Based just outside the city centre, NCG Dublin opened its doors in the 1970s as Dublin Language Centre. The school has stayed in the coastal suburb of Dún Laoghaire for over 50 years. Former owner, Sadiq Basha, has said:

"We took over the school six years ago, and saw strong growth pre-COVID … student numbers are the highest they have ever been. I believe the acquisition by GBS English Path will provide great impetus for the school to continue to grow and I look forward to seeing where they will take the school in the future."

Dublin is the only NCG school involved in the merger; other schools in Manchester and Liverpool have not been acquired by English Path.
