Shared Apartment

The apartments in Galway are situated in very well presented shared apartments or semidetached houses. The distance from the school to the apartments vary from 5-20 minutes either walking or by public transport. Common areas are comfortable and kitchens are fully equipped. Single rooms are available and it is possible to pay a supplement for private bathroom.

Host Family

Staying with a host family in Galway is the best way to practice the language in a real life context after your classes.  The host family homes are usually townhouses with about 5 rooms including kitchen, bathroom and living room.  The families in Galway do not usually take more than one student of the same nationality without prior permission.  The distance from the school to the house is normally between 10 – 25 minutes and all are near to public transport.

The rooms include half board Monday to Friday and full board at weekends.

Executive Host Family

These host families live in nice houses and offer a higher quality of accommodation and service.  You will be able to have an individual room with ensuite bathroom on a half board basis Monday to Friday and full board at weekends.  The hosts will treat you as an extra member of their family, whilst you can be completely independent as you will be given your own set of keys to the house.
