The school is located 8 minutes from the accommodations by car. It is far if you plan to walk and it is complicated if you plan to take the bus.

Good and easy-going teachers, especially Eleonor, Paula, Chiara and David. The house. The methodology. The outings. The peers.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Don't be nervous, let the teachers do the work, especially at the beginning, until you get used to the accent. That was the most difficult part for me.

I stayed 3 months at Kelilworth Institute and I can definitely say that it's probably one of the best english schools in Dublin (I met a lot of people in Dublin who were also taking english lessons in others schools less attractive...)

The best thing about the school is the way they treat you. You feel as if you were home because if you have a problem they help you out. I had many questions and doubts regarding how to look for a job and a place to live and they truly guided me through it.

Go and see by yourself. You will not be disappointed with this school.

I could say many things but, mainly, as I said before, the warmness and personal approach from the teachers as well as the quality of their teaching.

The school is small and nice. In my course studied only seven people. The teachers were really friendly, patient, creative and always prepared to lessons.
Other comments
At Kenilworth you feel like a part of a big family. The school director and teacher Colm Maguire and the Administration Officer Ann Phelan are working really hard to make the lessons and stay as interesting and enjoyable as possible and they do a great job. My daughter attended in the same time as me the course for teenagers in Summer Centre at Terenure College. She improved her English and had a fantastic time during her stay as well.. I recommend Kennilworth to everybody who wants to learn lots of English and have lots of fun. I am sure you won't waste your time and money.

My host family was just fantastic. I felt really at home! I could not have had a better family. I think it's the best type of accommodation because it allows you to learn more about Irish culture and traditions, but above all to improve your English because you have many more opportunities to practise it.

The first day you get to Dublin, look for a bus card for the weeks you stay. Taking buses all the time is unavoidable!

If you are young enough (18-21), you may like to visit Terenure College, the junior Kenilworth School. You'll find more young people to share your free time in the afternoons (playing sports or doing some trips to the city centre) and at nights (You will always remember Trinity College, O'Connell Street and Temple Bar).

This school is great. Teachers are very very friendly, they are very near to their students, they help us in what they can if you ask for something they always help you without any problem. I encourage everybody to go to this school, it is wonderful. Of course you have to work and study but as teachers are so good it´s easier learn and pay attention in class.
