The Jackie Clarke Collection | Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday 10am - 5pm | Free Admission



The Jackie Clarke Collection Education Programme offers a year-round schedule of workshops and tours for both primary and secondary school students.

Each learning experience is centred around the unique primary source material contained within the collection, allowing our young visitors to discover four centuries of Irish history in an inclusive and welcoming environment.

Workshops and Tours currently on offer include; The Great Irish Famine, 1798, The Discovery Tour, Mapping, as well as guided tours to suit all ages. We have recently added a walking ‘Ballina Historical Treasure Hunt’ tour to our offering. For the younger children we also offer a Story Telling workshop so there is something to cater for all age groups. For students of Senior Cycle History, The Jackie Clarke Collection Repository offers a unique resource for Irish history projects and research topics.
