Venue Information - The Alliance Francaise Dublin

The longstanding friendship between France and Ireland is based in no small measure on the Irish love of the French language and culture. While the majority of French Clubs outside France limited themselves to small cultural events, the Dublin Centre had teaching as its key activity immediately after the war. French classes for adults were held in the premises at 18 Herbert Street, then called, the ”Centre Culturel Français”. In 1960, the centre officially became the Alliance Française de Dublin with the arrival of a Délégué Général, seconded by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
