Social and Cultural Events

We believe that all courses should be complemented with an extensive social and cultural extra-curricular programme, allowing students to experience Irish life and culture and to get to know other students from the College, thus giving students the opportunity to be the part of an active, dynamic community.

Whatever your interests or lifestyle, there will be an appropriate and enjoyable activity for you. Day and weekend trips, museum and gallery visits, theatre, cinema, restaurants and pubs outings, school socials, costume parties, international events and sports fixtures are all regular features of our programme. Some activities are free and many are offered at discounted prices. In addition, arrangements can be made in different locations for most sporting activities.


Most of the activities below include games and competitions. Interesting prizes are won by the best participants. Please note that outdoor activities are weather permitting.
