School Programmes

As a centre of historical importance in an area of natural beauty, Ardagh has a lot to offer primary school children. We provide active, integrated learning experiences, in various areas of the curriculum, based on the collection and peaceful environment of Ardagh Heritage and Creativity Centre.

Special rates for primary school visits as follows:
  • €6 per person (groups of less than 10)

Each workshop is curriculum linked and lasts for one and a half hours. All materials are included.
