The CAPA Dublin Program is based at Griffith College, with fully equipped classrooms, computer labs, library access, an on-campus cafeteria, gym and wireless internet throughout campus. Students on the CAPA Dublin Program can also access the Griffith College Student Union, which allows you to actively take part in clubs and societies, and go on subsidized excursions throughout Ireland and other European countries. The Griffith College campus is well served by public transportation, providing easy access to all parts of the city.

Ireland's capital is a cosmopolitan city, and offers everything - from the oldest to the most modern, from science to music, theater and art, and delightful Dubliners who are friendly and kind.
Student Life
You live on the Griffith College campus in residence halls, a short distance from classroom buildings and the cafeteria. If participating in the summer program, you will have the option to live in either a single homestay with breakfast and dinner or in shared furnished apartments within the city of Dublin.

*In the summer, students can choose to live with a host family.

CAPA hosts a number of activities each term to introduce you to the local culture. Through the MyEducation program, you are encouraged to go on walking tours of different parts of Dublin, attend guest lectures on current events, visit a variety of museums, and join other students at theatre nights and group dinners. CAPA also offers a workshop at the start of the term introducing you to the culture and history of Dublin.
