Summer School

Every year the Humanist Association of Ireland and our counterparts in Northern Ireland jointly organise a Summer School. In 2019, this will be held at the Bridge House Hotel in Tullamore, Co. Offaly, on the weekend of 7th and 8th of September.

This is a two-day theme-based event with guest speakers, discussions and workshops, as well as plenty of social activities. It’s great fun as well as giving fascinating insights into widely varying areas of Humanism.



The theme this year is Humanism and the New Ireland and we are in the process of organising a diverse programme that’s sure to be very stimulating. We will announce the programme at the end of May, so keep an eye on this site and on Facebook.

There will be a three-course meal at the Bridge House Hotel on the Saturday evening, followed by some of the traditional entertainment. The menu for the Saturday night meal can be viewed here.

It is advisable to book accommodation in Tullamore early to avoid disappointment.
