    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They call Offaly hidden Ireland, as it’s a little off the beaten tourist track. It’s a very beautiful county with lots of Irish culture close to hand. You would get to see how real life is lived in Ireland, but also we are central to all the big cities so day trips are very easy. If you would like to learn about our culture, day to day lifestyle, also use your time off to visit the bigger town and cities then our location and family should suit your needs.Our area would suit you if you like hillwalking, mountain biking, music and to learn more about Irish culture

The local village has great pubs and a Castle with traditional Irish music sessions on regularly.
