Our Location

Our school is located in a rural location in Cork North-West, enjoying its own separate site on the western outskirts of Newmarket town on the R756 route between Mallow and Abbeyfeale. It is conveniently situated in the Duhallow barony with easy access to Killarney, Cork, Tralee and Limerick.

To the north lies the beautifully restored Breffni Way, peacefully routed through the Ballyhoura Mountains where the reputed O’Sullivan Beara lead his followers. Looking south is the Island Wood – a local amenity area, often used for walks and orienteering and availed of by the school on a regular basis.

Situated at the West End, the school lies conveniently adjacent to the town park. Thanks to the local community, we thoroughly enjoy the benefits of its sports field, playground and tennis courts, all of which we avail of on a regular basis when weather permits. The boys gain hugely from the use of these fabulous local amenities and we sincerely appreciate their use for sports and school activities.

Please use the Google map to locate us and zoom in to view our school. We’re on the R756 just outside of town on the western side, heading towards Coolagh, Gortnaglogh and Lower Glenlara.
