Clay in Dublin?

Clay in Dublin: In a pretty massive change of directions, Slothrop and I will be moving to Dublin this fall for 9 months. He'll be busy doing his Fulbrighty stuff, and I'll be busy doing, well, whatever I want. What I want is to have access to some kind of ceramic studio.

We're both artists, but frankly, clay has a lot more accessories than painting. It's also dirtier, and needs lots of space. He can probably work wherever we live, but I'm going to need access to a ceramics studio.
I've done an internet search, and nothing seems to be popping up, other than 'paint your own' shops. From my other international travel experiences, I know that most communities have ceramic studios that are open to the public for a fee. . .
Does anyone know of communal spaces in Dublin, or schools that might be willing to work out a deal? I have an advanced degree, and plenty of teaching cred if that makes a difference. I'm not looking for anyone to fund me, I just want a place where I could rent/trade space to work and a kiln to fire in. If there are any filterites working in clay in Dublin, your expertise is greatly appreciated!
