I stayed with the O'Kelly family for 12 days while in Ireland. They put all the effort into making me feel at home and enjoy my experience. I really felt part of this beautiful family. We went somewhere everyday and had fun together. Everyone was really kind and friendly all the time. I miss them so much! If you want an unique experience I recommend staying with them, they are so sweet and they'll make your stay incredible!! Elisa

Our 13y-old daughter had an amazing experience with the O'Kelly's during her English stay in Ireland. They were incredibly welcoming, making her feel like a part of their family from the moment she arrived. The warmth and hospitality they showed was truly heartwarming. Not only did they provide a comfortable and cozy environment to stay in, but they also went out of their way to immerse her in Irish culture and help her improve her English skills, with lots of outdoor activities. They have two nice daughters, of which Caterina became very fond. We are truly grateful for the bond they formed and the memories they created. Staying with this wonderful host family was an unforgettable and enriching experience that we would highly recommend to anyone looking for a positive and authentic English immersion in Ireland.

 Last summer I had the opportunity to stay with the O'Kelly's wonderful family. During this linguistic trip I had the chance to do lots of activities such as taking riding lessons, or going to a big horse show where we were able to encourage different countries and see different equestrian practices. Finally, we went to the swimming pool where there were lots of slides, diving boards... I had the opportunity to have English lessons which enabled me to learn more vocabulary and review my weaknesses. I'd like to thank the family for a fantastic language trip and I hope to see you soon.
