Waltons New School of Music

‘Which is more musical, a truck passing by a factory or a truck passing by a music school?’
– John Cage

The New School is located in Dublin city centre, at 69 South Great George’s Street, Dublin 2. Our entrance is opposite the George’s Street Arcade and between the Designist and Søstrene Grene shops. If you are visiting the school, please come up the stairs and check in at the school office on the first floor.

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.
