Accommodation in Dublin city is plentiful, and all students will find somewhere suitable to live. However, this can take time. Depending on individual preference, the student can share a bedroom or have his or her own apartment. Apartments and houses are available for all lifestyles and budgets.
ACD does not have on-campus accommodation, but we do have links with host families whose details we can provide. As a guide, we advise students that this costs approximately €190 per week, including breakfasts and evening meals during the week and three meals a day at the weekend, though ultimately the precise arrangements are a matter of agreement between the student and host family.
The following are the most popular sites to find your accommodation in Dublin.

American College Dublin is located near the LUAS (Dublin's tram service) and the DART (Dublin's suburban rail services). We are also well served by several different Dublin Bus routes. Good transport websites which will give you details on travel information to and from the college include - dublinbus.ie, irishrail.ie (DART), and luas.ie (TRAM). The DART serves areas out of the city centre like Clontarf, Killester, Harmonstown, Raheny, Kilbarrack, Sutton, Howth and Malahide. These are suburbs based on the Northside of Dublin. It serves areas like Sandymount, Booterstown, Blackrock, Monkstown and Dun Laoghaire in the Southside of Dublin.
