Homestay accommodation is on a half board basis from Monday to Friday with breakfast and an evening meal and full board basis (light lunch) during the weekend. Homes are included in our panel of homestays following a visit from the accommodation services administrator. Houses are located in good residential areas of Cork and on a bus route. Clients should expect an average of 40 minutes travelling time to ACET. The main selection criteria are a friendly atmosphere and clean comfortable surroundings.
