Welcome to YMCA Dublin

YMCA Dublin is a community-based charity operating as a social enterprise, providing services for children, young people and families. We are the second oldest YMCA in the world and 2024 will see YMCA Dublin’s 175th Birthday.

Built on a social enterprise model, all income we generate goes directly back into funding our local community projects and initiatives: Alternative Suspension, CE Scheme, Childcare, Fitness, PlusOne Mentoring, Réidh and Youth Work.

Since 1849 our approach has been to work through mind, body and spirit. We work in and with communities to support individuals, children and young people to develop the skills, experiences, relationships and behaviours for healthy, confident and successful futures.

Our vision is that we believe everyone should have the opportunity to belong to healthy, confident, secure and connected communities. Today, our staff and trustees are working towards an ambitious 5-year plan of sustained and quality growth as outlined in our Strategic Plan.

About Us

We are a community-based charity operating as a social enterprise. All income we generate goes directly back into funding our local community projects and initiatives. This year we celebrate our 170th birthday.

Youth Spaces

Our Youth Spaces programmes include Youth Work and Plus-One Mentoring programme, which all strengthen the local community by getting young people and their families involved in a range of activities.

Childcare

We offer quality and affordable childcare with full and part time care for children from 3 months through to 6 years old and after-school care for children who attend school in the local area.

Community

We engage and support the local community with our Community Hub space, through Community Employment schemes for those are long-term unemployed, social housing for those experiencing homelessness and Breathe, a safe space where you can be yourself.

Fitness

We have everything you need in our gyms to get fit and healthy. Our facilities for hire include dance studios, an indoor sports hall and a range of outdoor Astro pitches. All profits from our fitness social enterprises go towards funding our work with vulnerable young people in Dublin’s inner city.
