27th – 31st July 2022 | St. Patrick’s College Maynooth
There will be a number of scheduled events during the Summer School, these include the Welcome Reception on the opening night and a supper and dancing on the Saturday evening of the Summer School.
On the Friday afternoon there will be an option of going on a led Heritage walk, which will commence in Maynooth and organised by the Summer School.
You are asked to register your interest when registering for the Summer School if you intend to attend the led walk along the Royal Canal as this will help greatly with the smooth planning of the excursion.
Music and Song!
There are many local pubs which serve bar food and pints. On Thursday and Friday night there will be a traditional Irish music session in the front bar of Fitzgeralds Roost Bar on the Main Street in Maynooth.
Please find below some information which we hope you will find useful as you begin to plan your time in Ireland during the Summer School – and perhaps beyond…
