Point Campus, Dublin – opening September 2018.
Here at Host, we recently celebrated our first birthday. And while we had a great first year, we think our second year is going to be even better. Why? Because we’re opening student accommodation in even more cities, including in Dublin, Ireland.
Dublin, is the capital of Ireland and its name derives from two Gaelic words, ‘Dubh’ and ‘linn’; meaning ‘black’ and ‘pool’ respectively. And by coincidence, one of the first things you might do when you get to Dublin is order a pint of the black stuff! Did you know, 10 million pints of Guinness are produced in Dublin every day? So, you’ll have no problems finding somewhere to indulge. But if it’s your first time, there’s no better place to taste it than at the world-famous Guinness Storehouse.
Don’t be fooled though, there’s far more to this intriguing city than just the drink. Dublin boasts the largest walled park in Europe, Phoenix Park, which is double the size of New York’s Central Park. You can take a trip back in time or admire artwork in one of the many museums and galleries. And for you romantics out there, Dublin is also the resting place of St. Valentine.
So, that’s a little look at the city, what about the accommodation?
Due for completion in 2018, construction of our new student accommodation in Dublin is well underway. Our newest and largest development, Point Campus Dublin, will consist of two buildings, with a total of 966 student beds. They’ll be a combination of en-suite bedrooms arranged in shared flats of 4-8 bedrooms. They’ll also be a limited number of individual studio apartments for those who prefer a little more privacy.
But that’s not all, the new development will also feature a variety of modern on-site facilities and social spaces. Students will be able to enjoy a gym and group fitness studio, a cinema room, games room, study rooms, outdoor courtyard areas and roof terraces.
Where is it located?
If you’re wondering where Point Campus is located, you’ll be able to find them in the up and coming Point Village area of Dublin. Right next door to the 3 Arena, an Odeon cinema and shopping centre, this area is a future hot spot of Dublin.
Just ten minutes on the Luas from O’Connell Street and the large shopping area of Henry Street, you have everything you need just a short journey away. And getting to university couldn’t be easier either. Hop on the Luas line right outside our accommodation and when you arrive at O’Connell Street, Trinity College is just a short walk away. Or if it’s a sunny day, enjoy a stroll down the Liffey. You can walk directly from our accommodation to Trinity College in just 25 minutes. Other universities and colleges in the city are also an easy Luas or bus journey away, or just a short walk to the campuses.
Point Campus in Dublin will open to students in September 2018. If you would like to be one of the first to stay with us, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

When you’re viewing a property for university, we understand the importance of asking questions and getting the feel of the space. You might feel pressure to secure student accommodation, but it pays off to be thorough when viewing show flats. We’ve put together a list of the best questions to ask when viewing student accommodation.
This year, Chinese New Year is on Saturday 10th February and it is the year of the Dragon Zodiac. The Chinese New Year date changes every year, but is always held between January 21st and February 20th, as the Chinese year follows the lunar calendar. The holiday falls on the second new moon after the winter solstice, (the winter solstice, occurs when one of the Earth's poles has its maximum tilt away from the Sun), on December 21st.
