Rathdown School

Boarding Houses

Our on-site boarding houses offer comfortable and well-appointed accommodation with common rooms.

Kitchens and dining areas as well as access to computer facilities, wi-fi and phones.  

Younger girls share dormitories while Fifth and Sixth Year students may enjoy their own study bedrooms. Both boarding houses are situated on the school campus.

Hillcourt House

Hillcourt House is an impressive 19th Century property which has been totally refurbished to provide comfortable boarding rooms for our junior boarders, from P6 to Transition Year.

The spacious dormitories each accommodate between two to seven girls.

There are also two large recreational common rooms for use after school or during break times. The students have access to a small kitchenette where they can make hot drinks and store food.

The boarders have access to a bank of Mac computers so that they can Skype their parents and do any project work that is due for school. Hillcourt House has a cosy sitting room with a TV where the students can relax and socialise together.

Innismore House

5th and 6th Year boarders are accommodated in Innismore House. 

A modern, purpose-built property offering each pupil her own study/bedroom to encourage self-discipline and self-reliance and to further develop the academic and social skills required for their move from secondary school to third level education.

Innismore House includes a television lounge and kitchen for use by the senior boarders, enhancing the opportunity for sociability and responsibility.

Both Houses have laptop and wireless connections, with scheduled usage times.
