Key Points

Welcoming School Groups from all over the world, Since 1993.

Mini-stay school groups travel with their teachers (group leaders) and live with Irish host families for the duration of the stay. Dublin is a great location for a mini-stay. The city is quite small so it’s easy to travel around with lots of interesting places to visit. Horner School will design an individual plan for your group with school activities, excursions, and a full day tour included. We can also provide transport passes and private coach pick-up at Dublin Airport on arrival and departure.
