Education Outreach

Since its establishment, the Centre for the Study of Historic Irish Houses & Estates (CSHIHE) has operated a Schools Outreach Programme directed towards primary and second-level schools in the locality. To date, a number of very successful school visits have taken place with local primary and secondary students being aided in project work on local history. Tours of Maynooth's historic town, to the university campus and to historic houses in the area, notably Carton, Castletown, Leixlip Castle, and Hamwood, have also been facilitated.
