Educational Visits for Schools

To facilitate as many schools as possible our group booking scheme gives priority to class visits during the academic year.

Teachers should read the following information before requesting an educational visit.

  • Access to Kilmainham Gaol is by guided tour only.
  • The maximum number per tour is 35 including at least two supervising teachers/adults.
  • Due to the high demand for educational visits, we can offer schools a maximum of up to two educational visits per academic year (maximum 66 children and 4 teachers/adults). This is subject to availability. When possible, we will facilitate the two visits on the same day and at the same time.
  • We are unable to facilitate multiple class visits from the same school.
  • School bookings cannot be made using the online booking facility. Schools should email the site directly to request a visit:  kilmainhamgaol@opw.ie
  • Organisers/teachers should familiarise themselves with the Scheme’s terms and conditions and  the Child Safeguarding Policy  http://www.heritageireland.ie/en/info/freeeducationalvisitsforschoolsscheme/
