Information

English language school in Dublin 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.

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