The Irish Education system is consistently ranked as one of the best in the world. It offers international students a diverse range of subjects and a dynamic environment in which to improve not only their English but many other skills.

All of our schools are registered with and inspected by the Department of Education and Science. Irish high schools can be public or private, mixed or single-sex, day or boarding. We help you to choose the school which best suits your needs.

As well as learning through school lessons, students have the option of taking extra English tutorials either through their school or at home within their host family. On many occasions the host family is that of a teacher.

We are located in Ireland’s thriving capital of Dublin which is known as one of the world’s friendliest cities. Although it is the capital, it retains its quaint atmosphere and in reality it is more like a large town. Its unique atmosphere provides you with a safe a comfortable place to learn and practice your English. The city centre is famous for it’s rich culture and the surrounding coastal towns are both serene and picturesque. Most of our High Schools and Host Families are located in these surrounding areas of Dublin, all of which are within at most a 20 minute train journey of the City Centre.
