Liberties College has been at the heart of learning for over 50 years. The College has two sites in the Liberties; the Iveagh Trust building in Bull Alley, across from St Patrick’s Cathedral, known locally as ‘The Bayno’, and a second site in Mark’s Alley West, off Francis Street.
‘The Bayno’ building was built in 1915 with funds from the Guinness family as a play centre for local children.
“Our diverse range of courses meet the needs of students and employers and are focused on emerging employment and higher education opportunities”
In the 1970’s it was converted to a vocational school and became Liberties College in 1996. Having such a long tradition in education, we are well placed to respond to the rapidly changing developments in education and the workplace and to meet the needs of students.
We pride ourselves on our links to employers and their feedback informs the structure and delivery of all courses.
Education for Progression
We offer a broad range of practical courses in the areas of Arts, Media and Performance; Healthcare; Childcare Studies; Social Studies; Tourism, Business and Continuing Education.
With a QQI Level 5 or Level 6 qualification, our students greatly improve their job prospects or progress to a third level qualification. In addition we have students returning to education or upskilling as part of a career change.
We are also currently engaging with Solas on the Skills To Advance initiative, and Pre-Apprenticeship Programmes.
These different student types create a College with a mix of perspectives and experience.
Our progression rate to work, study and employment is something we value and has been the cornerstone of our reputation as a successful college in the city.
Liberties College’s central location is accessible to Luas, Dart and Dublin Bus commuters and is close to many of Dublin’s cultural attractions which are often incorporated in the student experience at the College.
