Mini-stays in Galway
Located on the west coast of the Atlantic and two hours from Dublin by train, Galway is a small but very modern, young and an university city with a history that dates back up to the 8 centuries.This magnificent city condenses the best of Ireland: tradition and avant-garde, history, music and an incredible atmosphere, keeping in its vicinity some of the greatest attractions of Ireland, such as the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands or the wonderful landscapes of Connemara. The city has got a bohemian essence that is typical of the west of Ireland.
Galway has a reputation for artistic creativity, music, horse-racing, literature and oysters. Here you will find throughout the year many events from festivals to street performance. Very famous landmarks are the Spanish Arch, the Galway City Museums and Salthill Promenade.
If you are thinking to take your school group to Ireland for a mini-stay then Galway is the right place to experience the Irish culture and learn English.

The homestay is perhaps the most complete immersion method, ideal for students who want to take English courses, allowing them to make the most of the experience. Students will be sharing a room with one or two classmates and will be hosted by a local experienced host family, this will be a full-immersion cultural experience as they will see how locals live, what they eat and more. For some students, this may be a life-experience challenge as for most of them this will be their first experience outside their parents’ home but worth to try as we think this will let the students grow not only culturally but also personally. For most of the students, instead, this will be a home away from home and enjoy the experience with the locals. All host families are checked and inspected regularly and need to abide by a certain pre-set standard requirement.
We have the availability of residential accommodation all year round, our type of accommodation varies depending on your budget and requirements. We can offer students residence accommodation with students staying in two or three per room with shared or private facilities, hotel or B&B accommodation with students staying in triple or family rooms with private facilities. If you would like to choose this option for your students but your budget is very limited, we will be able to offer hostel accommodation. Most of our hostels are 4 stars with students staying in multiple rooms of 4,6 and sometimes 8 students in a room with private facilities, but we have also budget hostels where students will be staying in larger rooms with or without an en-suite room. We will organise for you, breakfast and dinner if this is required. Most of our residential accommodation is situated in the city centre or not far from it, but please bear in mind that availability may be limited, therefore, for this option, we may require an advance booking.
