The Dublin area

An exchange year isn’t just a year in your life, it’s a life in one year

Hannes from Germany

Dublin city – the capital of Ireland. Dublin is a relatively small capital city, with a population of approximately 550,000, and it’s easy to find your way around. Despite its small size, you’ll find everything you need in Dublin, from modern shops and activities, to history and culture.

County Dublin stretches to the North, South and West of the city, including commuter towns and villages, and you may find yourself placed in a rural or semi-rural area up to an hour away from the city centre.
There are plenty of attractions in the area, and wherever you are placed in County Dublin, you will have a great base from which to experience Dublin city as well as the rest of Ireland.

Life in Dublin

The charming, lively city of Dublin! Culture, sports, music and activities. There is loads to see and do in this friendly city, which is easy to navigate on foot. You'll live with one of our host families either in the suburbs or in a smaller town close to Dublin - with public transport links to the city itself.
