Ballyhoura Outdoor Classrooms are unique and inspiring places that are provided by Ballyhoura Heritage & Environment CLG, a non-for-profit community organisation, to be a part of every local school's learning environment.


Each Ballyhoura Outdoor Classroom is a beautiful, natural place specially chosen and managed for learning.  Griston Bog is a raised bogland habitat with facilities especially designed to cater for outdoor activities in Science & Maths;  Lough Gur is a Neolithic archaeological site incorporating history & science and Doneraile Court & Park is a 17th Century Demesne with an abundance of space to explore the flora and fauna and aquatic life along the river.
