Meet your host family: Lorraine in Ireland

Welcome to Lorraine and Killian's home.

Hello and welcome to our family profile.

We are a family of six. Lorraine (mom) Killian (dad) Sean (grandad) Fionn, Saoirse and Oisin. We also have two adorable dogs Buster and Marley and four horses Breeze, Spirit, Cookie and Bobby.

Both Killian and I are nurses and work for the HSE. Killian is a mental health nurse and I am a general nurse. We both work in the local hospital 20 minutes from our home. I only work part time.

We are very lucky to be living in such a beautiful part of Ireland, Killarney. We have many famous lakes and mountains on our doorstep and we take full advantage of this. We regularly go walking and trekking in the National Park 10 minutes from our house. To name but a few beautiful well-known places in Killarney that we regularly visit, Muckross House, Torc Waterfall, Gap of Dunloe and Ross Castle. Those are all just minutes from our home. Our town is steeped in history and culture and offers a wide variety of activities and sightseeing opportunities.

Your Irish immersion experience :
A typical day with us

Everyday in our house is very different. There is something on most days and somebody is always going somewhere. The kids are involved in a lot of activities during the summer but we also have plenty of time for just relaxing and enjoy ourselves as a family. We hope you will enjoy all we would have to offer you . Horse riding, and spending time learning about horses, water sports and enjoying the local beaches in our area , attending local football matches , to enjoying day trips to learn more about our beautiful fantastic town and also learn about our culture. In the evening we like to have dinner together and plan for the following day. We love to give the kids an opportunity to decide what and where we would go for a new adventure.

Notre fille Nina, 17 ans, a été accueillie cet été par Lorraine et toute sa famille. Un véritable accueil familial, dans une ambiance chaleureuse et l'envie de faire découvrir la région et la culture irlandaise. Lorraine est très investie auprès des jeunes. Nous recommandons vivement Lorraine et sa famille tout aussi impliquée. Merci à eux !
