Our host families

Our families represent the diversity in Ireland — some have young or teenage children, while others may be empty-nesters, same-sex couples, or grandparents. The one thing that all families share is an interest in learning about other cultures and sharing their Irish life with a student. Refer a caring family you know and we will pay you €300 when they host with EF. Refer as many families as you like and earn more!

*Families must be new to EF, meaning they have not previously hosted or been referred by someone else. You will receive €300 once the family completes the screening process and the host family has successfully hosted for two months.
