The European Commission Representation regularly hosts visits from primary and secondary schools and universities.
A typical visit lasts just over an hour and can include a presentation on the history and development of the European Union (please indicate at the time of booking any specific topics you would like us to cover), a DVD presentation on Ireland and the European Union and a quiz based on students' knowledge of the EU.
A visit to the European Commission may be of particular interest to secondary school teachers of CSPE, Transition Year, Leaving Cert History or Business.
Students can learn about the European Union policies and institutions, the EU decision-making process and the impact of EU membership in Ireland. A wide range of publications and classroom materials are available free of charge from the Representation.
Our office is located at Europe House, 12-14 Lower Mount Street, Dublin 2, within walking distance of Leinster House, the National Museum and the National Library.
In exceptional circumstances, staff from the Representation may be able to visit schools that are unable to call to the offices in Mount Street. For logistical reasons, this service is limited to Dublin city and environs.
