Atlas Language School Dublin

School

Award for the best English school in all of Europe in 2017 and 2019

Information

Atlas Language School was founded in Dublin in 2003 with just one classroom and one student but expanded very quickly to become one of the fastest-growing language schools in Ireland.

Atlas Language School´s first location was in the centre of Ranelagh; they had to move to a new place in Dublin as the premises became too small. It was the same scenario with the second location, and they had to move to a third location, the actual one in Portobello House, a beautiful landmark building in the heart of Dublin.

The new school in Portobello is a state-of-the-art facility with 24 classrooms, a student cafe, library, meditation room, computer lab, and a large student relaxation area. We welcome students from all around the world on a wide range of courses, including General English, Exam Preparation, and Junior Programmes.

Atlas is accredited by and recognised by ACELS, a service of Quality and Qualifications Ireland, for English language teaching (ELT) and EAQUALS, meeting high standards in all areas, including education, course programmes, as well as course organisation, testing and evaluation. The school is a member of MEI and ALTO and is accredited and recognised by Cambridge, TOEIC and Trinity College Examination Centres. As a great recognition of what we do, Atlas Language School has won the ST Star Awards for Best English Language School in Europe om 2017 and 2019.

The primary mission at Atlas Language School is for the students to have an unforgettable life and learning experience.

With excellent teachers and facilities, a comprehensive and fun social programme and a perfect central location, Atlas is The best English Language school to learn English in Dublin.
