Lafayette Photography are the official graduation photographers of Dublin Business School. It is advisable to pre-book your photography online on the Lafayette Photography website, through the “Graduation Photography” section.

Online bookings will close at midday the day before your graduation day. Lafayette is open 2 hours prior to your ceremony and to avoid queues you can have your photograph taken beforehand. You do not need your certificate for your photograph, as a prop will be provided.

Update 15th July
Tickets are now on sale for the Thursday ceremony with Friday's to follow next week. Please check your own email account (including spam folder) over the coming days.
As spaces are limited, we will be restricted to 2 guests per graduate. Please don't be offended if we can't accommodate requests for extra tickets. Many graduates have very special people in their lives they'd want at the ceremony, but we can't accommodate everyone.
