Advice and information
It is not advisable to agree to rent accommodation until you arrive in Dublin and actually see what you are being offered. Therefore you may wish to book temporary accommodation in advance of your arrival.
It may be useful to look at the transport system which will give you useful information on how to get to your particular college. You may also click on this map which will provide you with the location of each off-campus accommodation and other useful information including distance and directions to each college faculty. (This does not include private rented accommodation).
When choosing your accommodation consideration should be given to the location of the Faculty you are attending. Faculties, Bolton St, Cathal Brugha St and Mountjoy Square are situated on the northside near the city centre and Kevin St, Aungier St and Rathmines are situated on the southside. The uneven postal area numbers 1,3,5,7 etc are located in Dublin north and the even numbers are located in Dublin south. Dublin 1 and 2 are city centre (north and south respectively)
