About Us

Dublin Cultural Institute has been providing top-quality English language training since 2004. We are a small, boutique school in the heart of Dublin, with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where students of any nationality will feel at home.

Our classrooms are bright and spacious, with views across the River Liffey and Dublin's main shopping area, O'Connell Street. We are located just minutes walk from the Spire and all the major sights and attractions of Dublin city centre, and surrounded by the eclectic mix of cafes, bars, restaurants and shops which make Dublin such a vibrant and exciting city in which to live and study.

Students are taught in small groups of international learners by our team of high motivated and expertly-trained teachers. Every student is regularly assessed and receives individual feedback from their teacher to ensure they are meeting their learning goals.

English language classes are tailored for levels ranging from Beginner to Advanced. We also offer Exam Preparation classes for the Cambridge Exams, IELTS and English for Business Communication courses. We offer a wide range of courses and many students who graduate from DCI go on to pursue third-level education at different colleges and universities in Ireland.

"DCI's approach to teaching exceeded my expectations, some schools don’t supply any structured lesson or classes while DCI ensures it’s business related or IELTS related. It’s very exam-oriented and focuses on the real life skills needed for a students future rather than just General English...The school is very attentive, the teachers are really dynamic and their feedback is definitely something I like to read every two weeks (as there’s a formal bi-weekly assessment) so I know where I need to improve."
