NUI Maynooth

NUI MaynoothNUI Maynooth is a dynamic and innovative university of some 5,500 students from every county in Ireland as well as an increasing number of international students. Situated only 25km west of Dublin (half an hour by car and fed by a regular public transport network!), it is located in Ireland’s only university town, Maynooth, which combines the historical legacy of its medieval origins with a present day location on the fringes of Dublin.

We believe this to be the perfect location for anyone looking to “go back to school”… Salsa school that is! This setting offers us a combination of excellent dance space for both classes and evening events, eloquent dining facilities, comfortable accommodation, all within a picturesque and tranquil campus.

Available options when booking your ticket include accommodation in self catering apartments on campus and meals served in Pugin Hall. Each apartment has five bedrooms each with its own en-suite bathroom. There are a very limited number of twin rooms available which also have en-suite bathrooms so please contact us early and make a note when booking if you are looking for a twin room.
