Participants are advised to contact The Lir at outlining their requirements so that each class can be designed according to their needs. Classes can be booked individually but in most cases 3-5 sessions are advised.

These classes are not suitable for students who are considering applying to an Academy of Dramatic Art, we have a number of short courses that are tailored to students who want to pursue a career in acting.

Once you have contacted us and outlined your experience and availability, we will send you a link to book a session with the tutors.

The cost for an individual session for actors is €100
