Principal's Welcome

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

St Joseph’s School is located off Tivoli Road in Dún Laoghaire. There is direct access to the school from Cualanor.

We are an inclusive school at our core and children from many different nationalities are enrolled with us. There is a positive friendly atmosphere in our school. We are a rapidly growing school with 350 pupils currently enrolled.

St Joseph’s is a catholic school under the patronage of the Archbishop of Dublin. However, children from all faiths, and none, are welcomed in our school.

We are extremely fortunate to have a vibrant, hardworking staff in St Joseph’s; teachers, SNAs and ancillary staff, who always do their best for the school and for the children who attend it.

If you cannot find the information that you are looking for here please contact the school office by email (office@dunlaoghairens.ie) or by phone (01 280 3504).
