Clongowes Wood College SJ is a renowned boarding school for boys in Ireland.  The school admits boys from aged 12 for a 6 year cycle.

Set in beautiful surroundings, Clongowes  is located in the countryside, just 40 minutes from Dublin’s international airport.

Home to 450 students, predominantly from Ireland but with representation from c. 20 other countries, the school has a balanced mix of Irish and international students.

Known throughout the world for its quality education, the Irish education system is broad and balanced.  The academic programme at Clongowes seeks to offer opportunities for boys to achieve to their fullest potential.  Our graduates go on to study in top Irish, UK and international universities.

As a full boarding community, pastoral care is at the heart of all we do.  The boarding team act in loco parentis, in the place of the parent, providing guidance, support and friendship.  We believe that a boarding school should emulate the very best of family values.

We provide our students rich and diverse opportunities for co-curricular development.  We firmly believe that, in our boarding school, learning extends outside the classroom into the co-curricular programmes where our students learn how to be leaders and mentors for our younger students – skills which provide them with a solid foundation for the world beyond school.  The facilities for sport and co-curricular opportunities are world class.
