Founded by Mary Beth Taylor, TCRG (Registered Teacher, CLRG), Irish Dance Dublin welcomes adult learners of all ages and skill levels. We teach both Irish dancing and sean-nós (‘old style’) dancing, with classes for Beginner and Intermediate levels.

Dancing is a fantastic way to improve your fitness, increase your flexibility, challenge your memory, and meet new people. Whether you are returning to a hobby you enjoyed in the past, or you want to learn something new, we have a class for you.
