Dublin

Dublin is a nice, safe and welcoming city with an excellent quality of life. Its atmosphere is Young and vibrant. The city’s friendliness is well known, as well as its cultural, literary and musical heritage. It’s a very good choice for Young students who are looking forward to improving their English and discover new things.

In this city, you’ll be able to walk by Liffey river, descover Temple Bar’s bohemian and bussy neighbourhood, enjoy street performances in both O’Connell and Grafton street, visit the amazing green parks and learn about its viking heritage in Dublinia, an interactive museum.
