Housing Information

ISA Housing provides the opportunity for students to experience aspects of the Dublin lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor of Ireland. All of our housing options are within walking distance to University College Dublin, Trinity College Dublin, and Maynooth University.

The experience of living in another culture will be both educational and rewarding so long as you stay open-minded and reasonable. There are differences in culture and lifestyle between life in Ireland and the U.S. that will quickly become apparent upon your arrival. Remember: the key to a positive experience is flexibility!
