Meet your host family: Teresa in Ireland

Welcome to Teresa.

We are a family of two. I am in my early fifties and work as a health and well-being mental health officer. My daughter is 16 and is a passionate horse rider. We have a King Charles Spaniel who is adorable and extremely well-behaved. We also own our own horse, and he is liveried in Claremorris where my daughter attends secondary school. We want to bring a student into our home to support them learn a new language because we both love meeting new people, and we want to energize our home. We live in the center of Castlebar town, so if you want to go to any of the three local secondary schools there, it's a five-minute walk. You can also go to the gym, swim, go to the cinema, shop or simply enjoy a coffee - everything is right on our doorstep. We also love to walk our dog in nearby woodlands, green areas, and by the lake. Welcome, and we look forward to meeting you. <3

Your Irish immersion experience :
A typical day with us

An ACADEMIC day will start with a breakfast of cereal/yoghurt/fruit/toast along with tea/coffee/orange juice and anything else your heart desires. At weekends, we have a full Irish, if you don't know what that is, you're going to love it! We make a packed lunch and a drink with a sandwich or bagel topped with chicken/ham/egg mayo/salmon/cream cheese/salad or whatever you fancy. We then drive you to school where you follow the schedule and curriculum till pick up which it at 4, (1.15 on a Friday!). We can then enjoy either grab a snack or go and have supper. Our evenings are usually delegated to gym/swim/tennis, horse riding, dog walking or film watching. In the winter, we love nothing better than to make popcorn and watch Netflix before bed. We also would be really interested in finding out what you would like to do on weekends and support you in doing it.

There is a small theatre in Castlebar town which features the work of local playwrights, poets and musicians. There is a small art gallery upstairs which features many different exhibitions and a lovely coffee shop downstairs for a nice lunch. For bigger cultural pursuits and shopping, Galway city is an hour and a half away, where we will definitely have an excursion day! We will be really open to chatting with you about what the local area has to offer, what your interests are and how we can support them. We look forward to meeting you very soon!
