The Irish College of English is located in Malahide, a beautiful affluent town on Dublin’s Coastline. Malahide is just 22 minutes by Dart to Dublin City Centre and 10 minutes from Dublin Airport. Uniquely, our school offers students the opportunity to experience the best of Dublin while living with host families in walking distance of our school. Our team strive to ensure students and leaders have an amazing experience during their stay with us. We were voted ‘Best Language School in Ireland 2019’ by students based on Google and Facebook ratings. We were the First language school in Ireland to be shortlisted for the Study Travel Magazine Star Awards – Junior Course Under 18’s Award in 2015 and were shortlisted in 2016, 2017 and 2019. We were shortlisted for English Language School Europe in 2017 and 2019 and awarded 2nd place in the ‘Best Language School’ category at The Irish Education Awards 2020.
