The Hibernian Marine School, founded in 1776, catered for the schooling of orphans and children of seafaring men. The first meeting of the Board took place on the 6th June 1766 in the then Customs House (before James Gandon designed the current one). The building in which the meeting took place is on the site which now houses the Clarence Hotel. In 1904 the school moved to Seafield Road in Clontarf.Bertrand and Rutland School, itself an amalgamation of three girls schools, joined with the two above in 1972, to form Mount Temple.
Mount Temple is located around Mount Temple House, a building dating from 1863. The clock tower, designed by the architect of the campanile in Trinity College, is iconic of the school, and was immortalized in Christy Nolans novel “Under the Eye of the Clock”.

Homestays are carefully selected and offer students the opportunity to learn more about the local culture in a comfortable setting while studying English in Dublin. These homes are often between 25 - 50 minutes away from the school by public transport. Families usually offer affordable meal plans that allow you to sample the local cuisine. If you have special requests or diet restrictions (because of religion or health reasons), please let us know in advance. Your housing starts on the Sunday before your first day of class and ends on the Saturday after your last day of class, unless otherwise noted. Learn more about homestay housing
One of the best ways to learn more about the people of Ireland and England is to choose homestay accommodation. Family life is informal and the people are welcoming, friendly and talkative, so you will have plenty of opportunities to practise your English. Our homestays are carefully chosen by our Accommodation Officers and all homestays have been visited and approved by us. You will live in a house with a garden in a pleasant suburb close to good public transport. Students travel to and from school by bus or train. Having chosen a homestay suitable for you, details will be sent and we would suggest you make contact with them to confirm your arrival time. You will have a light breakfast and evening meal in your homestay. Dinner usually takes place between 6pm and 7pm which allows you to join our evening programme or take part in some of our activities during the long summer evenings. Homestays are conveniently located in mature suburbs near the school. All are convenient to public transport links.
We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.
Your letter of acceptance will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged 65 € when you register.
Please note that we do not book flights for our students. If you are researching airfare costs, we recommend using Kayak.com, a search engine that lets you compare flight options from your home country to Dublin based on your budget, schedule and preferences.
