Aventuro Ireland

We have had over four very busy and exciting years with Aventuro Ireland and have supported hundreds of children in making their dreams a reality and being part of real exchanges, both summer exchanges and school exchanges to France, Spain, Germany and Italy.

As Sinead herself went on an exchange to France at 15 and Saoirse lived and studied in France aged 16 , we both understand from the child and the parents perspective the real challenges and difficulties alongside the unbelievable growth, fun and adventure that are experienced in real exchanges!

We pride ourselves on our personal touch and the more intimate service that is necessary when Irish children and teenagers are leaving home, possibly for the first time, alone! We provide the personal understanding as we have both been there as teenagers too, so we know when to step up and gently support and comfort, if homesickness arises. We also know when to tell parents to relax, when they are not getting daily updates from their children, after all “no news is good news” with teenagers!

Our International Team

Our exchanges involve real team work; we are very lucky and proud of the International team we work along with. Our team has the combined experience of over 50 years of successful matching and supporting international exchanges. We rise to every challenge and we never see anything as a problem, we only concentrate on the solutions while keeping the children’s welfare paramount.

As we host national meetings for Families to come and meet us personally in each country, this gives us an opportunity to meet up several times a year in each country and spend quality time discussing the exchanges and considering any areas in which we can improve and enhance the Aventuro experience.
