Our multinational classes with CELTA (or equivalent) qualified teachers will prepare you to use English in ‘real world’ situations and take into account your interests, strengths and weaknesses, as well as your short and long term goals.

Apollo English only policy: the best way to learn English is to speak only English, so it is our policy that everyone always speaks English in the classroom and accommodation, around the school and during activities & excursions.

The Apollo Experience’ continues outside the school when you will visit the best attractions that Ireland has to offer and get involved in the Apollo social programme with our fantastic Apollo Experience staff.

Parents/Guardians of Apollo Young Learners: you will be invited to a private Facebook group where you will receive daily updates, photos and videos from the junior programme your son/daughter is attending.

Why study in Dublin?

With a population of just over 4 million, there must be some very good reasons why Ireland receives approx. 7 million tourists per year to its small island. The Lonely Planet travel guide recently named Ireland as the World’s Friendliest Country in a list of top travel destinations.  They say that visitors are in for a treat and that Irish people have a great sense of humour, welcoming nature and ability to have fun in good or bad times.

Although Ireland is a small country, there’s a staggering amount to see and do and its compact size makes it easy to travel around. The easy going locals you’ll find along the way live up to their reputation as being one of the friendliest people in the world.  Getting to know the Irish is like finding a friend for life.

Ireland’s history and world famous culture stretches back for thousands of years. From turbulent land wars to tragic famines, the country’s past is written all over the land with an exceptional variety of historical attractions, which are guaranteed to fascinate the visitor.

The Irish people are very proud of their country and consider it an honour to welcome foreigners & tourists to Ireland.

Take the Map Test when you visit – stand on an Irish street holding a map and looking lost and count how many minutes it will take for a stranger to ask you if you need help. We guarantee that you won’t be waiting too long!
