Ireland’s longest running environmental/cultural summer school
Conamara Summer School is a week long exploration of the magical island of Inishbofin, off the coast of Conamara. A multidisciplinary team of poets, writers, musicians and scientists including botanists, zoologists and marine biologists explore the human and natural history of the island which includes field trips, lectures, workshops and concerts. This school makes a much appreciated and significant contribution to the economy of the island.

The Summer School is approved by the Dept. of Education & Science as inservice for teachers.
