Welcome to Clongowes Wood College SJ

Clongowes Wood College is a leading boarding school set in beautiful surroundings, thirty kilometers from Dublin in the heart of the Co. Kildare countryside. A Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, Clongowes strives to support students in their growth towards a greater understanding and awareness of their faith and the part that this plays in their lives. We are a home from home for 450 boys from all over Ireland and abroad.

Since 1814, Clongowes graduates have become leaders in the areas of business, sport, politics and the arts. Our warm and happy school puts the care and nurturing of each individual student at the heart of everything we do.

Clongowes boarding school is a special place that provides an all-round education in a dynamic living and learning community. Our facilities are exemplary with every opportunity given to each student to develop, grow and learn in order to fulfil his potential.
