International Student Guardianship Ireland (ISGI) was established in 2018 by Nora and Ian Gallagher and has grown as the need for professional guardians in Ireland has increased. ISGI has gained recognition from both the Boarding School Association (BSA) and the Association of Guardianship Providers Ireland (AGPI). 


ISGI brings a high quality personal  service to students that wish to study outside the Dublin area of Ireland. ISGI is affiliated with well respected international and public schools across the Munster area including Clare, Limerick, Tipperary, Cork and Kerry.  We offers a variety of services including guardianship for school & university placements as well as homestay placements across Ireland and Munster throughout the academic year.
