Delivering high quality outdoor learning to schools, colleges, groups and individuals across the island of Ireland. FSC Ireland has two well equipped and easy to reach centres, located on the east and west of the Island.

Food at our centres

For one day visits you are usually asked to bring a packed lunch unless it is specified otherwise.

Residential visits include freshly prepared seasonal meals, with a hot breakfast, packed lunch and choice of evening meal. Food is sourced locally wherever possible and we can cater for any dietary requirements. All of our residential centres have been awarded the Soil Association’s Food for Life Served Here Bronze Award which recognises organisations which go the extra mile to make sure children are receiving healthy, nutritious and sustainable meals.
