Our Dublin West summer centre accommodation is made up of 2, 4, or 6 bedded en-suite rooms. The rooms are bright and airy with views over either the grounds of the school or the internal courtyard.  

Each room is ensuite and has wardrobes for the students to use. The rooms with 2 or 4 beds have a shower, toilet and handwash basin.
