Welcome to the website of Saint Patrick’s College Maynooth. Those of you who are embarking upon your first visit to our seminary website you are especially welcome.

Here at Maynooth, we are fortunate to have three different institutions of learning on campus each of which contributes to a very vibrant, dynamic and enriching place of higher learning, formation and research. Pontifical University staff and students share the campus with their colleagues in the National Seminary and National University of Ireland, Maynooth [NUIM].

The college is justly proud of its long-standing tradition of commitment to high quality instruction and student service provided by a responsive faculty, formation team and administrative staff. Many of our alumni and current students alike cite close interaction with faculty members as hallmarks of their educational experience at Maynooth. The Pontifical University on foot of its ongoing professional quality assurance process is redoubling its efforts to put in place an environment of excellence for undergraduates and postgraduates in every dimension of student life and learning. Our commitment to each student is to deliver a high quality third and fourth level educational experience that is at once academically challenging and personally supportive.

The college seeks to provide its students and seminarians with a solid academic foundation, a strong spiritual base and a value-added research and recreational environment capable of generating graduates who are equipped with the requisite knowledge and leadership skills to excel in their career fields or vocational callings. Studying at Maynooth, whether for a number of years or just a semester, is truly a time of rich opportunity for intellectual, personal, spiritual and human development.

As we work and study, all of us; faculty and staff, seminarians and students, are on a journey of faith, discovery, leadership and community. Our common goal is the education and formation of leaders: for the church, our country, our communities, the professions and a myriad of different walks of life. Let us make the most of this piece of the road that we will share together!

I am looking forward to serving you and would like to thank you again for making Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth your university.

Reverend Michael Mullaney President
