  • Farmstay Programmes

    The English & Farmstay Programme provides the unique opportunity for a full immersion experience, living with your own private teacher and family on their farm in Ireland. Students receive private English lessons from their own private teacher, farm activities and full board accommodation. Staying on a farm in Ireland really is a great way to learn English. Experience life on an Irish farm, take part in the farm activities and enjoy the home cooking, fresh air and fine views of the beautiful Irish countryside.

    Farm activities will vary depending on the farm but some examples are as follows: fruit picking, harvesting the vegetables, collecting eggs from the hens, feeding the farm animals, milking the cows/goats, haymaking, preparing the firewood, working in the garden, preparing bedding for the animals etc. Our English Courses on a farm in Ireland are different to any other English language experience.

    Please note that the farmhouses are rustic and students should not expect a high standard of accommodation. They do however offer clean, comfortable accommodation and a charming country and outdoor lifestyle.
