Educational Tours Connemara

If you’re seeking a holiday experience with hands-on activities, opportunities to learn new skills and chances to truly discover new cultures, an educational tour is for you.

With an education holiday you can take a few hours, a day or even a week and immerse yourself in an experience that’s much more doing than seeing.

Maybe you’d just like to take the time to enjoy a hobby that you never have time for.

Push yourself beyond your self-imposed limitations, try something you’ve always been just a little bit scared of. It is never too late to learn something new.

Below are educational activities to choose from:
