English Courses in Dublin

Enroll in EF’s English courses in Dublin and discover a distinctly Irish city with an international feel.

Study English in Dublin and absorb Irish culture in Ireland’s largest and most-important city. EF’s English courses in Dublin are located in the heart of the city, on the open green space of Fitzwilliam Square. From here you’ll be a short walk from the manicured gardens of St. Stephen’s Green, the River Liffey, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the campus of Trinity College. 

Our English courses in Dublin take place in a beautiful and historic Georgian townhouse. EF Dublin boasts modern facilities, including 18 spacious classrooms, two multimedia rooms, a large lecture hall and a student lounge. Outside of their language courses, most of our students can be found in the onsite cafeteria, lounging in our private backyard area or picnicking in the square.

Ireland’s Charming Capital

Dublin is Ireland’s cultural, political, and business capital. About one out of every four Irish residents lives in the Irish capital. If it’s happening in Ireland, it’s most likely occurring in Dublin. The city is home to dozens of universities, with the most prestigious, Trinity College, smack in the center of downtown. Dublin is split in two by the River Liffey, whose banks are flanked by stately townhouses and storefronts. 

Outside of your English courses in Dublin, step into the city and experience the warmth of Irish people for yourself. Spark a conversation with a shop owner at the boutiques along Grafton and O’Connell streets. Dance the Irish jig to traditional music in a Temple Bar pub. Visit the Guinness factory and listen as a tour guide waxes poetic about Ireland’s favorite beverage. On the weekends, go beyond city limits to discover the rolling green hills, medieval castles, quaint villages, and craggy cliffs of the Irish countryside.

Student life in Dublin

Dublin is one of Europe’s most atmospheric cities and its blend of students, young professionals and artists lends an energy that outshines cities twice its size. Dublin is always buzzing with life, from the city’s parks and river crossings to its pubs and art galleries. EF’s activities coordinators will point you towards the very best that Ireland’s capital has to offer.

Sightseeing & CultureShoppingSports & OutdoorsExcursionsEntertainment & Nightlife
Spend an afternoon at Dublin Castle, the imposing stone fortress that was once the seat of British rule. Tour Kilmainham Gaol, a prison turned museum with a remarkable role in Irish history. Stroll across Dublin’s oldest pedestrian crossing, the whimsical Ha’penny Bridge. Mingle with local students at Trinity College, Ireland’s most prestigious university before swinging by Temple Bar, home to cultural institutions and rowdy pubs. Walk through the hushed aisles of Christ Church Cathedral and sip a pint of Ireland’s favorite beverage at the Guinness Storehouse.
Dublin’s best shopping street is undoubtedly Grafton Street, a historic and charming throughway lined with independent boutiques and brand-name stores. Stephen’s Green Shopping Center is located directly adjacent to St. Stephen’s Green Park, an epicenter of city life.
Ireland’s magnificent coastline and mountains are easily accessible from central Dublin, meaning afternoons of sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, cycling and hiking are never far away. In the city proper, our students lounge around the emerald green spaces of St. Stephen’s Green and gather for EF’s weekly “football Friday” matches among students. Watching a Gaelic football match at Croke Park is also a must.
Ireland’s countryside is as idyllic as it gets. Catch your breath along the Cliffs of Moher, as the island dramatically drops off into the Atlantic Ocean. Dangle upside down as you kiss the famous lucky stone at Blarney Castle. Tour the medieval village of Kilkenny and experience the vibrant nightlife of Galway. And hop across the Irish Sea for a visit the world capital of London.
Dublin’s nightlife revolves around the pub and live music. Dance the Irish jig in a traditional pub in the cobblestoned Temple Bar district. Catch an international or Irish movie at the Irish Film Institute. And dance the night away in a Harcourt Street nightclub.
