Field trips and walking tours provide an exciting opportunity for students to understand their identity and the way their ancestors lived in past generations.
Immersing students in history has learning benefits and enables them to retain practical information within the brain. Learning outside the classroom is a powerful tool that is proven to boost social, emotional and personal development and contributes to the health and well-being of children and young people.
School tours and field trips reinforce course material and allows students to visualise and remember their experience more easily. Students who struggle with keeping their attention span learn more easily from a fun environment linked to their world.
When students enjoy cultural experiences, it is often the starting point of a lifelong journey of learning and discovery. Our school tours aim to teach children how to look at and to question what they see and this has been found to be invaluable for their development and understanding.
Group Day Tours
Day Tours are available for the most popular Irish attractions in the South of Ireland including Cobh Heritage Centre, Waterford City Museums, Kilkenny Castle, the Dunbrody Famine Ship and Emigrant Experience, and many more.
Unlike large tour operators who present a standard ‘one size fits all’ tour, we can arrange your visit to suit your personal need. For many people who cross the Atlantic, a trip to Ireland may be an emotional and special journey. Perhaps you and your group wish to discover more about a particular area or region – we can bring your story to life by completing tailored research, organizing your transport and booking a suitable venue for lunch. We will also ensure your trip is accessible for all of your group including those who need wheelchair or age supports. We have the expertise and the local knowledge to introduce you to Irish people and places.
Allow us to show you our hidden gems and some of Ireland’s best tourist offerings. Tour information is independently researched by historians and individuals with local knowledge providing the visitor with an opportunity to appreciate an authentic representation of the south of Ireland.
Discover the strong connection between the people of the south east of Ireland and those of Irish descent from Newfoundland.
The ties that bind both communities ensure Irish Newfoundlanders feel compelled to visit the homeland of their ancestors at some stage during their lifetime. One of our guided tours of Waterford City is customised to showcase the influence of the cod fisheries of the Grand Banks. Extend your trip to Dunmore East, where visitors can experience the last view their ancestors saw of the Irish coastline before entering the open waters of the Celtic Sea.
The opportunity is also available to hear a talk/lecture with regard to the history of the Irish of Newfoundland and to visit surrounding counties where people emigrated from.
The opportunity to learn more about the Irish of Newfoundland is always welcome. Members of our group have visited Newfoundland and we will continue this relationship for generations to come. Please get in touch if you are interested in a future visit to Newfoundland.
Shore Excursions for Cruise Passengers
Shore excursions for cruise passengers are available where cruise ships dock at Waterford. Allow us to share our landscape and attractions or simply take a tour of the city of Waterford and surrounds. We understand that time is important to you, we will take you on a 1-hour or 2-hour journey and return you to your vessel in advance of sailing.
