Centre of English Studies (CES) was founded in 1979 by our Chairperson, Rosemary Quinn. One of the first English language schools in Ireland, CES has grown from strength to strength over the last 30 years.
CES has grown from having 8 year round classrooms on 31 Dame Street in 1991 to 25 classrooms in the very heart of the city in 2010!
In 2007 CES was voted 'Star English Language School' in Europe with 4 or less centres by the Language Travel Magazine. CES is the only school in Dublin to have ever been given or even nominated for this award. CES was also nominated for these awards in 2008, 2009 and 2010!
