The Milltown Institute of Theology and Philosophy is an institution of higher education and research, located in Dublin, Ireland. Since 1997 it has been a recognised college of the National University of Ireland, under the 1997 universities Act, the government removed the ban on the NUI awarding degrees in Theology which had stood since its foundation and its predecessor the Royal University of Ireland.

Milltown is run by the Jesuits and is located in Milltown/Ranelagh in Dublin.

Since November 1989, when it was granted designated status under the National Council for Educational Awards Act 1979, it has developed and offered civil programmes leading to Bachelor, Masters and Doctoral awards. The NCEA became HETAC om 2001.


Milltown Institute was established as a Pontifical Athenaeum with Faculties of Theology and Philosophy, by a group of religious institutes in 1968. The origins of the Institute however can be traced back to the 1880s when the Jesuits established a School of Philosophy and a School of Theology at Milltown. The School of Theology has had an unbroken history at Milltown ever since 1889, and became a Jesuit Pontifical Faculty in 1932. The School of Philosophy moved from Milltown in 1930 and became a Jesuit Pontifical Faculty in 1948, and returned to Milltown in 1966.
