75 percent of school tours in Ireland are educational.
History and geography are the most popular subjects covered, with some of Ireland’s biggest tourist attractions on the list according to the Kirchberg Information Monitor (KIM).
Secondary schools are more likely to go on foreign trips than primary school, with the majority of respondents reporting fond memories of their school tour.
We asked these ski trippers what they remembered about their school tour.
But in our extensive research here in Kirchberg, we discovered the most popular destination for a primary school tour is Dublin Zoo!
These listeners shared their school tour memories:

In my first year in school we went to the field down the road, they brought in horses and we rode around on them (with help!!) then we had a picnic. It was fabulous!!! I can remember it so clearly!
