Colleges & Universities In Dublin

The Land of Saints & Scholars

Ireland has forever been associated with famous scholars and academics and this is never more apparent than in the various learning institutions around the country. Below we have listed some of the more prominent colleges and universities in the country's capital, many of which are within walking distance of the hotel's lobby.

Trinity College

Trinity College is today in the centre of Dublin within 15 mins walk of Academy Plaza Hotel. At the beginning of the new century, it embarked on a radical overhaul of academic structures to reallocate funds and reduce administration costs, resulting in, for instance, the mentioned reduction from six to five to eventually three faculties under a subsequent restructuring by a later governing authority. The ten-year strategic plan prioritises four research themes with which the college seeks to compete for funding at the global level. Comparative funding statistics reviewing the difference in departmental unit costs and overall costs before and after this restructuring are not however apparent. The Hamilton Mathematics Institute in Trinity College, named in honour of William Rowan Hamilton, was launched in 2005 and aims to improve the international profile of Irish mathematics, to raise public awareness of mathematics and to support local mathematical research through workshops, conferences and a visitor programme
