We provide guided tours tailored to the requirements and interests of each group.
All tours for primary and second-level tours are curriculum linked.

A visit for primary level students can be used to support various aspects of the curriculum including:
  • Art, Craft and Design (investigate by looking; learn about artists; architects and designers from different periods; develop observational skills)
  • History (how people lived; the changes that took place over different periods and how people were affected by those changes; understanding local history and learning about evidence)
  • CSPE (appreciating our environment)

We provide worksheets for primary level students and these can be provided in advance of your visit here.

A visit to Derrynane House can also be used to support aspects of the Leaving Certificate History curriculum. Social and cultural history are particularly relevant.

All levels of education are invited to explore the protected natural heritage area that surrounds Derrynane House.

Please note all group tours must be booked in advance. For further information or to make a booking, contact us.
