My accommodation was very central and made it easy to get to and from my placement, thank you.

I loved living with my host family; having meals ready for me when I got home from my placement was great and saved me a lot of money. I loved the kids in the house too!

My accommodation was great; my accommodation provider taught me some Irish, and took me to breakfast after collecting me at the bus from the airport. The house was fabulous; loved the huge television in the living room!
