didn’t hurt that it was a nice way for a full time mum to make a few bob.
But she quickly realised that the traditional systems didn’t really work. Most international students had spent their time in dormitories or classrooms with a large number of other students from the same country. Hosting a student in an Irish home was a much more immersive experience and better for everyone involved.
With 18 years of experience working in PR, Sales and Customer service in Coca Cola, an interest in Irish tourism, and extensive experience raising a family, Clare was in a unique position to rethink how kids from all over the world could experience Ireland. And so, Hebe Adventures was born. Named after the Greek God of Youth and pronounced “He-bee”, we have been creating unique Home Stays for young international travellers for over five years. Not focused merely on students, we help any young travellers find a home-away-from-home and experience different cultures in a truly immersive and safe manner.
Now with over 300 host families we’re excited to provide young people from all over the world with a safe and unique way to experience new cultures.
