Welcome to our virtual open evening

Set in 550 acres, Clongowes is Ireland’s leading boarding school for boys. A Catholic school in the Jesuit tradition, the cornerstone of our boarding school ethos is ‘Cura Personalis’ or ‘Care of the Individual’. We aim to help students identify their individual talents and to support and encourage them to develop and grow their gifts – whatever they may be. Since 1814, Clongowes has been a home from home for boys from Ireland and further afield who enjoy the wide range of opportunities for academic growth, sporting achievement, artistic expression and importantly, who develop deep bonds of friendship that last a lifetime. We hope that you enjoy our virtual open evening and that you discover what makes Clongowes such a special place.
