Meet your host family: Maura in Ireland

Welcome to Maura and Michael's family

We are a family of 8, Michael and Maura, twins aged 19, twins aged 17, and twins aged 14. We live in Galway, which is in the west of Ireland. Michael and Maura work for the Department of Education. We work in the office 2 days a week only. The oldest twins attend university and the younger children attend the local, co-ed post-primary school. We live in a quiet, safe area in the countryside. We have a large garden which is great for playing soccer. We also have a basketball hoop and a trampoline. For the times we have rain, we have a pool table, a football table, board games, and card games. Michael is the head coach of the local athletic club and all the children do athletics. They also play soccer and Gaelic football. The girls also do dance. We love doing things as a family like bowling or going to the cinema.

Your Irish immersion experience :
A typical day with us

We love walking our golden retriever locally or on a wood trail or the 'Gold Mile'. Athlone is the nearest big town with 2 shopping centres (which our girls love), 2 entertainment centres with bowling and laser tag and a multiscreen cinema. We also visit Galway city either by car or train. Most of our evenings are taken up with sports either practice or matches all over the countryside. Some of our students join our athletic or soccer clubs and have competed and won medals.
