Clare Island offers school tours a memorable day out that the adults will enjoy every bit as much as the kids. For many children, the ferry experience alone will make the day super-exciting. But it won’t stop there, as when you arrive on the island we’ll ensure your pupils are kept active and happy for the whole day. You can relax knowing that they are in safe hands, as our highly qualified instructors will help them to stretch their confidence, without pushing them beyond their capabilities.
If you wish to have an overnight tour, we cater for that option too, but the most popular choice for primary school tours is a single day package, which starts at just €32* per child. There is no charge for teachers and other supervising adults, who are welcome to join in the activities, or relax and enjoy the scenery.
Either way, we’ll take good care of your students and send them back on the ferry tired but happy.
For activities, choose between archery or a beach challenge in the morning. After lunch, you could opt for snorkelling, a guided hike or an adventure obstacle course, which can be either land or water-based. (A second activity increases the cost per child by €5.)
