Ski Centre School Tours



No matter the weather, fun is combined with learning on Ireland’s only indoor ski slope by our experienced and qualified instructors. Our slopes use a unique revolving technology that simulates real ski runs, allowing skiers to get in realistic length ski runs. We'll help develop better posture, balance, edge precision and rotation control, in turn improving fitness and confidence in your skiing.

Groups are divided into smaller groups that alternate on the slopes to practice their new skills through games and competitions. When not on the slopes, skill-based games to highlight the positive association between physical activity and movement are in play. Just 30 minutes on our slopes can cover up to 11 kilometres!

The exact duration of a school trip will depend on the size of your group. Each of our slopes accommodate three skiers at a time, rotating groups every 10 minutes to give leg muscles a break!

Whether you're an experienced skier or a budding enthusiast, we welcome everyone to join in the fun and develop their slope skills with us. If you’ve never skied before, our slopes are by far the easiest and safest way to learn. Once you get on the slope and hold onto the bar, you’ll be on your way! Instructors are beside skiers every step of the way and with the remote control they can control the speed and height of the slope. Like all good sports instructors, they can pre-empt any falls and bring the slopes to a stop at a touch of a button.

All equipment is included with our popular school trip option, but we recommend that thick sports/ski socks are brought along to wear underneath the boots. Our après-ski room is ideal for picnics to refuel afterwards!

Prices start at €10 per child.

Birthday parties


Together with their friends, your child will ski on the only indoor slopes in Ireland, with safe activities, skill-based games and fun competitions to suit absolutely every ability. All equipment is provided, with your 18 guests (maximum capacity) alternating every 10 minutes between our two slopes and games room for an hour. Food can be served in your private Après-ski lodge for a further 30 mins of celebrations, and the birthday child will also be gifted an additional ski lesson from us to be used another time.
