ABOUT DUBLIN AND DUN LAOGHAIRE (pronounced “done leery”)
Live and study in Dún Laoghaire, an enchanting coastal town located 7 miles south of Dublin City. Explore the splendid harbor, hike the surrounding rolling hills, and experience the magnificent coastal views. Visit the National Maritime Museum, the James Joyce Tower and Museum, and take in the living history performances at Dalkey Castle. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains or hop on the DART (Dublin Area Rapid Transit) and within 20 minutes be in the heart of the thriving capital city. From the historic to the modern, Dún Laoghaire is your doorway into your new life in Eire. During your time on the program you will also have the opportunity to attend the Festival of World Cultures, an annual two day event featuring hundreds of artists and performers from around the world in free concerts at various locations throughout Dun Laoghaire.
Together with the splendid harbor and surrounding rolling hills, Dún Laoghaire is the ideal place in which to spend your time in Ireland. Both a Victorian and a Modern town, Dún Laoghaire has played an important part in the development of Modern Ireland. The town, with its thriving commercial centre, has the advantage of being beside the sea offering magnificent coastal views.
