Enjoy a pulsating re-telling of one of Ireland’s most pivotal battles through an interactive experience – A fascinating day out for families, school children, and anyone with an interest in history
The Battle of Aughrim Visitor Centre is ideal as a platform for a variety of projects and excursions. Children and teachers can gain fulfilment from learning about this historical site. There’s even a miniature version of the battlefield in a park beside the centre, which children love to visit. There are lots of trails to follow, and children under 12 can enjoy the adjacent playground.
We recommend a short visit by a teacher/group leader beforehand. This ensures you’ll be fully prepared for the actual visit and allows our guide to help you to formulate a plan for bringing schoolchildren and familiarise yourself with our COVID-19 protocols. If it’s not possible to visit in advance, we strongly recommend reading through this website for more information about the battle and the Visitor Centre, and to download any relevant online resources.
