Not dissimilar to the traditional "Bean-an-ti" teenagers will be provided accommodation with a host family.
All of our host families are well known to the Epoch team. They have been specially chosen for their friendliness and the comfort they provide in their home. The host family will accommodate three to four teenagers for the week and will offer wonderful opportunities for any young teenager willing to develop their confidence and maturity.
The host homes will be designated to either boys only or girls only. The details of the family will be furnished to participants six weeks in advance of the workshop commencement date.
The few nights away from home is key to the Epoch experience. Often times, teenagers experience this transition for the first time when moving away for college or further studies. Whether it’s their first time away or not, the week will teach young people the responsibilities that come with moving outside their home environs.
Transport services will be provided each day to take participants to the workshop or activity base – and will return them to their host home in the evening.
Your childs safety is paramount to Epoch. Our model follows the ages-old Gaeltacht accommodation for students learning Irish.
Ann will look after all accommodation matters and will be the point of contact for parents if anything may arise over the duration your teenagers stay. No issue is too big or too small and they can be dealt with by simply emailing the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org or by dialling 01 908 1601.
