The Lodge at Burren College of Art (BCA) offers you a comfortable setting while studying art in County Clare. Located minutes walk from campus, the residence is set on extensive grounds just outside Ballyvaughan Village. You will live with fellow International students attending the BCA and while the number of students in each area of the Lodge may vary, you should anticipate sharing a bedroom and bathroom facilities. Single rooms are available upon request, but they are rare. The communal areas within the Lodge are co-ed, however your individual roommate(s) will be the same gender.
