The town of Maynooth is situated in north County Kildare, close to the borders of Counties Dublin and Meath. It is 15 miles/25 km. west of Dublin city centre, just off the M4, the main Dublin to Galway road.
Maynooth preserves much of its rural ambience, with easy access to peaceful countryside. At the same time, it is within easy reach of Dublin with bus and train services, and is close to the high-technology industrial parks on the western edge of the city. It is home to a vibrant local community and offers students and others abundant opportunities to enjoy a busy and varied social life.
