Boarding Options at Midleton College

At Midleton College, we offer a choice of boarding options tailored to meet the individual needs and preferences of our students. Our dedicated team ensures that each student receives personalized attention, whether they opt for the 5-day or 7-day boarding experience.

5-Day Boarding

Our 5-day boarding option is ideal for local students who want to experience the close-knit community of boarding life during the weekdays while returning home or staying with host families on weekends. This option is also available for international students, who can benefit from staying with carefully selected host families during weekends.

7-Day Boarding (TY or above)

For students in Transition Year or above, our 7-day boarding option offers an immersive boarding experience, filled with opportunities for study, relaxation, cultural exploration, and personal growth.

Highlights of 7-Day Boarding:

  • Weekend Schedule: More time for study and relaxation after a busy school week, with extended sign-out availability.
  • Breakfast: Served at the later time of 9.30 am on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • Laundry Service: Available to 7-day boarders, with additional charges for specific items.
  • Sunday Service: Inclusive attendance alternating between Church of Ireland Sunday Service and Roman Catholic service, representing our diverse community.
  • Leave Out: Extended leave out is available at the discretion of the staff member on duty.
  • Weekend Activities: Explore cultural landmarks like Blarney Castle, Torc Waterfall, Killarney National Park, or enjoy activities such as Go Karting, Laser Tag, Bowling, Fota Wildlife Park, and much more.

Weekend Activities

Our 7-day boarders experience a wide range of cultural and leisure weekend activities, allowing them to bond as a group while experiencing what Ireland has to offer. Planned trips and activities are designed to enrich the student’s cultural understanding and provide enjoyable social experiences.
