Please get in touch with your host family or other accommodation providers before travelling to Ireland.
Before travelling to Ireland please make sure that you have already logged into our administration system and that you have been in contact with your host family or accommodation provider to organize your arrival in Wexford.
A member of your host family will meet you at Wexford Bus/Train Station (O’Hanrahan Station/Redmond Square) on your arrival day if you arrive in Wexford between 8am and 23pm.
We will be happy to organize taxi transfers for students who arrive late and for students who have booked apartments, B&Bs, guesthouses or hotels.
The majority of Slaney Language Centre students arrive on either Saturday or Sunday.
Most apartment owners insist on arrival and departure days being Saturdays.
We recommend you to familiarize yourself with the location of The Slaney Language Centre over the weekend.
Channing House, Upper Rowestreet, Wexford Town, Y35TH2A.
Your host family will be happy to assist.
Please try to arrive at The Slaney Language Centre on your first course day at 9.00 and please proceed upstairs to our Common Room on the second floor.
When all new students have arrived, a staff member of The Slaney Language Centre will welcome you and show you an introduction video. You will then be brought on a tour of the building and will be informed about health and safety issues.
There is always time to have a chat or ask for help and information, so please feel free to ask us any questions that you may have.
Be patient with yourself.
The first day can be a bit daunting. You have just arrived in another country with a different culture. You have only just met your host family and been introduced to your new class mates and teachers.
Everybody is talking in English and you won’t understand everything. That’s normal, so please don’t worry.
Give yourself time to settle in. Relax and remember, we are always here to help.
