Jessica (24) lives in Belfast, Northern Ireland with her life-long friend, Lauren and her brother, Ryan, also in their early twenties. They are all sporty and enjoy using their free time to play hockey and rugby, go on coastal road trips or travel.

Jessica’s family (Mum, Dad and brother) live a twenty minute drive away and are also very keen to get involved in giving you a pleasant stay (her mum promises to treat you to her renowned traditional Northern Irish breakfast and Sunday Roast Dinner).

It is a two-minute walk from the Botanic Gardens and a ten-minute walk from the city centre high streets. The North Coast – an area of ‘Outstanding Natural Beauty’ –is easily accessible within an hour by car and she promises to show you all the hidden gems of this gorgeous coastline that only a local would know. She has worked as a teacher in both France and Spain and is a keen hockey player, pianist and linguist. She loves to use her passion for music, sport and social interaction to enhance her lessons. She understands that more learning is done through living than studying and therefore endeavours to incorporate outings such as supermarket challenges, photo challenges, treasure hunts and creative projects into her classes as much as possible.

Having completed homestays abroad on numerous occasions, she empathises with the student’s position and understands how to go about providing them with a comfortable home and a thoroughly enjoyable and profitable experience.

Your stay with Jessica will be full of adventures, local encounters and time spent outdoors. Trips will include the UNESCO World Heritage Site ‘the Giant’s Causeway,’ as well as many other natural areas that have recently been featured in movies and TV series such as Game of Thrones. She is happy to tailor your stay to your interests and has many activities in mind for lovers of sport, music, entertainment or food alike!
