Famille très agréable. Sean et sa famille ont toujours été à ma disposition, ce qui m'a permis de pratiquer l'anglais au quotidien. J'ai vraiment passé un très bon moment en leur compagnie. J'ai pu profité de nombreuses balades tant à Dublin que dans la campagne irlandaise. Je recommande vivement cette famille et en profite pour les remercier pour leur investissement.


Unacceptable behaviour of the host parents, aggressive atmosphere

We had to shorten our daughter’s stay (she is well-travelled) at Sean and Edel Carthy in Celbridge. The first 24 hours our daughter was given a room and three meals, that she all had alone, and apart from a 2hours walk with Ryan, she was left alone. Instead big disputes between the host mother Edel and the daughters, Edel swearing permanently and insulting the youngest. The daughters are obviously fed up with guest students. After 5 days our daughter mentioned parts of this situation and suddenly found herself in big trouble. Both adults swearing around, aggressive tone, big disputes inbetween the family, also concerning our daughter. From the moment of our decision to bring her back as soon as possible, the whole family (except Ryan) ignored her, didn‘t address her anymore for two days (!), but continued the loud aggressive swearing, also big disputes about our daughter. Our daughter was very frightened, we were very worried. This family showed an unacceptable behaviour and wording. No surprise that now Sean (incredible that he is in teaching business!!) makes up flimsy excuses for our cancellation and does not see any reason in their behaviour.


Un très chouette séjour chez Sean, Edel et leurs adolescents

Céleste est rentrée d'Irlande enchantée par les 2 semaines passées chez Sean et sa famille. Elle est heureuse de tous les échanges et discussions. Elle s'est très bien entendue avec Rian qui a le même âge qu'elle. Ils ont partagés beaucoup de ballades dans la nature, de sorties à Dublin, des jeux, des films, de la cuisine... Les cours d'anglais avec une professeure en visio étaient très bien faits, très sérieux et efficaces. C'était une expérience très enrichissante pour Céleste. Nous remercions Sean et toute la famille et vous la recommandons sans hésiter!


Super !

Ma fille a passé 10 jours fin juin chez Sean et sa famille. Plutôt que de perdre son temps au lycée en France où les cours ne sont assurés qu’épisodiquement en juin, elle a préféré s’exiler et travailler son anglais au sein d’une famille irlandaise. Accueil chaleureux, gentillesse, activités quotidiennes de la vie de tous les jours, rien de tel pour améliorer son anglais ! Je recommande cette famille. Merci Sean !
