Coolwood Wildlife Park


A visit to Coolwood Wildlife Park in Killarney, Co.Kerry is included in our leisure programme. An officially recognised Zoo it has a superb range of wildlife which includes monkeys, illamas, rabbits and a comprehensive range of birds from around the World.

Irish farm & Countryside


Sunfort is ideally located in the heart of rural Ireland which is the centre of the Irish Dairy Industry. Situated on a working dairy farm students can enjoy the relaxing country setting. This makes an especially secure location for teenagers allowing parents peace of mind for their childrens safety. The school itself is a new building with all the modern amenities and comforts one would expect. The classrooms are facing onto the beautiful Irish countryside allowing for a serene learning environment for both student and teacher alike.

Castles


There are many fine examples of Castles in Ireland. Indeed in Liscarroll itself lie the ruins of Liscarroll Castle, a large 13th century Hiberno-Norman fortress. It still towers over the village and is the subject of an 1854 poem by Callaghan Hartstonge Gayner which concludes: Beneath its folds assemble now, and fight with might and main, That grand old fight to make our land “A nation once again”, And falter not till alien rule in dark oblivion falls, We’ll stand as freemen yet, beneath those old Liscarroll walls.

History


Ireland, internationally known as an island of Saints and Scholars, is famous for its standards of excellence in education and learning. This emphasis on education has driven the Irish economy in the past. Uniquely Ireland has a reputation for a welcoming and friendly environment that students Worldwide cherish.
