The Boskill Equestrian Centre and Homestay Family House is a comfortable and busy environment for students to learn English, ride horses and to enjoy genuine Irish culture first hand. Students stay in a beautiful family home and can have fun with plenty of activities close by like hiking, cycling, swimming, tennis & golf. The family take care of children from 11 years upwards and also cater for adults.
Boskill is renowned for it's creative learning envirnment and two of the family are experienced TEFL teachers and we also have a fully qualified primary school teacher on site. We understand that each student has their own particular study needs so the teachers will work with the student to develop a customised programme of study that suits the student's learning style. If you wish to focus on your vocabulary, pronunciation, conversation or maybe your writing skills we will work with you so that you get the most out of your stay.
The centre is in the middle of the beautiful Irish countryside yet is very close to Limerick city which in 2014 is the European City of Culture. Very close by is the magnificent Lough Gur, Glenstal Abbey, The Clare Glens & The Slieve Bloom Mountains for picturesque sightseeing. We always have plenty of bicycles at the house for cycling around the lovely Irish country roads.
