Host Family Accommodation

Arriving in a new country can be a daunting experience, but getting a true Irish welcome from one of our host families will make you feel like you are in a home from home. It is also great way to improve your English and learn about Irish culture and life.

 Our Recruitment and Inspection Policies

At Griffith we have a policy of recruiting families, in safe and secure areas, with high quality houses. We inspect all of our families against a set of national standards, as well as
some additional standards that we have added ourselves. In the interests of safety and in line with our accreditation standards, all of our families are vetted by An Garda Síochána –
the Irish police service.
