Twin English Centre Dublin

Twin have crossed the Irish sea to form our new English Centre in Ireland’s capital, Dublin. Twin English Centre Dublin (formerly Alpha College of English) is just a 2-min walk to the famous Dublin Spire. Our range of professional and general English courses makes our school an ideal place for students who want to improve their English.


Twin English Centre Dublin (formerly Alpha College of English) was founded in 1989 as an executive training centre to provide high level management and technical courses in English to non native-English speakers. Since then we have expanded our course offerings to include General English courses with a focus on Business and Specialised Programmes.

Over the last 30 years we have stayed true to the founding principle of offering the highest quality standards to our students from around the world. Last year we welcomed 52 different nationalities to Dublin and we always try to ensure the best possible nationality mix in all our classes.

We are fully recognised by the Irish department of Education. We are also members of two of the most prestigious quality marks in the International Language Travel industry – EAQUALS and IALC.

Homestay accommodation - TECD

Homestay 16 - 99 years old

Important: Accommodation availability is subject to change without notice and it is out of Worddy's ability to know its availability on real time. Only the school can confirm once a booking has been received.

Accommodation is an important part of a student’s transition to their new life in Ireland. Homestay accommodation is great for students as it allows them to become part of the host's environment, practising their English at home, while learning more about the local culture. Our hosts are interviewed and carefully selected for the safe and welcoming environment that they offer.
Hosts are usually within 40 minutes travel time from school on foot or by public transport.
Please note that some homestays are provided by trusted local organisers. 

Homestays for under 18s

  • Students aged 17 and under can expect to share a room with another student
  • The hosts treat the student like a member of the family, eating together and sharing the common living areas of the house together.
  • Accommodation is generally full-board (Please note students on an adult programme that are aged 16-17 may book half-board with parental consent.)
  • The maximum number of students in the house is 4
  • The house is clean and comfortable with adequate heating and lighting.
  • A comfortable bed and study facilities are provided, with sufficient hanging and drawer space for your clothes
