St. Josephs Secondary School is located in Co. Kerry, which is one of the most beautiful counties in Ireland. Ballybunion is a small country town which is located in the southwest of Ireland. It has beautiful unspoiled beaches and boasts many additional features in the town. The nearest commercial town is Tralee which is located just 20 minutes away.

Our host families are carefully selected and are known personally to us. We trust the care, safety and comfort of our international students in them.

We feel that our international students have a better chance of learning the language and experience Irish life and culture in a rural setting rather than a large city.

This year we are hoping to offer The Cambridge Exam to our international students and will advise more detail in due course.

The reputation of the Irish education system has long been regarded as one of the best in Europe. The high level of commitment and the quality of our teaching staff has been commended in OECD reports. A significant and positive factor in all of this are our class sizes. Reduced class sizes means more "one on one" time for the student and especially our international students. A testimony to this is the amount of international students who return home with English reading and writing skills which are often two or three grades higher than when they started our programme"

The teaching profession has a distinguished record of service in Ireland. This Code of Professional Conduct for Teachers reiterates and makes explicit the values and standards that have long been experienced by pupils/students through their participation in education.

Ireland has one of the best education systems in Europe. It is a friendly and hospitable country offering a unique and enriching learning and cultural experience. Overseas students comment on the ease with which they settle into Irish student life, the good-natured and welcoming people, beautiful landscape, vibrant social and cultural scene, and opportunities for academic and personal development. The country also has a rich cultural heritage with its own distinctive language (Gaelic), music, culture and sports. Ireland is very safe yet dynamic, lively and modern with a young, vibrant population. Learn English in Ireland with and join the growing number of international students that come to Ireland every year.
