Frequently asked questions about studying English in Ireland

Why learn English in Ireland?

Home to one of the friendliest cities in Europe, learning English in the capital of Ireland allows you to practice your skills in an English-speaking country whilst also feeling part of a community. In Dublin, you’ll be spoilt for choice over which pub to have a craic in, or which historical landmark to explore at the weekend. If you want to escape the city for a weekend, you can explore the rest of the “Emerald Isle” via train, coach or car, and discover the country’s vast mountains, fields and beaches.
