Local schools:

If you are planning to relocate to Dublin, one of your big concerns might be the schooling of your children. It would be impossible to provide a comprehensive list of all schools in the areas surrounding the campus of UCD.  

We therefore refer you to the website of the Department of Education & Science, where a full listing of all schools in the country, both primary and secondary, is available. Search the Education Provider Locator by county and/or type of school.
