CBS Eblana is the name by which a former Christian Brothers School (CBS) at Eblana Avenue is commonly known. The school was located in Dun Laoghaire, Dublin in Ireland. It was a second level and primary school located from 1856 until 1992. It closed due to lack of pupils most likely caused by a population shift to the outlying area of Monkstown, Loughlinstown, Shankill, etc.
The school operated as the sole Christian Brothers school in Dun Laoghaire until 1951 when the school was split into two. The secondary section was broken off, with a new secondary department opened at Eblana in 1954, the public and free CBS Eblana. Meanwhile the Brothers bought the fee paying collegiate C.B.C. Monkstown grounds at Monkstown Park, Gables' Hill in Monkstown. Since the mid 1990s, the CBS grounds have been used as a youth hostel.
