About Maynooth

Being a university town, Maynooth offers international students  a perfect mix of rural Ireland and the excitement of urban living. As a major market hub, it houses the European and international headquarters of many multinational companies such as Intel, Hewlett Packard, Facebook, Microsoft, and Google. The town is always buzzing with people as it is full of shops and business, restaurants and bars, pubs and clubs. For adventure seekers, Maynooth has plenty of it, namely Donadea Forest. The forest is home to many historical features such as the remains of a castle, walled gardens, a church, a tower, an ice house, and a boathouse, as well as a 2.3-hectare lake. With its low crime rate, it is one of the safest and pleasant places to live, work and study in.
