Join us in Killarney National Park for a full day’s activity with Cappanalea OETC and Killarney National Park Education Centre. One part of the day can be spent in our field studies base in Knockreer participating in a wide range of nature activities which are linked to SESE.
The other half of the day can be spent doing one of the following activities: Kayaking or Orienteering. The orienteering is a fun way of introducing students to the life skill of navigation. The orienteering can be based around Knockreer house and gardens in the National Park. The Kayaking will take place at Ross Castle a short distance from Knockreer. Students will get the chance to explore Lough Léin and maybe catch a glimpse of the sea eagles with qualified instructors.
