Over the past few months Ireland has experienced an increase in Covid-19 cases. At the beginning of the year, the Irish Government decided that Ireland will be placed at level 5 of the plan “Living with Covid”.

At level 5, the public health risk means that people are asked to stay at home, with some exceptions.As consequence of this, classes in International House Dublin have moved our online from this Monday 4th January. 

Level 5 restrictions have now been extended until 5th April 2021.

We have been endeavoring to do our best for our current students and for our partners. During the building closure, we will be providing online tuition for all levels. We are excited to return to our face-to-face classes once the Government deem it safe to. We are in direct contact with all our students who are currently in Dublin, and are working closely with our team and partners to ensure that everyone has the best possible experience in these extraordinary circumstances we all face. 

Since our initial school building re-opening on 27th July and recent re-opening on 7th December, International House Dublin has rolled out a full re-opening plan and policies and procedure strategy on how we will move forward in a safe and healthy environment for both our student and staff members.
