Campus Life

Going to university is more than getting a qualification. It is also an opportunity to create new friendships and possibilities.

Living in Maynooth Ireland


Maynooth is Ireland’s only university town. It is home to a vibrant community, rich in heritage and modern conveniences, with excellent transport links across Ireland. With its warm and friendly atmosphere and array of shops, businesses, restaurants and bars, it has something to offer everyone, whether you are looking for culture, nature, or adventure.

The historic town has at either end of the main street, Maynooth Castle and Carton House two former seats of the Dukes of Leinster. The University campus and town complement each other to the point where one acts as an extension of the other.

Students of St Patrick's are entitled to all the support services of Maynooth University and the Campus, while getting the attention that comes with being in a small learning community. The best of both worlds.
