Over 13,000 students visit the Park each year as part of their primary, secondary or teritary education programmes.
Learning material and content can be adapted to any requirements needed and is constantly evolving in a setting that can not only showcase the world’s main habitats but deliver practical, hands-on experiences.
For details of the full range of School Tours and Courses available at Fota, see our Education & Tours section.
A ‘Behind the Scenes’ Guided Tour is just one of the options available to groups interested in learning about the Park in a less formal setting.
We can cater for school groups looking for a fun day out or a group of visitors arrived into the Cork area by bus, train or cruise ship.
