Boarding has been an integral part of Dundalk Grammar School since its foundation.  Students from Ireland and abroad have a unique opportunity to experience a wide range of cultural diversity and form friendships that will last a lifetime.  Our resident staff aim to provide students with an environment that is safe and happy.

Students come to board for a variety and combination of reasons such as their homes are too far away for a daily commute, and or they want to be away from home distractions and temptations at a time of important study.  Some parents wish their children to have some experience of living away from home prior to moving on to third level study – an important factor when you consider that nearly all Dundalk Grammar School students (minimum 96% annually) go on to study at third level.
