Dublin Cultural Institute (DCI) is a small, customer-focused school situated in the heart of Dublin overlooking the River Liffey and O’Connell Street, the city’s principal thoroughfare. The windows of the bright and comfortable classrooms in this historic building allow spectacular views of the river and downtown area. The atmosphere is welcoming and supportive. Every student receives a personalised service and the DCI team are familiar with each individual’s learning needs and goals. DCI offers innovative, enjoyable and results-driven programmes for learners who wish to improve their English for the purpose of fulfilling their career and academic potential. Classes are taught by experienced and enthusiastic native speakers with postgraduate teaching qualifications. Since changing ownership in 2019, DCI has quickly established excellent word-of-mouth feedback thanks to the quality of the teaching staff and the warmth and helpfulness of the host families and customer service team. Dublin Cultural Institute (DCI) is fully accredited by ACELS/Quality and Qualification Ireland for English Language Teaching.
