Accommodation Service

If you need help finding accommodation, we’re here to help. This applies particularly for students coming from overseas as it can be difficult to work out what the best options are within close vicinity to the school. As part of our service, we’re happy to work with you to find suitable accommodation options within your budget.

If you would like us to help you organise accommodation for the duration of your course, please call us on +353 (0)1 2100 555 or email us at
