Kenilworth Language Institute

The language school Kenilworth Language Institute was founded in Dublin, Ireland in 1996. Our school has two year-round centres. One is situated in front of a lovely park in Rathgar, one of the best areas of Dublin, just 3 kilometres from the city centre, so students get the best of both worlds: a quiet place to study and all the fun and energy of the city. The other is on Coppinger Row, in the heart of the city centre, a bohemian and very cool district to be in!

The school address is: 4 Kenilworth Square, 6 - Dublin (Ireland).

Other comments: 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 friendly relationship with teachers and with the director. Small classes allows you a more direct learning.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The first day you get to Dublin, look for a bus card for the weeks you stay. Taking buses all the time is unavoidable!
Other comments: 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).
the teachers are very friendly

Other comments: Days are very well organised because we have the choice to stay at the school on afternoons or to go out. It's a good way to help students discovering the city. We then split the day : on mornings theoretical knowledge and on afternoons practise.
