Salle Dublin was founded in 2005 by Maître David Couper and Maître Fionbarr Farrell. It is the first Salle d'Armes to be established in Ireland in over fifty years.
Our mission is to take Irish fencing to another level of excellence. We emphasise individual development, personal lessons and value for money - membership includes the cost of all individual tuition - in a friendly and welcoming ambience.
All levels are welcome - from beginners to elite athletes, from dedicated international competitors to those who simply want to keep fit in an interesting and rewarding way.
“Fencing is a school of humility and develops speed, perfect control of the body, balance, beauty and strong grace. It should be recommended to everyone wanting to master their feelings and actions during their lifetime. Through this art they will think clearly and act always with style in their decisions.”
