Dublin Bridge Classes and New2Bridge.com are dedicated to teaching people how to play Bridge effectively, in a fun and friendly manner.

The site is run by myself, Gareth Simpson, for my students to use materials as discussed in various courses that I organise.

I run public courses at The Civil Service Bridge Club in Heytesbury Road, Dublin, and can also accommodate bespoke private tuition at my home in Templogue. Call me on 089 496 0471 for updates.

Non Students are welcome to use the materials as they think fit; if circulated further then I retain the copyright and just ask for a mention here and there.


We all have to start somewhere. So this is where my novices will begin.

The menu for this page contains the materials for the first 10 Lessons  (hover over the menu or click the drop down to obtain the sub menus).

Only jump one or two Lessons in advance …. Please


Improvers and Advancers will find their material here. After playing “basic” ACOL for a year or so it’s time to stretch the legs a bit and move onto “Modern” ACOL – Transfers , Weak Twos , Benjis , Slam Bidding. 

Then onto the wonderful world of Landy , Lebonsols, and Leaping Michaels ………..


I organise Bridge Lessons and teach Basic ACOL Bridge to beginners , Modern ACOL to improvers and anything that “lets the light get in” to everyone else.
