Welcome to Lucan Toastmasters, the club where you can improve your public speaking skills. We are over 30 years in existence.  Since we launched  way back in 1983 Lucan Toastmasters has helped hundreds of people improve what is considered to be the greatest fear – speaking to a crowd.

The best way to conquer that fear is to practice and practice and as a famous book title says ‘Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway’.

The Lucan branch of Toastmaster is one of the biggest in the country and some of the members have won speech contests both here and abroad.

People join the club for many reasons – to practice for a wedding speech, to improve their career prospects, to be more confident promoting their own business, or just for personal development. Apart from that, we have a great social group and a chance to start new friendships.

We meet every second Thursday at 8pm in the Springfield Hotel, close to Leixlip.
