Summer residents


Stay in Ely this summer!

Every summer, many young students come to Dublin to improve their English. Ely University Centre is an ideal place to stay, as it is very conveniently located near most English language academies in the city centre. Moreover, Ely combines a serious study atmosphere with a relaxed friendly environment.


Weekly summer residence fees for students amount to €250 per week (professionals pay €320 per week). In order to secure a place, prospective residents must pay a €300 deposit, which will be refunded on their departure provided that:

  • all due fees have been paid;
  • the date of departure is not before the end of the place reservation.

Summer students must pay 4 weeks (or the duration of their stay) in advance.
