Interior Design Courses in Dublin.

Have you or someone you know taken an interior design course at one of the local colleges? I was looking into the course at Griffith College, and a colleague of mine has a sister that did a course at Dun Laoghaire Institute, but I'd really like to personally hear from people who have graduated or are currently enrolled. Are the lecturers good? What's the campus like? etc. etc. You can leave a comment or email me at Shawna@aaaphotos.org

i am studying the Limperts home course, which allows me to work as well as study. Its a good course and seems to be supported by interior designers. Discipline is the hardest part of time management

Yeah, I don't think I'd do very well with those home courses. I work better in a classroom setting, but thanks for the suggestion :-)

Dublin Institute of Design do a Rhodec evening course which gets you the 'Associate Diploma in Int. Design' or there is also the full time diploma course. Check it out here:

Hi Shawna !

Welcome to the Dublin Design Blogging World, I see you have been here for a couple of months but i have only discovered you today thanks to the lovely HomeBug ! I am looking for a course to do as well, i enquired about the one in Griffith but seems very long ( 3 years ) i just wanted to do a year course, so i called in the Dublin Institute of Design about the course that Jane mentioned in the comment above but to be honest the crowd there was not very helpful, they took my number and told me they were going to call me back with more info but they never did, so this isn't really a good sign..I will keep looking and if you find something good please pop over to Design Undercover and let me know ! Nice blog by the way :) nice to see the Design blogging community is growing !

I wouldnt hold your breath for the Dublin Institute of Design course. I did it a few years ago. All I will say is - Im sure there are better courses out there!

Thanks for all the comments and advice. I'll be sure to keep all that in mind. ;-)

I did the course in Griffith a couple of years ago and I found it very good. It's tough going when you are holding down a job as well but it's worth it if it's what you want to do. I asked around before I did my course and was told that Griffith or DIT were considered the best. Hope this is of some help.
p.s best of luck with the blog :)
