As the capital city of one of the most dynamic members of the EU, Dublin offers an exciting and enriching backdrop in which to improve your English. The Irish National Museum and the Irish National Gallery offer fascinating glimpses into the long history of the island from the Bronze Age through the Celts, up to modern times, and the world famous illuminated medieval Book of Kells can be viewed at Trinity College.
Dublin is also a wonderful base from which to discover the rest of Ireland, as almost all the roads and railways in the country lead to this central hub.
Dublin also has a large cultural scene, with numerous theatres, its literary tradition (James Joyce, Oscar Wilde etc) and music. There are plenty of entertainment venues, like the Temple Bar district which is home to many of the famous pubs and restaurants.
Our partner school, EC is located on the banks of the Grand Canal, only 15 minutes on foot away from Dublin's main attractions and is easily accessible by public transport.
