Situated just 25 kilometres west of Dublin city centre, and well serviced by bus and rail routes, Maynooth is Ireland's only university town.
Irish Rail, Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann and private coach operators all offer transport links to Maynooth.
The grounds around Maynooth University are what you would expect from an old university: very beautiful planned gardens, playing fields and woodland areas. The gates of the university open onto the vibrant student town.
The Royal Canal is nearby with pedestrian and cycling paths. The university’s kayaking club make regular use of the nearby River Liffey.
Located close to the Irish and European headquarters of many multinational high tech companies, the university continues to forge strong links with industry and is well placed to cater for the growing demand for high quality graduates.
