North Wales

A school trip to North Wales offers pupils a wonderful opportunity to experience a very different culture on their doorstep. Essentially a rural experience, where a short drive takes you from coast to upland. The selection of mines, power stations and narrow gauge railways in North Wales gives any tour a unique character. From trips down slate, copper or gold mines to journeys to the top of mountains by train, have all left a lasting impression on school children.


The historic city of Edinburgh and its surrounding countryside offers an immense variety of attractions and as such Edinburgh is one of, if not the most, visited destination for school groups.

Glasgow offers a much cheaper option to staying in Edinburgh and is only an hour's drive away. A full day in Edinburgh can include the castle and zoo, home to the UK's only giant pandas, plus many more alternatives. In Glasgow there is the marvellous Science Centre, with its hands on Science Mall and IMAX Theatre, and the excitement of a stadium tour at Celtic Park, Ibrox or Hampden Park. Just a short drive away is the Time Capsule and Scotland's Theme Park, M&D's.


From the GAA Museum and Skyline at Croke Park to Kilmainham Gaol to the state apartments of the Viceregal Court at Dublin Castle and, further back, at the Natural History Museum, any visit to Dublin is always an education!
