We deliver progressive, innovative professional hair and beauty courses, for all levels, with a reputation for creating the next generation of top Irish beauty professionals.
Who We Are
The Galligan Beauty College is a family run business, originally set up by Kay Galligan. The college’s directors, Careena and Lorraine Galligan have a wealth of experience in the beauty industry, and Lorraine is regularly sought out by CIDESCO to examine internationally. As directors, they have worked tirelessly to ensure that their high standards of excellence in training is maintained.
Right in the centre of Dublin city, Galligan College has been located on Grafton Street for the last forty years. Over 7000 Beauty Therapists, Hairdressers, Makeup Artists and Advanced Skin Therapists have walked through our doors and graduated with higher-than-average marks. We care about each and every students needs on an individual basis, so that everyone who graduates is leaving with a qualification they know will help them reach their goals.
