ESL schools guarantee the same excellent standards for accommodation as they do for teaching. We take great pleasure in helping you find the most suitable accommodation for you.


Host family


Staying with a host family is an excellent way of practising the language daily in a warm and motivating atmosphere. The selected families provide you with a single room and half-board during the week and full board at weekends. They generally live in residential areas of the city, close to public transport, around 30-40 minutes from the school. In addition, students who choose to stay with a host family benefit from a free airport transfer on arrival (between 9 a.m. and 10.30 p.m.).

Student residence (ages 16 and over, available 01.06.24 - 17.08.24)


This beautiful summer residence is just a 30-minute walk from Cork city centre and a 10-minute bus ride from the school. Students will be placed in a single room in an apartment of three to five rooms and a shared kitchen/lounge area for you to relax, socialise, and cater for yourself. Each room has a desk, chair, wardrobe, Wi-Fi and an ensuite bathroom. Bed linen and towels are provided by the residence, which you can clean for a fee using the onsite facilities. You will be expected to keep your own space clean, but common spaces will be cleaned weekly. This residence is a great place to make new friends in Ireland, and, between classes, you can spend time with these new friends in the onsite TV and games room.
