Living with an Irish family will give you the opportunity to improve your ability to speak the language and learn first-hand about Irish culture.
Once you've decided where you (or your kids) will be staying, it's time to start planning activities. Do you want to visit museums and historical sites, or do you prefer to be outdoors and enjoy nature? Ireland has a lot to offer, so make sure you make a list of all the things you'd like to do and see, or prepare for your children. Don't forget to include some of the festivals and cultural events that take place throughout the year.
Another important consideration to keep in mind is the budget. Ireland may seem like an expensive country, but it doesn't have to be. With a little planning, you can save money on activities and transportation. Here at Hebe Adventures, we've got loads of tips to help you save money on your trip to Ireland.

But before you pack your bags and catch a flight, there are a few things to keep in mind to make sure your trip is as smooth as possible. Here are some tips to prepare your trip to Ireland for a year. Take note!
It is also necessary that you think about your stay well in advance, since we consider it to be one of the most important points to take into account before your trip. It is necessary that you reserve the stay for the entire duration of your trip, in this way you will not have surprises or the uncertainty of how or where the next accommodation will be. Knowing the area in advance will help you solve some of your doubts and familiarize yourself with the place that will be your home during that year. We also recommend that you get hold of the most important telephone numbers or addresses in the area, such as health services, the police or emergencies in general. We always hope not to have to use them, but they are contacts that, in any case, we must have.
On the other hand, for those of you who are thinking that such long trips are not what you are looking for for your children, here we have the perfect solution. Sometimes a short period of time is enough, we can even take advantage of the summer to dedicate it to something as important as learning another language. Our summer courses in English abroad may be what suits your needs.
Perhaps having an immersive linguistic experience with a hosting family Dublin is what you are looking for for your children. We, as experts that we are, know the importance of previously knowing the Dublin homestay where you will stay, so we put you in contact with your host family before the trip takes place. On our website you can find all the information related to the process.
Good prior communication with the host family can be crucial to start your children's stay successfully. It will help you to get to know each other a little better before the meeting takes place and to understand the needs and expectations.
That is all! If you follow these tips, you will be well on your way to planning the trip of your dreams or that of your children to Ireland. Are you ready to start your adventure?
