Our accommodation officer visits each family to ensure that they are of the standard that is required by CEC to host foreign students. The families are selected on the basis of a friendly atmosphere, good food and clean comfortable surroundings.

Host Family accommodation is a chance for the student to become part of an Irish family during their stay in Cork. Each adult student has their own bedroom. Accommodation is half board (breakfast and evening meal) during the week and full board (all meals) at the weekend. We ensure that unless otherwise requested there will be only one student of the same mother tongue in the same household.
