The School of Irish Archaeology

The School of Irish Archaeology is the choice of activity for the curious child. Established in 2011, we have been introducing children to Ireland's rich culture and heritage by offering a great mix of activities to local communities nationwide. So whether you want to come to a heritage event, an educational workshop, a week-long camp, or a family fun day, the School of Irish Archaeology is the choice for your adventurous family.

As the first-ever Archaeology School for children in Ireland, we take pride in our approach in delivering fascinating and engaging workshops to both primary and secondary schools. We now offer specialised adult education including guided cultural tours as part of our service to small/large interest groups and individuals. We bring our workshops to local schools, county museums, libraries and community centres to introduce the wider community to the genesis of Irish culture.

Our education partners understand the value that the School of Irish Archaeology brings to their pupils, and the positive and long-term impact that this experience offers.
