Rathdown School

Taster Days and Open Days

Getting a real sense of what is so unique about our school is so important.

That’s why we would ordinarily offer Taster Days and Open Days throughout the school year.  We can offer as an alternative our Virtual Tour and would be happy to arrange a Zoom Call with Mr Dermot Dix our Junior School Principal.

When available a Taster Day is a wonderful way for your child to experience life at Rathdown School first hand. Children take part in different lessons and activities in both smaller groups and full classes. Dates and availability of places for our Taster Days will be announced soon.

Taster Days and Open Days are scheduled for the following dates:

Junior School Taster Day  Date TBC
Senior School Taster Day for 5th Class Date TBC
Boarding Open Evening Date TBC
Junior School Open Day 18th September 2023 (Registration)
Senior School Open Day 18th September 2023 (Registration)
Senior School Taster Day for 6th Class Date TBC 


A visit during the school term is the best option since you will experience the school in full swing with students and staff going about their daily activities and classes.

As part of your visit, you can meet with the Junior School Principal and the Head of Boarding if you are considering boarding at Rathdown.

If there is a particular aspect of school life you would like to see, or if you would like to visit the school at some other time, please call our Registrar, on +353 (0)1 285 3133 or email the Registrar and Jenny will be happy to make individual arrangements or fill out our Enquiry form
