Education

A visit for primary level students can be used to support various aspects of the curriculum including:
  • CSPE (appreciating our environment)
  • Art, Craft and Design (investigate by looking; learn about art through sculpture and architecture)
  • History (how people lived; the changes that took place over different periods and how people were affected by those changes; understanding local history and learning about evidence)

Worksheets are available for primary modules; contact us for more details.

Aspects of the Leaving Certificate curriculum can also be supported by a visit to Iveagh Gardens.

Social and cultural history, and Leaving Certificate biology (botany) and geography are particularly relevant.

We provide occasional workshops for children during school holidays and during Heritage Week. Check the website or contact us for further details.

We are also happy to assist students who are carrying out research on local history, horticulture, and architecture.
