Become a Host Family


At Brookfield College we are looking for new host families to accommodate international students.


Some students attend our High School Programme which runs from September to May. Other students attend our 2 week English Language Courses which run from 24th June, 2019 to 16th August, 2019.


We carefully select our host families to ensure the students enjoy their stay in Tralee. We allocate the host family to match the student requirements. It is a very enjoyable experience for both the student and the host family to share stories, learn about each other’s cultures and to engage in conversation.


Living with an Irish family provides students with an opportunity to practice their developing English skills, to meet Irish people and to share their way of life. Many families develop long term friendships with the students.
