Graduation at UCD is an opportunity to celebrate in a lovely setting. The campus is worth a visit for anyone who is interested in education. The animal hospital is particularly impressive.

My daughter was staying at the Uni during her exchange from ANU. It's a big university, the accommodation is excellent, lots of space and in a great area with regular bus services to the city and the airport. There is even a supermarket on campus.

Stayed on campus for a conference. Very comfortable for budget accommodation. Shop on site means you can self cater. Lovely walk round campus too and very easy and cheap bus trip into the heart of Dublin. Connections to airport. Very frequent and easy.

I know my daughter needs to cook her own meals. I think it depends which dorm/plan the student chose.
