The distance from school to home, when it is a family, is generally longer than 30-35 minutes walking. Public transport is bad and nonexistent in some routes.
Other comments
In my opinion, they should improve some academic aspects. They could offer through a website, for example, exercises and activities that allow students to practice and progress according to their level. Much grammar is taught, which is fine, but it is not enough. It is important to improve listening comprehension and writing skills. A web page with guided exercises, with an access code, if the centre wants it, would help to improve these aspects.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
In my case, my teachers were great, the theory is somehow hard and you must work fast. What I saw is that a good result is achieved in 6 months, studying hard and practicing quite a lot. In my class more than half of us spoke Spanish, but you have to care that people only communicate in English with you. Staying at a host family was a great idea because you learn a lot and a great practice.
Other comments
The school is very good regarding to language orientation, price and quality. Teachers which corresponded me were excellent, but one more than the other, I need to clarify. If you feel that there is no connection between the method-teacher and you, inform the coordinator Alan for him to collaborate with you on time.

It is better to stay with a family, if you can afford it. That way you practice more English and have to think in English all the time.

A lot of students from Arab countries, who at every opportunity try to speak their own language, even during the lesson. Teachers practically do not react at this. And it's not very good for learning English.

Normally. homestays are far from the school and the student residence, so it is hard to meet people. I was really lucky because my host family lived near the student residence. From what I saw, this rarely happens.

It's not really a teacher-student connection, it's more a type of friendship between the staff and students. Maybe you should book the standard course at first and then decide whether you need the intensive or not.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you really want to get in touch with the Irish Culture, go to a host family and ask them about everything. Then you won't stay there as a guest. You'll be a part of their family and go to Pubs etc. where you get in touch with more Irish people and practice your skills. Try to organise a group of students, rent a car and travel around! Ireland was worth every € and Limerick, as ugly as it is, is right in the middle of places like Cork, Galway (Aran Islands, Cliffs), Killarney, Dingle, Ring of Kerry etc. etc. Don't be shy, enjoy your time and take your time to fall in love with Guinness:)
