In case you have not heard our story, here is a little insight into our history!

Let’s take a little step back in time…

Established in 1976 by Kay Galligan, the Galligan College is Ireland’s longest owner-established third level beauty college. We cover a wide range of courses in the beauty and hair industry (all of which can be viewed on the website but HERE is a good place to start.

From day 1 the college, its owners and tutors have aimed to deliver progressive, innovative professional courses. We now have a wonderful reputation for creating the next-generation of top Irish beauty and hair professionals.

The Galligan College is a family run business. The College’s Directors, Careena and Lorraine Galligan have a wealth of experience in the beauty industry. Lorraine is regularly sought out by CIDESCO to examine internationally – we are one lucky school to have her knowledge! As directors, they have worked tirelessly to ensure that our high standards in excellence in training is maintained.
