From 5 years old
Our partner school has opened a course centre for families right next to its main building. It's here that children from 5 years old and their parents can explore the best that the west of Ireland and Galway have to offer. With the support of qualified teachers, all members of the family can learn English using a range of teaching methods designed for their age group. A comfortable learning environment is provided by 14 bright classrooms, equipped with the latest technology. The student lounge allows you to relax during the day and is where you will find whatever refreshments you need. You can eat in the café located in the main entrance, as well as the restaurant accessible through the side entrance. The school is located in the centre of Galway, just a short distance away from the city's main attractions. The central bus stop and train station are situated less than a minute's walk away, perfect for discovering the different areas of Galway. Families are also able to use the leisure facilities in a nearby hotel at a preferential rate. The school offers an information service where parents can find out about unmissable trips as well as great ideas to use then and there.

Host family (limited offer)
The school offers a limited number of host families who can accommodate parents and children together under the same roof. As all the host families live near the main bus route, the course centre can be easily reached in a matter of minutes. You can stay in double, twin or triple bedrooms, depending on the composition of your family, and enjoy full board (breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal). The host family are able to do washing once a week.

Apartments
Our partner school has apartments only about a fifteen minute walk from the school. They can house between 2 and 6 people in single or double bedrooms. All the apartments are well equipped and have televisions, internet access and a washing machine or a laundry. You will have a set of sheets and hand towels supplied. You will need to bring extra bath towels with you. The apartments are cleaned before you arrive and after you leave.

Hotels and B&Bs
Please contact us for further information.

The school offers a weekly programme of activities for children (please see options/extras). This allows them to meet other participants and teachers on 5 afternoons a week in order to develop their vocabulary in a relaxed environment. All activities for children are organised and supervised by the group leaders (teachers) or sports instructors. While this is taking place, adults and teenagers can follow the intensive courses, or enjoy some free time together. All the family meets up again at the end of the class or activities at 15:00.

On Saturday, a whole day out is organised for all members of the family who have chosen the 'English +' activities or intensive option. This trip is organised and supervised by school staff so that you can explore the Galway region together as a family!
