Why Dublin?

Dublin welcomes you to experience life in the cultural and economic heart of Ireland. Known for its world-class art and music scene, your Irish education extends beyond the classroom when you listen to live music in Temple Bar or take in a show at the famed Abbey Theatre. See Irish literature come to life as you walk the same streets as authors George Bernard Shaw, Edna O'Brien, James Joyce, and William Butler Yeats.
