Students and Teacher

Our students come from all over the world to experience our hospitality and improve their English skills. We accept students from all walks of life. Over the years, we have forged many lasting relationships with students and helped them on their career or academic goals.


Here’s what some of them have to say…..

Stefano and Irene  – Italy

“We had a great time in Ireland. We practised a lot with Shane and we not only improved our English but our confidence.”


Lorea – Spain

“I’ve spent a lot of time with Shane and I really learned a lot. The scenery around his house is amazing and the area is very relaxing and beautiful. Everyone is so welcoming and there is always an opportunity to speak and practice. “


Jaime Ethan P – Spain

“I had a wonderful time with Shane, we are good friends. The experience at the school was great and I learned a lot, but it didn’t feel like school at all. It was great fun.”


The teacher – ME 


I’m Shane. I’m from Ireland. I’m a fully qualified teacher with a B.A and CELTA (teaching certificate from the University of Cambridge) and I’m working towards an MBA. I’ve spent many years in London and Spain and I’ve been teaching English for over 6 years. Mostly, I’ve worked with large multinational companies, teaching business English and communication. I’ve also worked with students to help them prepare for their IELTS exams, F.C.E and other Cambridge Exams.

I started this school for a number of reasons. I think its a unique idea to actually live with your teacher. Financially it makes more sense for both the student and the teacher. I love teaching English and my family love sharing their culture. We hope our school will be around for many many years.
