Welcome to Rockwell College where we offer residential accommodation for boys and girls on a 7day and 5 day basis. Girls are catered for through placements in locally-based host families while up to 150 boys board on-site in Shanahan Hall.
Pupils from all over Ireland and from around the world choose Rockwell College for their second-level education. Our pupils travel from the U.K., Germany, Spain, Luxemburg, France, Belgium, Russia, U.S., Bahrain, Japan and Hong Kong. This diversity provides a unique environment for all pupils attending the College and is part of the College ethos of inclusivity.
As a boarder at Rockwell College, you will experience a well-structured environment that promotes academic and social development in the Spiritan tradition. Our boarding facilities are spacious and modern, providing a comfortable and high quality living space .Pupils develop both their independence and their sense of responsibility within the care and protection of the College and its staff.
