"If you want to become a great bartender then start here. I experienced the EBS Dublin in October 2018 and it was an incredible time. It is so much more than just learning how to bartend. The people I met, the things I’ve seen and did during the course made my experience in Dublin great and also prepared me for working behind bar. The instructors are brilliant and really motivate and support you to study. Even the school is just an amazing place which became like my home in Dublin. I loved my time at the EBS Dublin and I recommend the course to everyone who is interested in bartending! Its just so much fun and I’m sure it will be an amazing experience in your life"

Schirin Lüth, October Course 2018

"I attended the Dublin Bar Academy in the beginning of the year. The reason being to gain some more knowledge about spirits and cocktail skills since I am working in the Hospitality industry. I loved the course. Calum and Richard were excellent instructor. They have an amazing knowledge and know exactly how to teach and not to make it boring. The weeks flew by in no time. Because of the Course I got a job in a cocktail bar. The instructors are more than happy to help you and support you I would recommend it to everyone who is interested to work in the hospitality industry"

Maria Vogt, February Course 2018

"I did my European Bartender School 4 weeks course in Dublin during April 2018, I was as confused as anyone would be while deciding whether to do it?, Will it help?, What if I won't be able to do it!? So many other questions in my head. Trust me that it was worth it. Now a year later I work in one of the best Cocktail Bars in Dublin. It wouldn't have been possible without the amazing instructors who helped me all along and after a year of my course, I still meet them outside and I still consider them as my Family. I had the experience of my life at Dublin EBS School!"
