Our Campuses

The Conservatory’s activities take place at two main locations in south central Dublin:  Chatham Row and Rathmines Road.  We also have a superb 400-seater concert hall – the Gleeson Theatre – in the DIT building on Kevin Street.  If you would like to visit us, come along to one of our Open Days, or one of our many performance events.   

Chatham Row

Chatham Row is just 3 minutes' walk from St Stephen's Green and Grafton Street, in the heart of Dublin.  Our Chatham Row building has a well-equipped recital hall with organ, classrooms, a percussion suite and a large number of teaching and practice studios.  Much of the instrumental teaching takes place at Chatham Row.  

Rathmines Road

Our building at Rathmines Road is 25 minutes' walk south of St Stephen's Green, or a 5-minute bus ride away.  Facilities at the Rathmines Road building include a 60-seater performance space, a music technology lab equipped with Apple Mac computers, an organ room, several large classrooms and lecture rooms, as well as a canteen and student common room.  The Conservatory's library is also located at Rathmines.  Much of the academic, vocal and drama teaching takes place at Rathmines.  

Conservatory students also make use of DIT facilities all over Dublin.

In 2017, we will move to brand new, purpose-built accommodation at DIT’s Grangegorman campus in north central Dublin – our teaching and performance facilities will be among the finest in Europe.

In Grangegorman we will be co-located with disciplines such as fine art, visual art, design, languages, journalism, film and broadcasting, photography, digital media, public relations, communications, social care and event management.  In preparation for the move to our visionary new campus, we are engaging in a comprehensive redesign of our curricula, to ensure our students benefit from the exciting opportunities for trans-disciplinary study.  Our redesigned degree programmes will place renewed emphasis on excellence, reflection, confidence, leadership, social responsibility and entrepreneurialism – they will be unique and distinctive in Ireland and will place us at the forefront of arts education nationally and internationally.
