Glenstal Abbey in County Limerick, Ireland.
New residential summer camp for Irish College of English
The Irish College of English has partnered with residential boarding school, Glenstal Abbey, to offer a new residence for juniors in County Limerick, Ireland.

The Glenstal Abbey Residential Summer Camp will be set in a 500-acre estate, surrounded by woodland and lakes, with the main castle housing dormitories, a library and dining hall.

 

Academic and sports facilities will be in the more modern buildings on-site, including classrooms, laboratories, music and cinema rooms, a Multimedia Centre and a library.

 

"We are delighted to announce our partnership with Glenstal Abbey and look forward to welcoming students to our stunning new residential campus," said Ian McElhinney, Manager at Irish College of English.

 

The programme offered at the residential camp will include 15 hours of English language tuition per week, with six hours of 'New Skill' Electives, such as music, cookery, archery and practical science.

 

There will also be a range of sports and outdoor activities available for students to enjoy, with football and rugby pitches, tennis courts, an athletics track and golf course. There is also a lake for water sports, such as kayaking, a climbing wall, and orienteering to make use of the camp's rural location.

 

Weekend trips will allow students to see more of Ireland, including the capital of Dublin, the Cliffs of Moher and Galway.
