About
Patricia M


I would like to welcome you to my home in the lovely village of Delgany close to the beautiful coastal village of Greystones in Co. Wicklow – known as the ‘Garden of Ireland’. Just a train journey away from Dublin’s City Centre we have the best of both worlds – city and suburbs. I have been welcoming international students to my home for over 20 years. I am passionate about language teaching and I love to motivate students learning languages to achieve their very best during their studies.

 Family information


I live with my daughter (2003) and son (2008) and our lovely Bichon Frise dog Oreo. We are a very active family and we love swimming, walking by the sea, hill-walking, cinema etc. The children also love technology and T.V. The children’s friends live nearby in our very friendly community. The children’s aunt, uncle and cousins live nearby.  There is a lovely library in the village for meeting friends and studying. As our guest at home classes will be in the morning with me whilst the children are at school and in the afternoons you will be welcome to join in all of our family activities and even suggest some that interest you. We have a large back garden where the children play football and basketball and gather with their friends.

About the teacher’s accommodation


We have a lovely semi-detached home in a quiet neighbourhood. We have a very happy home which is warm and welcoming. Our student guest will have their own room and have the family bathroom for their private sole use during their stay. Our student will have their own bed, chest of drawers, desk and study lamp, chair, and wardrobe with wifi throughout the house. The village is just 15 minutes walking from our house.

About the local area


In the local community there is lots to do. There is a beautiful beach and harbour, a really nice library with excellent facilities, a number of playgrounds and soft ball areas, an athletics track and sports grounds, a swimming pool, a tennis club, a rugby club. It is a really nice safe area for children and teenagers with a lovely community spirit. My children have grown up welcoming International Students to our home so they are happy for our student guest to join them and their friends for activities. The village is just a short walk from our house and there is a rail connection there to travel to Dublin city centre.
