Study alongside other students in their thirties at our fantastic partner school just steps from the heart of Dublin! The 30+ programme was especially designed so that students over age 30 with similar interests and life experience could come together in an English class that facilitates participation and lively discussion. The building boasts 4 modern and bright classrooms on a separate floor just for 30+ students, plus a lounge, study area, library and free Wi-Fi. There’s a café right next door where you can get your tea or coffee fix, or bring your breakfast or lunch and dine in the student lounge with your peers. When class is over, you can stroll up to St Stephen’s Green, shop along Grafton Street or go for a pint in Temple Bar!

Dublino è una città meravigliosa e la sua popolazione ti ruba il cuore, gentili e pronti ad aiutarti in caso di difficoltà Ottimo metodo che si comprende anche con poca conoscenza della lingua Inglese. Questo grazie agli insegnanti che coinvolgono molto la classe. Hai paura quando scegli di abitare presso una famiglia, perché hai mille dubbi. Prima perché il mio Inglese è pessimo e poi, io ho 51 anni e ho le mie abitudini. Ma io sono stata super fortunata ad incontrare la famiglia Grey, mi hanno accolto con calore e gioia. Abbiamo instaurato subito un bellissimo rapporto e mi hanno coinvolto nelle loro conversazioni e cosi facendo ho potuto apprendere meglio l'Inglese oltre al corso. Karen è un ottima cuoca e insieme a suo marito Ray mi hanno viziato. Vi dirò, che mi è dispiaciuto lasciarli, ma grazie a WhatsApp siamo ancora in contatto tutt'ora. Condividere le attività proposte dalla scuola, si instaura un rapporto di amicizia con i compagni di classe e gli insegnanti ed hai occasioni per parlare l'Inglese al di fuori della scuola. Grazie a voi per la vostra professionalità e serietà.

Host family
If you want to maximise your language progress, staying with a friendly Irish host family is the perfect way to do it! You’ll essentially become another member of the family, who will welcome you into their home where you’ll have your own private room with either its own bathroom or one in the hallway that you’ll share with the family. You’ll be provided with bed linens and towels, and for meals, you can choose between just breakfast or half board. Your commute time to school will range from 15-45 minutes by public transport.

LIV Dublin comfort residence
If you want to be right in the heart of the action in the centre of Dublin, this is a great option! Enjoy your independence in an en suite single room with a double bed and free bed linen, a wardrobe, desk and chair. Get in a workout at the onsite gym, cook meals in the spacious shared kitchen, play a game of air hockey or foosball with your fellow residents or unwind on the comfy sofas and watch a movie in the TV lounge. You’ll also enjoy the large courtyard with a ping-pong table, free Wi-Fi, laundry facilities and 24/7 security. Your commute time to school will range from 20-30 minutes by public transport.

When it comes to things to do and see, Dublin is an endless source of entertainment! Take advantage of the free activities organised by the school, including walking tours of the city, pub nights where you’ll explore Dublin’s legendary bars and an intro to Gaelic football in the park. Don’t miss going cycling or horseback riding through Phoenix Park, tasting Ireland’s favourite drinks at the Guinness Storehouse and the Jameson Distillery, discovering the ancient Book of Kells in Trinity College and listening to live Irish folk music! If you’re looking to get out of town, don’t miss the Cliff Walk from Bray to Greystones for gorgeous scenery, or the charming fishing village of Howth, famous for its amazing seafood.
