Welcome to Galway Barista School

Established in 2017, the Galway Barista School is an Independent School set up to facilitate Coffee Lovers at all levels.

We currently run One Day Barista Basics and Barista Workshops, suitable for students looking to get a Job in the industry, for people already working in a Cafe who would like to upgrade their skills or for people who just have a keen interest in coffee and want to learn more & have a fun day immersed in the World of Coffee. We also run Barista Intermediate & Latte Art for those looking to further their barista skills.

We are also a member of the SCA (Specialty Coffee Association) and run SCA Introduction to Coffee and Barista Foundation and Barista Intermediate Courses. These courses are internationally recognised and students are awarded points towards the SCA Coffee Skills Diploma program.

Ideally located in the centre of the West of Ireland, we are approximately an hour from Westport, Castlebar, Ballina, Sligo, Leitrim, Roscommon, Athlone, Limerick & Ennis.

If you’re a coffee lover then we’re not too far away.


I attended a one day barista training workshop here and was blown away, it surpassed all of my expectations. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. The course was perfectly thought out and delivered. It was more intensive than I had anticipated, we were given lots of time working the machine and steaming/texturing milk. The small class size allows for the trainer to give lots of attention to each student, really getting the best out of everyone. The course was, in a word, flawless.

Fantastic direction given with true expertise from the field, this course will give you a sense of direction and a foundation in barista work that would otherwise require years of trial and error.

I would like to recommend this workshop, it's absolutely great, i arrived there without knowledge about coffee, about it history or flavors and now not just know about the culture of coffee even i want to continue learning it and improving my new skill.
