Unique ‘boutique’ schools
Looking for the best place for your studies? You have found it. ISI Dublin is the place to be! We believe your learning space should be an inspirational one. ISI occupies two uniquely styled year-round centres in Dublin, Meetinghouse Lane and Parnell Square.
ISI Meetinghouse Lane
Our Meetinghouse Lane Centre is located in the city centre in an 18th century stone warehouse, converted into a school in 2001. Its interior combines original stone walls and wooden floors with a sleek and modern design. The walls are covered by inspirational art pieces and murals by local artists. Both upcylced and designer furniture are used in the student recreational areas to create a ‘cool café/bar’ feeling.
If you cross Grattan Bridge and you’ll find yourself in the internationally-renowned Temple Bar. Its cobblestone streets are lined with a combination of charming pubs, cafes, restaurants, independent theatres, designer crafts stores, music venues and night clubs. Within a short walk from Meetinghouse Lane you can visit The Guinness Storehouse which produces the world-famous black beer and is one of the country’s biggest tourist attractions, while just around the corner, you can also learn about Ireland’s signature whiskey, Jameson, which originated at a local distillery.

ISI Parnell Square
Our Parnell Square Centre is housed in a beautiful, redbrick, Georgian building just 10 minutes’ walk from Meetinghouse Lane. The building combines large & ornate period rooms with modern furniture & artwork to create a wonderful and authentic learning space. The area around the school is steeped in Irish history, with many of the neighbouring buildings playing host to significant scenes of the Easter rising of 1916, Ireland's fight for independence.
In the heart of Parnell Square, across from our Parnell Square Centre, sits the Garden of Remembrance, a peaceful city park commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1916 Rising, decorated with celtic artwork and towering sculptures. In addition to its history, around the corner lies Moore Street, famous for its fruit and vegetable stalls. The bustling Henry street shopping area lies adjacent, featuring all the top high street names and brands.
