Learn English while staying on a family farm in Co. Clare in the West of Ireland. You live and study English with your own private teacher on their farm and receive one to one English lessons, full board accommodation and the opportunity to get involved in the farm activities. We believe the best way to learn English is by living it. All of our English courses are intensive but varied. You won’t believe how much your English will improve.
Experience life on a farm in Ireland, take part in the farm activities and enjoy the home cooking, fresh air and fine views of the beautiful countryside of Co. Clare. Farm activities will vary depending on the farm but some examples are as follows: fruit picking, harvesting the vegetables, collecting eggs from the hens, feeding the farm animals, milking the cows/goats, haymaking, preparing the firewood, working in the garden, preparing bedding for the animals etc.
All our teachers have either a teaching certificate “Recognised by the State” or a University Degree (or equivalent) accepted by the private sector. In addition they have all been awarded the Regency Certificate which means that the qualifications have been verified and the teachers’ homes have been thoroughly inspected.
Associated farms in Clare are located in: Tulla, Kilkee, Drummin, Caher, Feakle, Whitegate.
