'Which is more musical, a truck passing by a factory or a truck passing by a music school?'
– John Cage
Waltons New School of Music is located in Dublin city centre, above the Waltons Music shop located at 69 South Great George’s Street, Dublin 2. There is a separate door to the left of the shop, and visitors should come up the stairs and check in at the office.
There is both on-street parking and several car parks in our immediate vicinity. We also have an arrangement with Park Rite car parks that students of the school (as well as parents) can avail of special student discount rates of €2 per hour or €10 per day at any of their Dublin car parks (the closest is on Drury Street). To avail of these discounts, simply drop by the school office with your parking ticket, which we will stamp for you, and show it to the car park attendant when you leave.
Because of our central location, it is also very convenient to take public transport. The 16, 16A, 19, 19A, 65, 65B, 83 and 122 buses stop nearby. The nearest Luas stops are St. Stephen's Green (south side) and Jervis Street (north side). The nearest DART stations are Pearse Street and Tara Street.
There is a Dublin Bikes station on Exchequer Street, just around the corner from the New School.
Lessons and courses take place at the New School itself, as well as at the Centre of English Studies building, 31 Dame Street. See the printable facilities map (pdf format) for details.
The New School also offers city-centre practice and rehearsal facilities, and our largest classroom is also available as an intimate concert, recital or workshop venue (audience capacity: 45).
