The Alliance Française Dublin

The award-winning Alliance Française Dublin (AFD) has over 50 years experience in teaching French and belongs to a worldwide network, the biggest in the world, established since 1883 to promote French language and culture in 133 countries. The AFD is a Registered Irish Charity ideally located in the heart of the city centre in a famous listed building overlooking Trinity College.

With over 3500 students and 6500 enrolments a year, the AFD has the third biggest Language Centre in Europe. Group, one-to-one and intensive tuition are available throughout the year for professionals and individuals from the age of 12 months. The AFD employs and trains native French teachers only, all most qualified and experienced professionals in their field. The AFD offers official and internationally recognised examinations and diplomas that are exclusive to the Alliance Française network.

The AFD is not just a school but a cultural centre as well, and provides a genuine French experience in addition to tuition. Learning with them means free Alliance Française Membership that includes borrowing rights in their French multimedia library, the revolutionary online platform Culturethèque featuring over 150,000 titles in French, as well as preferential access to the 100+ cultural events they organise each year, including exhibitions, screenings, tastings, talks, concerts, plays, book launches, festivals, markets and fairs.

The AFD also offers two public spaces: the new refurbished French Library, a multiform space that can transform into conference/screening venue with state-of-the-art audio and video systems, and the French Café-Restaurant La Cocotte that doubles as an exhibition space for an ever-changing array of interesting contemporary artworks, and is the perfect place for a French lunch or a quick stop while shopping or exploring the nearby museums.
