Host Family Network
We have over 1000 host families in Dublin/Ireland, with the availability to host students all year round.
All Families Vetted
All families are visited and vetted by our host family visitor.
All families can easily access the city centre by the local transport systems. Your host family will show you where to take the local public transport.
IEP is available 24/7 to assist with any issues when the accommodation is booked as a part of the internship programme.
Our families are happy to share their knowledge for a truly immersive experience.
It is not compulsory to book English lessons as a part of the Internship programme. However, if you wish to do English lessons before the internship starts, we can book this for you in one of our partner language schools. Courses range from General English to Business English and can be 15, 20 or 25 hours per week.
There is also an option to do an evening course or weekend course during your internship.
In Dublin, there are 3 modes of public transport - Dublinbus, Dart (train) & Luas (tram). We have unlimited travel cards available to use on these transport options, they come in 1-4 week durations. Travel cards can be pre-booked before arrival or purchased from our office at any time throughout the internship programme.
Host families do not pick the students up from the airport. If you require pre-booked transfers, we can organise a driver to meet the students in the arrivals hall and bring them to their host family. This option is available for individuals or groups.
Social Activities and Tours
Every weekend there are full day excursions available to book. How about visiting the famous Cliffs of Moher, taking a short trip to Wicklow & Glendalough or hopping over the border into Belfast for the day! IEP are on hand to help book any activities or tours in Dublin or Ireland.
While in Dublin we have a Whatsapp group with all students on IEP programmes, here the students talk with each other about joining activities and social events together.
