National Schools

From the beginning of time, music has been a very important part of Irish culture and traditions. In the past our history was passed down through songs, music and storytelling.

The Coleman Centre offers a range of suitable activities for National Schools.

  • Visit the Coleman Cottage
  • Visit the music exhibition area – learn about the history of Irish traditional music through interactive touch screens, audio-visual, pictures, etc
  • Visit the Comhaltas Archive and artefacts
  • A music lesson on the bodhrán or whistle
  • Demonstration of musical instruments with a hands-on experience instructed by local musicians.

Cost ranges from €8 to €12 depending on activities chosen




The Centre is open all year round Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5:30pm.
