Family Programme


International House Dublin has created an English language programme for the whole family. The programme for parents, children and teenagers takes place at Sutton Park School. The school is located on the beautiful Howth peninsula, just 12kms north of Dublin city centre. Sutton Park School, located right beside the sea, has the perfect setting & facilities for a family programme. Facilities include: a playground, maze, private garden, tennis courts & all-weather sports pitches, all of which are within the school grounds. We are delighted to offer this new programme to families who wish to combine an English language programme with a wonderful summer holiday to Ireland!
