Exceptional Seven Day Boarding for UK Students in Ireland
Welcome to Clongowes Wood College SJ, Ireland’s leading seven day boarding school for boys from the UK, Ireland and further afield.
Families from the UK have for generations chosen Clongowes to provide immersive and holistic education for their sons. Clongowes is a special place that for over 200 years has educated boys to the highest standards and in the best traditions of Jesuit schooling, facilitating the development of young men of competence, conscience, compassion and commitment.
Clongowes is set in beautiful surroundings on 550 acres just 30 miles from Dublin airport allowing quick and easy transport links with the UK.
At the heart of a Clongowes education is the attention placed on the individual student as we strive to develop the potential and distinct talents of each boy.
Students at Clongowes benefit from an excellent academic programme along with a broad range of co-curricular activities including music, the arts and sport. Our graduates go on to study in leading Universities in Ireland, the UK, Europe and the USA.
