One of DIT’s most historic buildings, Bolton Street was specifically designed and built for technical and technological education in 1911, on the site of what was once the European Hotel. Since then and up to the present day, it has been a centre of leading edge technological education in the College of Engineering and Built Environment. Located in Dublin’s north inner-city, Bolton Street is within minutes of shopping areas in Henry Street and Parnell Street, as well as the old city markets and the newly-refurbished Smithfield. Bolton Street and Linenhall, its sister building across the road, are home to students of architecture, mechanical and civil engineering, environmental planning and construction, from apprentice to postgraduate levels.
