Accommodation & Meals

Homestay Programme: Students stay with carefully selected host families, living as a part of the family, in Dalkey and surrounding villages. Some of our host families are within walking distance of the school, others are 1 or 2 stops away on the DART line (travel time of approximately 20-50 minutes to the school). We will provide travel cards when necessary. There is normally a maximum of 3 students per host family. Most students will be in twin rooms, others in singles or triples. Families provide full board, with a packed lunch on afternoons when there are activities.

Day School: No meals or accommodation provided. Parents must provide a packed lunch and a drink to teenagers everyday.

Free Time, Weekly Excursions, Example Week

In the evenings and Sundays, students  socialise with their host families or together in small groups in the village. We offer 24 hour support to all our students.

Every weekend, students go on a full day excursion by coach to a place of interest in and around Dublin including Kilkenny Castle, Powerscourt Gardens and Waterfall, and Glendalough.
