We are proud of our accommodation quality standards developed over the years. We monitor quality through regular inspection visits by our experienced Accommodation Advisors. During your stay, you complete evaluation questionnaires on your homestay or your apartment, which help us to ensure the highest standards are maintained.
It is important to choose the accommodation option which suits your needs and preferences. Whether you select the cultural experience of living in a homestay or the independence of an apartment or a hotel, you can be sure the highest standards are met. You can choose from the following options:
Living in an Irish Home
Homestay accommodation is ideal for you if you wish to immerse yourself in the unique culture of Ireland. Living in an Irish home is an excellent way of improving your English and experiencing everyday life in Ireland in a welcoming and supportive environment. You stay in a good residential area of Cork, close to a bus route. You live in a home we have selected on the basis of a warm friendly atmosphere and clean comfortable surroundings. You are accommodated on a half board basis from Monday to Friday and on a full board basis at the weekend. To ensure that you practise English, you are the only speaker of your mother tongue placed in your homestay.
As a more mature business executive or professional person, you may prefer to choose Executive Homestay. Your home is more spacious with two or more bathrooms.
Living Independently in an Apartment
If you want to be more independent, select one of our comfortable modern apartments. The contemporary apartment complex is located 5 minutes' walk from the city centre. You have a single room in an apartment which you share with one or two students. Each apartment has a fully-equipped kitchen, a sitting room with a television, a bathroom and either two or three bedrooms.
Living in an International Community in a Student Residence Apartment
During the summer months, you can choose to live in a student residence apartment. You have a single room in an apartment which you share with other students. Each apartment has a fully-equipped kitchen, a sitting room with a television and a bathroom.
Guest Houses and Hotels for Extra Luxury and Flexibility
We have special arrangements with guest houses and hotels. We can help you to find a hotel to suit your preferences within walking distance of the school.
