Learning English in Ireland

Dublin, political and cultural capital and main city on the east coast, or Galway, harbour city and main stop on the Wild Atlantic Way?

With friendly locals, untouched nature, folklore and some amazing food, Ireland is one of Europe’s most spellbinding and welcoming countries.

Studying English on the Emerald Isle is an opportunity not to be missed!


Dublin is a youthful city with a world-renowned cultural scene and vibrant social life.

While James Joyce is probably the most famous son of Dublin, his love of this dynamic, cosmopolitan city is shared every year by thousands of visitors and students.

Located between the sea and mountains, it is a very welcoming, hospitable city. And it makes a fantastic place to study English. The first thing you will discover is just how friendly the Irish are: their hospitality is proverbial and this also helps with learning the language because there will be endless opportunities to talk with the locals.

Dublin is a really interesting city, with so many things to do and a wealth of cultural events… there is no danger of being bored here! It is a capital city, but not a metropolis, with all the main attractions — museums, galleries, theatres, shopping centres, parks and restaurants — within easy walking distance.

The school is not far from the centre of Dublin, in Dun Laoghaire, a resort that is famous in Ireland for its sailing and watersports.

Its location is ideal for groups planning on a short stay, close to the centre, but in a quieter, more secluded spot enjoying a welcoming, safe and secure atmosphere, with all the conveniences and services you need. With the added bonus of being on the sea!

The school is a simply beautiful, fully restored building with seven classrooms, a large hall, patio, barbecue area and extensive grounds. All PCs have internet access and there is Wi-Fi everywhere around the school.
Homestays are all located a short distance from the school and, in all cases, getting around is easy using the highly efficient, well-organized public services.

The host families have been taking part in the school’s programmes for years, ensuring that lodgings are consistently high quality. All students can expect to receive a lovely, warm, heart-felt Irish welcome.

There are plenty of tried-and-tested, well-structured afterschool activities. Different programmes and alternative offerings can always be further tailored to individual needs and worked out before you leave Italy. You will feel completely at home!


A gem in the heart of the Wild Atlantic Way, one of the most spectacular scenic drives in the world, on Ireland’s east coast, lying on the eponymous bay.

You can almost taste the past here, the flavour of history. emnants of mediaeval Galway — including the city walls, Lynch’s Castle and the famous Spanish Arch — give the city an ancient feel.

While there is no denying its wealth of history, the city buzzes with a cultured, contemporary atmosphere, with students making up a quarter of its population.
Galway is also a major port, and its restaurants’ menus invariably feature a plethora of seafood specialties. You can taste the sea spray on the breezes that sweep through the winding lanes dotted with shops and al fresco cafés.

The cultural variety that is a hallmark of the city — also known as the City of Equals for its part in promoting respect and understanding — makes it particularly captivating.
