Maynooth College

Maynooth College may mean either of two institutions in Maynooth, Ireland:

* St Patrick's College, Maynooth
* National University of Ireland, Maynooth

Generally Maynooth College refers to "St Patrick's College, Maynooth". Saint Patrick's College is the National Seminary and Pontifical University. Until 1997 "St Patrick's College, Maynooth" was also a constituent college of the National University of Ireland, but in that year certain faculties of the college were reconstituted as the "National University of Ireland, Maynooth".
