Youth Spaces

Our Youthwork programmes aims to support, empower, and strengthen young people through a wide range of programmes and activities collectively known as “Youth Spaces”. We work to meet the needs and interests of the young people in our community, on a individual and group level. We strive to help each young person on their own pathway to witness their full potential, as we believe they should have a space that is safe and non judgemental. Each youth worker adapts an approachable and positive attitude towards each young person we support through a series of programmes such as Youthwork, our Youth Cafe and Plus One Mentoring.

The YMCA Dublin Christmas Tree Sale is back in Sandymount for 2019, and this year we want to sell as many real Christmas trees as possible to make a huge difference to the young people we work with!
You will be able to buy real Christmas Trees at YMCA Sandymount (31A, Claremont Road, Sandymount, Dublin 4, D04P9T7).

Start Date: Wednesday 27th November

Opening Hours:
Monday-Friday: 9am – 8pm
Saturday & Sunday: 10am – 5pm

We have real, Irish-grown, high quality Normann Fir Christmas trees, ranging in height from 4ft to 12ft. Our trees are priced at €10 per foot, and we also sell stands for the tree for €10 each. We take cash, card or cheques at our Sandymount facility.


We cater for young people from aged 10 and up in the local community in a fun and safe environment where young people have the opportunity to engage in  a variety of activities.

Youth Cafe

We provide a drop in service for young people in the area with our quiet, safe space where young people can come in and be themselves, relax with friends or talk to someone if needed.

Plus One Mentoring

We provide a support network to young people aged 10-17 years old who are going through a period of transition in their lives, and may be in need of an extra bit of guidance and support.
