Our High School Program offers students the chance to go to school in Ireland. With us, they can see how it feels to attend a regular high school, participate in school activities and do homework and class tests just like everyone else.

Over recent years it has become a popular choice for international students to spend time attending an Irish High School. It is a great opportunity for students to become totally immersed in English and the fees are relatively low in comparison with other English speaking countries.

Students stay with a local Irish Host Family where only English is spoken. Most of our host families have children of the same age, many times even attending the same school.

Our Care Program for younger visitors gives parents total peace of mind as well as 24 hour contact.

Students normally stay for at least an academic term, however shorter stays are also possible on request.

I went to school in Malahide in Dublin and it was really amazing! My family were so kind and everyone in school was really friendly. I spent 3 months there and my English is so much better now. I’m not worried about my exams any more.

Everything went very well from the start. The lady from IrelandSchool was at Dublin airport to collect me, and she gave me and Irish mobile phone so that I could call her if I needed anything. Then she brought me to my new family in Portmarnock. It has a lovely beach. The school was good fun and I made lots of friends. I will definitely come back to Ireland.

We are located in Ireland’s thriving capital of Dublin which is known as one of the world’s friendliest cities. Although it is the capital, it retains its quaint atmosphere and in reality it is more like a large town. Its unique atmosphere provides you with a safe a comfortable place to learn and practice your English. The city centre is famous for it’s rich culture and the surrounding coastal towns are both serene and picturesque. Most of our High Schools and Host Families are located in these surrounding areas of Dublin, all of which are within at most a 20 minute train journey of the City Centre.
