Our discipline areas include Business & Administration, Tourism, Community & Social Development, Beauty Therapy, Early Childhood Care & Education, Health & Nursing, Equine, Security and Warehousing.

The College will always take our guidance from Government and HSE recommendations. We have compiled a COVID-19 link on the College website which includes our COVID-19 Response Plan.

We will update this document as necessary, responding to the situation as it changes. Together with this plan we have included the most up-to-date information and best advice and useful videos.

Hopefully, the website will motivate you to visit the College or just give us a call. You will receive a warm welcome, be provided with an opportunity to meet and communicate with staff and discuss your options. Our College Community is renowned for its caring and supportive atmosphere.

It also highlights the qualities and supports of the College and also the diverse range of learners, which we welcome.
