Pontifical Irish College Rome – Past, Present and Future

A tour through the history of the College which dates back to 1628 along with an overview of the formation programme that the seminarians follow.

Irish College Rome

Founded in 1628, this is the last of the many Irish Colleges that were once scattered over Europe when it was not possible to educate priests in Ireland. Today the College is home to 60 students, with half coming from Ireland and the others representing many different nations.

The College also organises different events for the Irish and for the wider international community in Rome.  Conferences and courses are hosted during the Summer months on different aspects of religion, safeguarding, ongoing faith formation and culture.
