A Magical Celtic Garden Invites You for a Stroll
St. Brigit’s Garden in the West of Ireland, at just 30 minutes-drive from Galway City, is a fabulous tourist attraction housing four charming peaceful gardens comprising native wildflowers, a lake, a fairy fort and native woodland paths in a space of 11 acres. What’s more, each of the gardens centres around a theme based on the four Celtic seasons. For its warm Irish hospitality and its interest and focus on families, St. Brigit’s also won the Georgina Campbell Family Friendly Destination in 2017.
This renewed site is not only a peaceful beautiful place to stroll around and relax, but it also provides education programmes for student groups who want to learn more about Ireland's ecosystem.
Below are the 3 workshops that St. Brigit’s Garden offers to student groups:
- Discover Nature’s Power – your group will learn more about climate change, energy and global citizenship. This programme also includes the possibility to do something practical by using a range of wind, hydro and solar technologies to do experiments. This is a great opportunity for team bonding and critical thinking.
- The Global Goals Challenge – with this workshop your group will be spit up in various teams, which will have to co-operate and think critically to try to solve some puzzles related to sustainable development issues.
- Environmental Leadership – this programme is perfect for groups who are keen on using sustainable technologies to carry out an environmental action. This way, you will also improve your teamwork and social skills.
If your group is into nature, another delicately maintained garden can be found at Kylemore Abbey in Connemara along the Wild Atlantic Way. Have a picnic there and enjoy some of their famous scones while you’re surrounded by stunning nature!
