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. The school’s proximity to Galway City enables the children to visit the Museum, the library, art exhibitions, live theatre shows in the Town Hall and Black Box, book week events in Dubray, Baboro Children’s Art Festival and the Teddy Bear Hospital at NUIG.
Scoil Íde has been awarded a Digital School of Distinction Award, an Active School Flag and seven Green Flags to date.

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