Welcome to Blackrock College
Blackrock College, set in 56 acres of rolling parkland on the broad sweep of Dublin Bay, lies four miles from the city centre.
Founded by the Holy Ghost Fathers in 1860, Blackrock is one of the Order’s five schools in Ireland and is run by the Congregation in close co-operation with a dedicated group of lay personnel.
For over 150 years, the spirit of Fides Et Robur – Faith And Fortitude – and the importance of an education in the Catholic Spiritan tradition have been at the heart of Blackrock College life.
This long and proud tradition continues to this day and is practised in a modern, state-of-the-art educational environment, amid a caring and nurturing atmosphere which strives to ensure that every boy reaches his full potential.
In this way, we prepare our students to be the best that they can be when they leave Blackrock, instilling in them a strong sense of justice, a desire for a more caring and compassionate society, independence of mind and respect for the dignity of all.
