Scoil Íde’s Location
Scoil Íde is located in a quiet cul-de-sac where the seashore, the Aquarium, Salthill Park and woodland areas and Eileen’s local shop provide a wonderful outdoor classroom.

We have also participated in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme and the Cell Explorers programme with students from NUIG.
