Host Family Accommodation

Students attending SLS stay with host families. All our families are inspected and carefully selected by our accommodation officers who maintains regular contact with each host family during a student’s stay. Host families are conveniently located to the colleges and most have many years’ experience looking after students.

Accommodation is arranged on a full board basis with packed lunch Monday to Saturday. Students normally share a room with a student of a similar age but of different nationality. Unless specifically requested there is only one student of any particular nationality in each family.

Students normally travel to classes each day by public transport – bus, DART (suburban train) or LUAS (tram). Private transfers can also be arranged at an additional cost.

Living with a host family gives a perspective into Irish family life. The interaction with a host family plays a prominent role in developing language skills.
