Centres in Ireland & UK

Dublin is home to our two year-round adult schools and six junior summer centres, all in prime locations in the heart of the city itself or in one of its beautiful residential areas. Our three UK junior centres are all easily accessible from London and its main airports and offer stunning, uniquely historical locations.

Why choose Emerald?

“Emerald Cultural Institute is one of those schools that never fails to impress. Such care is taken over every single aspect of the operation. This visit meant that QE saw, once again, how the school sets a very high standard in the industry. Even this is not good enough for them, though, as they embark on an ambitious phase of further development.”
