The isbi Schools Directory Guide To The Top Private Schools & Colleges In County Dublin

For anyone planning a move to or within County Dublin on the east coast of Ireland we have collated information below about different places to live, schools, estate agents and other information we think useful for relocating within this fantastic County Dublin.

Offering some of the best living anywhere in Ireland, County Dublin's famous Irish cities and towns include Dublin, Tallaght and Lucang.

County Dublin has a great choice of high quality UK private schools, beautiful countryside, lots of activities and excellent housing - with a fantastic range of different properties to call home, from country mansions and estates, cottages and bungalows to new build executive housing, family townhouses and apartments.

"Welcome to Dublin, a city that's as intimate as a village and as friendly as an Irish pub. Framed by mountains, centred on a river and edged by a beautiful bay, the city's streets and alleys are filled with vibrant art and historic buildings, hip cafés and traditional "old man" pubs, as Dubliners call them. Walk the streets and you'll feel the energy of over 1,000 years of history, as echoes of the Vikings mix with buzzing boutiques, cobbled streets reverberate with the sounds of buskers, and 18th century parks play host to festivals, film and food markets." Ireland.com

County Dublin lies on the east coast of Ireland, opening up to the Irish Sea. It is a relatively small county despite being Ireland’s most populous. County Dublin borders Meath to the north west, Kildare to the west and Wicklow to the south. 

Ireland’s famous stout, Guinness, is drunk across Dublin’s 650+ pubs! The company even has a 9,000 year lease on St James Gate, as signed by Arthur Guiness in 1759 - so those pubs are pretty well stocked!
