Weekend Programme

The King’s Hospital offers an exciting array of weekend activities to our students through our Weekend programme. We have a wide variety of activities planned for next year including, cooking, bowling, arts and crafts, trips to dublin to shop and visit various museums, indoor climbing, weekends away and lots of other trips and on site activities.

All the activities and events enrich your child’s residential life experience. Many of the trips and events are selected with the boarding students in mind, but all boarders enjoy the wide variety of adventures offered.

All trips are properly supervised under the direction of Miss Sarah Bill, Assistant Housemistress of Grace House. Enrolment and consent forms are required well in advance.

 A large proportion of the activities and events are free but a number of off-campus activities incur an additional charge.


Please register below. Additional registrations may be added during the year. Your account will be charged for the appropriate amount after each event.

In the case of activities requiring reservations and/or pre-purchased tickets (“Reserved” events marked with *) the ticket is the student’s responsibility and is non-transferable after signup. Cancellations or “no shows” will be charged to the account.

For non-reserved events, cancellations are permitted by notifying Miss Bill  no later than the Wednesday prior to that weekend’s activity, otherwise a €25 late cancellation fee will be charged.
