Dunaras is a secure gated community purpose built for students and, by providing quality residential accommodation our aim is to enhance the life of the student during his or her time at the National University of Ireland, Galway. The staff of Dunaras Residential Accommodation will endeavour to maintain the highest standards and with the cooperation of the residents, a safe and pleasant living environment will be maintained.



Making Friends at Dunaras


Dunaras is a mecca for students from around the globe and almost every county in Ireland. This year we played host to students from New Zealand, The Carribean, The US, Canada, and several European countries including Ireland.
Each study group have their own block and all are arranged around a central courtyard except for the Post Graduate block which is seperate. Thus we have the 1st year block, the post first year block, and the International block, all with close access to their own group and yet all grouped around the one courtyard, and with access to a single reception, laundry and bus service. With capacity for 409 students we have given alot of thought to allocating our students so that they make friends easily.

Life at Dunaras is relaxed, the services are excellent and the company is good!
