Every year more than 50 National schools choose the Burren Outdoor education Centre for their school tour.

It is easy to see why - we have over 30 years experience of using adventure activities to help young people build self confidence, develop team spirit, have fun and make friends.

All our activities take place in the amazing landscape of the Burren giving our visitors a unique environmental experience as well.

A BOEC school tour is designed to suit the age and abilities of each group; our staff are trained to ensure safe fun activities in the unique surroundings of the Burren. Choose from our range of activities depending on age group, or let our instructors help you decide.

Hot showers and changing rooms are available for each activity if required.

A hot/cold lunch can be provided if requested; this complimentary for teachers, as is tea or coffee.
