I really enjoyed my stay at DSE summer school in July 2011. I met many students from different countries. I had different teachers, but I liked all of them. Special thanks to Denis and Rebecca. I stayed with lovely family, Mary and Tony. They are really nice people, very kind and careful. They were my teachers too. Hope to come again next summer and to stay with them. Thank you.

I had the most unforgettable memories from my trip to Ireland and I have fallen in love with this beautiful country.  My mind has been blown away by the amazing views of green landscapes, fresh air and the power of the waves and wind at the Cliffs of Moher. I felt as if I was standing at the end of world. I had the most amazing time in Dublin School of English and I hope to return there again…

35 years of love with DSE. In 1977, I was 20 and I came with my father for 15 days at DSE for a 7 hours-a-day ONE-to-TWO course. What an experience, what a souvenir. Of course I hugely improved my English but I was speaking with my Father, and all day long (first time in my life) at the point of arriving at the French airport, we were still speaking together and in English. While I needed to “relearn” my English, I discovered with a lot of happiness DSE still exists. I’ve just spent 15 days in DUBLIN again for a 7 hours-a-day intensive course, and it was as good as it was 35 years ago. Thank you Conor and Neilan for teaching me so much, so quickly and in such a friendly way, mornings and afternoons. Thank you Paul for advising me so clearly. And thank you Sara for this so good reception. I’ve just decided I’ll be back next year, but at advanced level.

Multi Platinum selling Irish artist, Mundy and his band will perform from 6.30p.m. This concert is strictly on a first come first served basis as the capacity is limited. (2 photos)

Congratulations to Maria Egster who wins the DSE World Cup draw.

Maria from Brasil drew Germany. After the game-that-shall-not-be-spoken-of, I think it's really nice that a Brasilian won. :-)
