About student living in Dublin

Ireland’s lively capital city certainly has a lot to offer for students, from things to do to places to eat and explore. Here’s a summary of what this eclectic city has to offer:

Food and Drink

Some of the city's must-sample foods include traditional Irish stew, soda bread, black and white pudding and of course - Guinness. Each student housing area in Dublin has its own selection of cafes, bars and restaurants, but the city centre is the place if you want to be spoiled for choice.


To enjoy a good knees up in Dublin and socialise with other students, the bars on Camden Street are a good place to start. Mexican Club Xico is a cool underground bar where many students gather to party, or Opium - a refurbished nightclub which hosts different DJs throughout the month.


Being the beating heart of Ireland - Dublin has some great culture to explore and absorb when you live in the city. You can visit the Old Jameson Distillery for a tour, visit the Abandoned Prison of Kilmainham Gaol or spend a few hours exploring the Little Museum of Dublin.


For mainstream, high-street shopping from all the recognisable brands - head to the Jervis Shopping Centre or Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre. To shop local and support independents, the markets are your best bet - and Dublin’s not short of them. The Liberty Market, Farmleigh Food Market and Temple Bar Market are all well worth a visit and offer something completely different.
