About us

Very active and busy family living in a small town, 30 mins drive approx, from Dublin city (suburb). Both parents work, mam works part-time and takes leave over the summer. All children are involved in sports, dance and drama and love to be out and about being active. 2023 was our first year hosting students. We enjoyed the experience very much and have one of the students returning again this year. We have also had many au pairs and university Erasmus students living with us in the past so are very happy to have a guest staying with us and like to include them as part of the family. Our visitors can hang out with our own children and if they are doing camps they are welcome to attend with them. They can come on day trips, visit the beach, walk the dog, travel with us at weekends etc. (We like to camp if the weather is good). We are happy to take our visitors on day trips to tourist attractions in Dublin or the surrounding areas.

Finding the right family for our daughters (one different family for each of them) was rally easy. Our daughters had an amazing experience. Both families were really friendly and hosted them very well. They had the perfect experience of living with an Irish family. Famworld is a fantastic way to have a full Irish inmersion!
