Our Locations

The Gaiety School of Acting’s Headquarters is based on Essex Street West in Temple Bar. This is the home of our Full-time Actor Training course, Part-time adult courses and the extensive Young Gaiety course. The Gaiety School also offers a Study Abroad Programme, in addition to extensive corporate training.

The school is both nationally and internationally recognised as the premier training facility for actors both in Dublin and Ireland. Past pupils that have come from our school of acting include Colin Farrell, Olivia Wilde, Colin O’ Donoghue and Aidan Turner.


The Gaiety School of Acting is located in the heart of Dublin’s cultural quarter in Temple Bar. Classes take place in our modern studios, ideal for acting and dance classes.
