Located in the heart of the business district in central Dublin, Giraffe NCI is located at the rear side of the National College of Ireland in the IFSC. It is just minutes from the city centre and has excellent transport facilities with the Luas on our doorstep. Our bright and airy centre has 6 spacious rooms, all colourfully decorated and arranged to offer each child the chance to explore and investigate their environment.

There are lots of opportunities to enjoy messy play and art activities, supporting the children’s natural curiosity and love of learning. We offer a broad curriculum based on Aistear and Siolta frameworks encouraging children to learn the skills that they need to develop to become confident, happy learners.

We care for children aged 12 months up to 5 years old and are open all year round, Monday to Friday except for public holidays. All our staff are Garda vetted, are fully qualified and attend regular training. Why not call us (01) 245 0939 and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Our People


Noreen our experienced centre manager joined the Giraffe trainee manager programme in 2022 in Giraffe Blanchardstown. Her vast experience, passion and knowledge could be seen and allowed her to quickly move towards managing her own centre. Childcare has always being my passion, I find working with children very rewarding especially when you see them grow from babies to wobblers, toddlers, and pre-schoolers in a very warm secure environment. I love to give advice to the staff,  imparting my knowledge and experience to help them learn. We aim to provide the children at NCI the highest level of care and support. To help them reach their full potential.
