INFORMATION (link for some fine photos of Dublin city centre)
Most of our Dublin based courses take place in exclusive
areas of north and south Dublin and in accommodation located very conveniently
to the city and places of interest. Dublin has a population of over one
and a half million people and the centre is quite compact. This makes
it very easy to visit and most places are within walking distance once
you are in the city centre which is served by trams and buses.
The city is beautifully located around a sweeping bay at the mouth of
the famous river Liffey. It is a city that is steeped in tradition and
well regarded by visitors as a friendly and lively capital. The main attraction
of Dublin is probably the people who live and work here! You will never
be far away from someone to help you if you need directions or assistance.
A visit to one of the many music bars is a must during your visit. For
more serious sightseeing you can visit Trinity College and see the famous
Book of Kells, Dublin Castle and the National Museum with all its treasures
not forgetting the Guinness Storehouse and Jameson Distillery. Your teacher
will provide you with information about the city and the places of interest
you might like to visit. You can view a list of websites for some interesting

When you arrive you should be aware that Dublin Airport is located to
the North of the city and there are frequent private coach and public
bus services to the centre and south of the city. A private operator-
Aircoach - operates coaches every 15 minutes to the centre and south of
the city for €9 single/€14 return on-line or €10 single/€16
return if purchased on the bus (www.aircoach.ie).
The public transport operator - Dublin Bus - operates a number of services
from the airport including the 747 service to the city centre from immediately
outside the Arrivals building in front of Terminals 1 and 2.
Taxis are numerous but a little expensive and cost approximately €50/€60
to the south of the city. It is generally cheaper to request the taxi
driver to drive through the city rather than the M50 motorway when travelling
to the south city and county. Every taxi is fitted with a meter under
law and make sure you request a receipt.
For travelling to and from the city centre during your stay there
is a tram which runs from the city centre (St. Stephen's Green)
to Central Park in the south of the city on the Green Line. The
journey time from/to the city centre is 20 minutes approximately
with trams running every 5 minutes at peak times and every 10 minutes
at other times. Central Park station is a 5 minute walk from us
here in Foxrock. The fare is €5.20 for a return ticket or €23.10
(subject to change) for a weekly ticket allowing unlimited travel
on the Dublin tram system (LUAS).
We also offer courses in Cork, Galway and other locations in Ireland.
