Clongowes Wood College

Jesuit education in Ireland since 1814.

Clongowes is Ireland’s leading 7 day boarding school for boys aged from 12 years old. A Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, they aim to develop young men of conscience, compassion and competence. They offer a broad academic programme as well as a diverse co-curricular programme of sports, drama, debating and music. They focus on ‘the care of the individual’ – nourishing each boy’s talents and supporting them on a pastoral level. Clongowes is a very special place, set in 550 acres just 40 minutes from Dublin airport.
