Education in this country is currently experiencing great change. We in Kinsale College are constantly reviewing our approach to the teaching of learners to meet these challenges. We are continuously developing and adapting our courses to reflect changes in work practices across industry and our links with businesses in Kinsale and the wider country.

We welcome learners of all ages, nationalities and abilities including mature students who wish to return to education and training.
