Staying with an Irish host family
Sarah and four other students stayed with a host family living about 20-30 minutes' drive from the city centre. Breakfast usually consisted of toast and muesli, and there was a hot meal in the evenings. The family was extremely nice and gave her many good and helpful tips for her time in Dublin.
David, on the other hand, was with just one other student. His host family lived further away from the city, but this meant that he had all the advantages of a quiet location. His breakfast also consisted of toast and muesli, together with jams and fruit. His hot evening meal was often something traditionally Irish or English, and he has especially fond memories of the "shepherd's pie". His host family assisted him whenever he had questions and took good care of him. He felt very at ease.
