When we asked about the schools in Ireland, they said...

"The international school scene in Ireland is thrilling, with top-notch educational options for expat families and locals alike. For example, the Dublin International School (DIS) offers a high quality international education intertwined with Irish culture and language. Located in Dublin’s south side, the DIS students represent more than 64 different nationalities and benefit from a broad and balanced curriculum, small class sizes and experienced teachers. In addition, the school provides a wide variety of extracurricular activities and summer camps, from sports to culture. Dublin also offers a unique bilingual opportunity for locals and expats alike: the O’Fiaich College Dundalk. This is an Irish-English bilingual college, which offers Primary and Secondary Education, and also boasts a variety of excellent facilities such as a library, sports activities and an arts centre. It is a fantastic way to gain an international education while also immersing in the Irish language and culture. Galway is home to the world leading and globally recognized International Study Centre (ISC) at NUI Galway. ISC students are welcomed into an open, stratified and academically vibrant community of learners and teachers. The ISC offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and a range of subject programmes in a natured and inclusive environment, which is unique in Ireland. Finally, the European University of Ireland in Cork is a unique student experience combining world-class teaching and research, with cultural experience and beautiful environment. The EUI provides excellent qualifications in a wide range of subjects, from Business Management and Economics to Communication Technologies, Social Sciences and the Arts," explained one expat living in Ireland.

"A great school. The best in the area f clonsilla and Blanchardstown. Just enroll early as you will battel to get a place," said one parent with children at Hartstown secondary school in Dublin.
