English school in Dublin



One of the most experienced English schools in Dublin, our partner school was founded over thirty years ago! The course centre is located in the very heart of the city, on the same street as Dublin Castle and just in front of the legendary Temple Bar district. In two prestigious buildings, situated less than a minute's walk away from each other, the school houses 25 classrooms, an internet café, two computer rooms and two rooftop terraces with trees. Internet is accessible free of charge in the two buildings. The classrooms are equipped with modern facilities and a multimedia centre. A library and a room for listening to audio recordings are available for use. In the cafeteria, equipped with a plasma screen TV, you'll be able to eat, drink and chat with the other students from throughout the world.

ESL schools guarantee the same excellent standards for accommodation as they do for teaching. We take great pleasure in helping you find the most suitable accommodation for you.


Host family


This option has proven itself to be the most effective way to consolidate the language knowledge acquired throughout your stay. Staying in a single or twin room with half-board provided (full board at the weekends), you'll share the common rooms of the house with your hosts. The families generally live in nice districts on the outskirts of Dublin. You'll make the journeys to the school by train or by bus. This experience is a great opportunity to get to know local Dubliners and acquire conversational fluency in English!

Please note that students aged 16-18 years will be placed in twin rooms during July and August.
