Ali’s Story

Here is what Ali has to say about his host family who live in Blackrock just outside the city centre:

” My host family is lovely, very warm and welcoming. I felt at home on the first day. They even adapted their food  to suit me ( for example I eat a lot of vegetables, they don’t eat a lot so they make some extra for me, I think it is very considerate).

About the room, it is separated from the rest of the house so I am very quiet, I have my own bathroom on the same level ( private stairs from the kitchen so if you want to be alone, it is perfect, it’s like a little flat in the big house).

May I add that they have 3 or 4 living rooms with tv so there is no problem for watching your own show on tv if you wish( though I like to have plenty of conversations with the husband in the host family) and the house is very clean ( important point for me)!

I only have good comments about the family, the welcoming they gave me and their house. The location also is good, not too far from the center, the village of Blackrock is lovely and shopping center ( Mahon point) is not too far ”.
