DCI Book Club

The DCI Book Club is for anyone who loves to grab a book from the shelf, curl up in a nook and whittle the hours away lost in another world. Reading is a hobby we strongly encourage at Dublin Cultural Institute. Not only is it fun but reading is a great way to improve your English.

Ireland is known for its rich use of the English language and some of the greatest writers in literature history have been Irish. From James Joyce, Bram Stoker and Oscar Wilde along with many others, their different writing styles have influenced the world.


Reading doesn’t have to be a solo hobby and at the DCI Book Club, students and teachers will gather at Dublin Cultural Institute each week to discuss and share their thoughts on the books they’re currently reading together. The students will write reviews in English to recommend stories they’ve loved the most to others to read.

The DCI Book Club is a social activity for our students to have fun, make friends and use to develop the English language skills that they’re learning at Dublin’s language school. All you have to bring is an enthusiasm for reading.
