Barcelona 2024 Booking Instructions

Teach Danann tour to Barcelona
Barcelona 2024

Ballymakenny College intends on offering a European trip next Easter 2024 for our 2nd year, Teach Danann students.

It is a trip that we believe will be of great value to our students. As well as deepening friendships, it also creates a sense of community amongst the children. We have run successful trips since 2015 and the feedback from students and parents has always been positive.

We will be travelling with School Tour Company. We have used this company in the past and feel that they tailor our requirements to provide a good value tour for our students.

Parents/Guardians should familiarise themselves with the School Trip Policy of Ballymakenny College available on our website.

For our European trip, we intend to travel to Barcelona, which is both culturally and educationally enriching.

Approximate dates of travel 26th March - 29th March 2024.
