Blackhall Place


This apartment-style housing is a 20-minute walk from Dublin Business School (DBS) and Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and a 25-minute bus ride from University College Dublin (UCD). The apartment complex is located in the heart of the city center in a section of Dublin called Smithfield. There are 3-5 students per apartment, typically in single bedroom accommodation with a shared bathroom, kitchen, common area and balcony. Smithfield has a wide array of cultural opportunities including the Lighthouse Cinema which plays art-house and documentary films, the Smithfield Farmers Market including a seasonal ice skating rink and the Dublin City Fruit, Vegetable and Flower Market—one of Victorian Dublin’s best kept secrets. The apartments are also just a stone’s throw away from Dublin’s Museum District and the largest inner-city park in Europe: the Phoenix Park.
