the way of teaching: very dedicated and sympathetic teachers have been - absolutely at eye level - communicated with us significantly, in other words: the foreign language in everyday life, or in communication over interesting topics made relevant, thus creating the possibility of using it to improve your own handling.

In summer the teachers go on vacation and the continuous change of professors leads to a discontinuity in the lessons and in the program
Other comments
In Kenilworth school, I had a very great time. I met fantastic people! Available professors and sociable students . A beautiful and unique experience that I will never forget, just like Mrs. Betty that hosted me. The irish landscapes are unique in the world, where the atmosphere that you find there is not found anywhere else. Irish people are a friendly people and always ready to lend a hand.

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.

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).
