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 the Casino can also be used to support aspects of the Leaving Certificate History curriculum.
Social and cultural history, and Leaving Certificate Art (design and craft work) are particularly relevant. Georgian architecture in Ireland, and specifically the Casino, comes up consistently on the Leaving Certificate art history paper.
We provide occasional art and craft workshops for children during school holidays and during Heritage Week. Check here or on our Facebook page for details. We are also happy to assist students who are carrying out research on local history, art and architecture.
Check out a creative response exhibition we hosted with Maryfield College here, as an example of educational activities that we carry out with local schools.
Please note all group tours must be booked in advance.
