The best English school you'll find in Ireland. Great teachers, well orientated staff and all the infrastructure that you may need. I took the six months advanced English course and have no complaints about it.

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.

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…
