Accommodation for the duration of your course at the University of Limerick Language Centre (ULLC) can be booked in advance.

Homestay accommodation 

Homestay accommodation is when a student stays with a local family. Homestay includes full board (all meals).

Living with a local family helps students settle into life in Ireland. Students feel like part of a family and live in a safe, comfortable home.

Staying with a host family also gives students lots of opportunities to practise their English.

Our host families are carefully selected, individually inspected and continually monitored. They offer accommodation in comfortable and friendly homes either within walking distance or a bus ride away from the University.


  • Single room with a comfortable bed, a good supply of quality bedclothes and weekly change of bed linen
  • Breakfast, dinner with the family and a packed lunch
  • Laundry taken care of by host or reasonable access to laundry facilities allowed to student

  • Table and chair in the bedroom for private study or access at all times to another room with a table and chair

  • A clean and well-maintained house

Homestays can be booked for the first number of weeks or the full length of the course.

Please allow 5 working days for homestay accommodation to be arranged.
