Palmerston Park

About Palmerston Park

Our Palmerston Park school is located in the beautiful residential neighbourhood of Rathgar, in the south of Dublin. Set in its own beautifully landscaped gardens, our school overlooks one of Dublin’s oldest public parks, Palmerston Park, which dates from 1894. Our school combines the gracious feel of its original Victorian mansion with its custom-designed modern facility, to create a student-centred, stress-free learning environment.
