Housing and Meals

Maynooth is Irelandís only university town and this thriving market town with the striking Maynooth Castle at its heart is a wonderful place to live and study. The University campus combines both old and new, the historic beauty of eighteenth and nineteenth century buildings alongside modern research and teaching facilities offering students the very best of both worlds.

A short train or bus ride away is the bustling, cosmopolitan Dublin where your AIFS program will begin with a sightseeing tour, a welcome meal and of course a visit to the famed Guinness Storehouse.

Cultural Activities

Learning does not begin or end in the classroom. To help you get a true taste of Irish culture, various activities will be organized such as:

  • A guided walking tour of Maynooth
  • Traditional Irish music night
  • A sporting event or a theater performance
