We often get asked by potential English language students about the benefits of studying in a town versus a city school.  We are based in a town and have put together 6 reasons why studying in our English Language School is the best option for you.

  1. Lower living costs

Accommodation, language schoolFor long term English language students, one of the biggest advantages of studying English in Bundoran is the cost of living. Compared to popular city destinations like Dublin, Cork and Galway, Bundoran rents are much lower.  In Dublin, the average monthly rent for a two-bedroom apartment is around 1900 euros, in Bundoran you can rent an apartment for around 600 euros.

You also save on the cost of transport since you can walk everywhere.

Lastly, the minimum wage in Ireland is the same throughout the country, so ultimately you will be left with more money in your pocket!


  1. Meet the locals

Living in Donegal, gives you the opportunity to get a real immersion into the Irish way of life. Our English Language school is actively involved in the community and tries to involve our students as much as possible in local life through volunteer work, beach cleans, monthly meet the experts and much more.

When here, don’t be surprised if when walking down the street everyone greets you, from the postman to the shop assistants.  Everyone is very friendly and willing to learn more about you, thus creating a greater opportunity to practice English, whilst getting to know the local culture, and feeling more at home.
