Our home is six bedroom dormer bungalow with large back and front gardens.Our home is a non-smoking environment. We also have 2 friendly dogs called Loui and Marvin. We are approved by our local health service to look after children and we are all police vetted. I have a qualification in Childcare and Child Protection. I work as a teacher in a pre-school. We enjoy cooking and freshly preparing all our meals daily. Fresh bread, scones and pancakes for breakfast are very popular.We can have fun making these together. You can show us some of your traditional food. Preparing food together is an enjoyable way to get and learn English. It's also great fun! We live on the outskirts of the beautiful picturesque seaside town of Tramore which has a 5 km sandy beach.Tramore is regarded as one of the top surfing and outdoor adventure spots in Ireland .There are also lots of other things to do like horse-riding, tennis,golf and a fairground thats very popular in the summer.Waterford is the closest city just 15mins drive. Waterford also has lots to see and do such as Medieval Museum of Treasures and Virtual Reality Experience. We can organise activities when you arrive. We want you to feel at home and have a memorable experience that you can take back home.
We have been welcoming guests to our home for the past 10 years. We enjoy meeting people and learning about their different culture and sharing ours with them. Each guest brings a different part of their culture and lifestyle with them. Living with a family is a great way to practice English.Conversation about every day life is such a natural way to learn English and its within a relaxed and fun environment.
