Junior Summer Centre – Blackrock College

Blackrock is a suburb of Dublin. It is a largely residential area located 7 km south of the city centre. A fashionable seaside resort in the eighteenth century, the town gets its name from the black rocks that lies off-shore which once marked the city limits. An ancient Celtic cross still stands in the main street.
Blackrock College, including Willow Park, is a large educational complex. It has extensive wooded parklands and playing fields of some 64 acres, with a magnificent view of Dublin Bay. The college is located beside Booterstown DART station and the city centre is only a 10 minute train journey or a 25 minute bus ride away.
