What our students said about Dublin

5.0

Rating: 5/5

I fell in love with this city full of life and interesting architecture. It is well connected and the locals are very friendly and welcoming. There are many places to visit in the city itself: museums, the James Joyce Centre, Trinity College as well as outside: beaches along the coast, castles e.g. Malahide Castle, cliffs e.g. Howth. Life in the pubs is buzzing in the afternoon - live music draws people in and encourages them to party together.

Just a lovely city which I highly recommend. Many different things to do, so for everyone should be something interesting available. Lots of public transports and nice people anyway. The city is big but not too big so you can see a lot by walking around. Nice pubs, friendly and open minded people and for me a city we should have seen once in life.

There are certain areas which can be unsafe, and there are lots of homeless people and people drinking and smoking everywhere. It's also difficult to speak English with locals as there are a huge number of foreign people living there. It's expensive to live there too. However, there are beautiful places to visit in the city and along the coast.

Dublin is the most expensive city in Europe that I have seen so far. There is a lot of fast food - very unhealthy! The pubs are very casual but at the same time expensive. There are very interesting double buses that run very often, but the tickets are insanely expensive!

I liked Dublin, it is a city I would gladly return to. There are so many activities and things to see, it's easy to visit either by public transport or on foot. It is a very young city. A bit expensive for Italian wages.

Very interesting, lots to see. The city is not too big and therefore very well laid out. All the important points are within easy walking distance.

It was not possible to use the bikes neither in the centre nor outside due to the massive amount of busses, which cost an arm and a leg.

What school directors said about Dublin

Jonathan Quinn

Dublin is a very historic city but it is very young at heart. The city has a thriving social, musical and cultural scene. Our famous pubs are a huge attraction and create a wonderful atmosphere around our city.

Jonathan QuinnDirector of Centre of English Studies (CES), lives in Dublin since 1995

Dublin has a young, vibrant and friendly nature, allowing people to quickly feel at home. Dublin has been voted Third Friendliest City in the World.

Mauro BiondiDirector of Emerald Cultural Institute, lives in Dublin since 1980

Dublin is a lively, friendly hub with many cultural, musical , and historical attractions for international students to enjoy.

Dr Rachael FiondaDirector of UCD English Language Academy, lives in Dublin since 1989

Ireland is an increasingly popular destination for students looking to study English, and thanks to Ireland’s position as a multicultural and progressive country, non-EU students also have the chance to gain work experience while studying on a full time course. The Irish are known for their friendly and helpful disposition, and the country boasts breath-taking scenery, historic towns and cities, wonderful cultural diversity and incredible areas of natural beauty. That is why Ireland is fast becoming one of the most popular study and work destinations in the world!

Andreza Rocha de RezendeDirector of OHC English , lives in Dublin since 2018

found the lessons super entertaining and also liked the method of explaining a word in English and thus improving my vocabulary very well.
More water dispensers, possibly book sales = you can sell a used book with an indication of the chapters worked on and another classmate who joins at a different time can continue to use this book.

Information about Dublin

Why Dublin? Dublin is a energetic and cultural capital. It has a lot to offer such as theatres, art galleries and historic sights. The city also hosts the Customs House, the Four Courts and St. Patrick's Cathedral. The Irish are known for their friendliness and this is very evident in their capital. Why not frequent with the locals by trying their famous beverage, Guinness, in one of the many pubs around the capital. Learn more about this unique drink in the Guinness Storehouse Factory. Dublin is a very manageable size for a capital and is a great base to explore all this beautiful country has to offer!
What we like about Dublin

One thing for sure is that you will have a good craic in Dublin! The social life here is fantastic with a lively night scene full of locals in their famous Irish pubs.Irish people are extremely friendly and it is easy to integrate into a group of friends. The city is a much more manageable size than other capital cities, such as London. It is easy to navigate and accommodation options will not be so far from your school of choice. Aside from the few hot spots for tourist crime, the city is safe, but it is still best to err on the side of caution especially at night. Dublin is home to a well connected International Airport. It is close to the centre and there are plenty of bus connections to bring you to and from the city. So book your flights now and grab a Guinness in one of the local pubs!

What we dislike about Dublin

Dublin has an extensive network of public transport, which unfortunately is not the most reliable and at times can be slow. The city is small though, so students may not need to rely on public transport to get to where they want to go. A popular expression for the weather in Dublin is that there are 4 seasons in one day. The climate is often changeable with little warning. It is best to be prepared for all eventualities when leaving your accommodation in the morning.
