Students may also arrive and/or depart from Shannon Airport but there is an extra fee for the transfer of €60 per trip. Full details are on our “Travelling to Clare” web page.
Travel Details can be sent at a later time. Do not book flights until a place on a course is confirmed. Students under 16 from Spain must carry an authorization letter issued by the Spanish police before they will be allowed to travel. I understand that Clare English Language School (CELS) reserves the right to send a teenage student home in the case of serious illness/injury or because of serious discipline problems. In such cases any additional return fares will be paid by the parent(s) of the student.
If a student needs to see a doctor, the expenses, including any transport, will be paid by the parent(s) of student.
Travel expenses for doctor visit: €25 minimum;
Travel expenses for a visit to hospital: €60 minimum CELS can provide support to a hospitalised student for 60 hours. After that, the parent(s) of the student must provide support or pay an additional €150 per day. The parent(s) of students are responsible for paying for any damage to property, items, furniture, etc. that a student causes.
Whilst Clare English Language School (CELS) will take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety and well-being of students, neither the school nor Host Families can accept legal responsibility for any accident, illness, theft or loss of students’ personal effects. Students are strongly advised to take out comprehensive personal insurance before coming to Ireland. CELS complies with health and safety legislation in Ireland.
