School Groups

We are delighted to welcome groups of younger visitors to Nano Nagle Place, whether you are a school group, or a youth organisation. We offer a group rate for groups of 8 or over of €4 per head.

Our heritage centre is designed for discovery and really appeals to younger visitors (who can use the technology better than us!) We can facilitate a visit where the group are allowed to just ‘explore’, or give teams a simple work sheet that encourages them to interact with the exhibition. We are working on longer and more structured activities and will share more information as these evolve.

We love to welcome school trips to Nano Nagle Place. Our schools programme is under development at present. If you have any suggestions or ideas about learning activities you would like to see happening at Nano Nagle Place email

Here is some feedback from recent school tours

“From the moment we arrived until the second we departed, the staff treated both teachers and children alike with warmth, engagement and genuine hospitality. We all spoke on the train returning to Cobh about how the team made the experience so enjoyable and engaging.

The tours were carried out in an organised and well run manner by splitting the group into teams. Throughout the morning, the staff members co-ordinated the teams into different zones of the centre and this system worked seamlessly. This was no easy feat with 90 children to manage!

The children (and teachers) learned so much about Nano and 18th century Cork from the staff members. I feel that while the facility itself is state of the art and a gem in the heart of the city, it is only enhanced and perfected by the dedication of each and every one of those staff members who looked after us today and they deserve to take a bow!”

“We took a group of 12 year old children to visit this museum just before Christmas ’17. The staff were very friendly, informative and pitched their tour perfectly to the children. The cost was very reasonable, so little that we paid more then asked. The building and displays are a wonderful mix of old and new. The museum really captures the reality of Nano Nagle’s mission. The tour was also modified to include much information about Christmas in Cork at the time of Nano Nagle. I will certainly return with a class.”
