The Beaumonts

Today Hubert and Noella live and run the family home and farm. As the children have almost all flown the nest there is space to welcome people into the house. Life is busy all year round but summer is the most charming season. With long days letting us enjoy outdoor living we look forward to seeing new faces and old ones and sharing a slice of our Irish country life.

 
 

Testimonials

Myself and my 8 years daughter relocated from Tokyo to Dublin in August 2017. My daughter did not know a word of English, but we were very fortunate to have Noella as my daughter’s first English tutor. For the first one month, she came to our house every day and spent 2 hours with my daughter, very patiently and caringly faced with my daughter who did not understand English at all. My daughter enjoyed the time with Noella so much, because Noella had pulled in elements of fun into her teaching very naturally. They played a game together, using cards in English, sang together, and laughed together. I do not know how to express my gratitude to Noella enough, as you could imagine, if my daughter’s first encounter with English had not been something enjoyable, that would have made her life so much difficult after that.

Noella moved to France for her daughter’s education, so unfortunately we could not continue with her after the first month. We have had a few tutors afterwards, yet my daughter’s favorite has been always Noella. And after one year, we are very lucky that we are now visiting her place every Saturday to take her lesson again! And what a wonderful place it is! Her home, Harristown, is a truly authentic manor house, surrounded by beautiful nature and wonderful farm. Harristown is really extraordinary place to learn English, and Noella is a perfect mistress and teacher especially for children, as I think her nature of kindness, caring and experience as a mother is really something that means a lot to children.

And there are adorable 2 dogs, Tabatha and Jemima, who are always the best company for my daughter. I am very certain that her English camp will be something very special, an unforgettable experience to young participants, and I am very much looking forward for my daughter to join it as well!

To say that Ailbhe thoroughly enjoyed her week at french camp is a total understatement. From the minute she arrived at Harristown House she was put at ease. As she didn’t know any of the other children on the camp this was important, as she had been quite apprehensive beforehand. She needn’t have worried.

Two and half hours of french daily may have seemed a bit daunting but the fun way in which you taught meant the time passed by very quickly . While she has some very basic knowledge of french she thoroughly enjoyed your method of teaching and the way you encouraged her to use the french she already knew and develop the new content she was learning. We particularly enjoyed watching the children’s music rap you posted online! To learn a language in such a fun way can only be a positive thing.

Together with croquet, yoga, baking, tennis, creating bug hotels, obstacle courses...the list goes on, she had an absolutely fantastic week. So much so that she was sorry when it was over. The course was held in such a wonderful environment too, lending itself beautifully to the whole experience. Ailbhe feels privileged that you welcomed her into your home, completing a tour of your beautiful house and of course, baking those delicious treats in your kitchen.

Finally, I’d like to thank you for the professional way in which the whole week was organised. The other facilitators on the course were all of an excellent standard and I’d particularly like to mention Isabella who was incredibly friendly and welcoming. She worked very hard all week!

J’ai passé une dizaine de jours avec une amie chez Noella, dans cette grande maison irlandaise l’été dernier. La propriété est trés grande et agréable, la famille est trés conviviale et sait mettre á l’aise. Cette immersion en Irlande m’a permis d’améliorer mon anglais, et j’adorerais recommencer cette super expérience. Rentrée en France, Noella m’a donné des cours d’anglais par Skype qui m’ont beaucoup aidé pour le bac.

Noella est un super professeur qui s’adapte au niveau d’anglais de chacun et qui nous apprend des choses et des notions réellement utiles. Ce séjour était tout simplement parfait!

Je profite de notre échange pour vous remercier pour l’excellent séjour qu’Emilie-Rose a passé chez vous. Elle n’a que des souvenirs heureux et constructifs. C’est un sans faute, donc. Emilie-Rose n’était jamais partie loin de moi, seule, à l’étranger, aussi longtemps ! Une première expérience d’immersion très positive, et cela, grâce à vous et à ceux qui vous entourent.

Bonne continuation et très certainement, à bientôt !

Vous voulez que vos enfants apprennent l’anglais? Intéressés par un camp d’immersion dans un décor idyllique avec d’excellentes activités (arts, yoga, cuisine, tennis entre autres)? Ne cherchez pas plus loin! Nos enfants ont eu beaucoup de plaisirs à participer aux nombreuses activités!

English-speaking? No problem! They also run a French language camp. You couldn’t ask for a better location and the activities (from arts to yoga, cookery to tennis and more) have been certified “100%-fun filled” by our children !

We shot six consecutive days at Harristown House on BLACK 47. The entire climactic riot and battle sequence exteriors were staged there, as well as interiors in their beautiful house, the stables and outbuildings. Hubert and his team were extremely welcoming and facilitated many weeks of prep and construction prior to the shoot and countless vehicles and facilities and hundreds of cast and crew during the shoot itself.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Harristown House to any production - they have ample capacity, a wide range of locations and scenery and a great spirit of co-operation and support. I hope to shoot there again in the future!
