Apply to Host

Thank you for your interest in becoming a host family for ELI. Host families provide a crucial service for our students and a welcome home from home in the weeks after arrival and often for the duration of their stay. We want to develop strong professional relationships with our hosts founded on trust, respect, and honesty.

Welcoming an international student into your home can be a rewarding experience for the whole family. Our students are eager to meet Irish people and to learn about our culture, and to share stories of their own. Hosting international students is not just an excellent way to earn extra money from unused bedrooms, it is also a great opportunity to meet new people and to provide a welcome home to young international students visiting our country.
