Atlas expands into USA and moves Dublin school

August 21, 2013


Ireland-based Atlas Language School has moved into a new location in Dublin, and has also announced expansion into the USA with a new junior centre in Santa Barbara, California, from 2014.


The new home of Atlas Language School, Dublin.

The new Dublin base is in the landmark Portobello House building, overlooking the grand canal, and features 25 classrooms, a student café/restaurant, library, computer room and a student recreational area.

Director and Co-Founder of the school, Nico Dowling, said, “It has taken over a year of negotiations to secure Portobello House, so we are absolutely delighted to have finally moved into such a unique and beautiful building.”

He added, “We have been growing rapidly over the past number of years and we feel our new location will further enhance our standing in the Irish market and strengthen our position at the forefront of quality ELT providers.”

Meanwhile, with the opening of a third junior centre in Santa Barbara, Atlas Language School is also making a foray into the USA market. The new junior centre adds to the original summer school in Dublin, and a second school opened in Bristol, UK, earlier this year.

“Known as ‘The American Riviera’, our new destination is the ideal location for a summer study holiday,” said Dowling. “The pristine coastline, beautiful architecture, easy access to Los Angeles and warm weather capture what every visitor dreams to experience in California.”

The residential-only programme is located on the beach, ten minutes from the Spanish colonial downtown area and facilities include an on-site swimming pool. A full-day trip to Los Angeles and a four-day excursion to San Francisco are included within the package.
