We welcome students from primary and secondary schools, and further and higher education institutions.
For the 2023/2024 academic year, visits to our office are available midweek only. Visits are limited to one per school, with a maximum of 40 per group.
A typical visit lasts approximately 90 minutes and includes a presentation and short film about Ireland and the EU, followed by a discussion and a quiz.
Topics covered can include:
- The history and foundation of the European Union
- The EU institutions and what they do
- Ireland and the EU
- How the EU is responding to key challenges such as climate change and the war in Ukraine
- What the EU means for young people
