Griffith College – Dublin – Ages 16-20

Overlooking Dublin’s famous Grand Canal, this halls of residence is an urban campus steeped in history. Just 15 minutes walk from St. Stephen’s Green in Dublin city centre, boasting an enviable central location.

It was originally an Army Barracks dating from the 1830’s. This new apartment complex is modern in every detail, yet the
tasteful design in granite and red brick reflects the beautiful qualities of the original listed buildings. Residents can enjoy,
