Self-Catering: Belfield Campus, University College Dublin

UCD Belfield Accommodation

These modern, purpose-built 4-Bed and 6-Bed apartments are the preferred option for those who want the freedom of self-catering. The apartments are situated in an attractive parkland setting and thus plenty of freedom for football, games etc when not sailing. Car parking is free. The standard apartment contains 4 single bedrooms, 2 shower rooms, a kitchen, and a living room. There are also a limited number of 6-bedroom apartments, also with kitchen and living room. Bedlinen is provided, but not towels. There is a convenience store on-site, and some cafes and restaurants offering breakfast, lunch and dinner. Packed lunches can be ordered from the Catering Department in advance. Perhaps most importantly, there is a launderette with large commercial washers and driers for all that wet sailing gear! We anticipate screening a movie in the Relaxation Area each evening, at no charge. For further details about the facilities and catering options available, please click CATERING SERVICE OPTIONS.
