We are a small rural school just 8km from Youghal. We pride ourselves on being friendly and open and giving children the best education possible.
We have been on this site since 1961 but in 2018 we built an extension and renovated the older section of the school, giving us a modern 21st century building . The help from the community at this time was amazing, and with the support of families, past pupils and neighbours we also built a car park to ensure that children can arrive at school safely each day.
With three classroom teachers, one full time and one part time special education teachers, and an SNA children in Kinsalebeg NS benefit from smaller classes and individual attention.
Our school grounds are large and at break time children can run, play and enjoy the freedom of open space. We are currently working on our school garden to provide an area for those who prefer a quieter environment. Our mission is to to educate our pupils to

We take part in the Cumman ns mBunscoil hurling and football each year. We avail of the training programmes provided by West Waterford GAA and welcome coaches to our school. Each year we compete in the West Waterford Athletics in Dungarvan. We also take part in the FAI soccer completions for schools.
Every two years we bring children to swimming lessons in Youghal. We are currently involved in a DEAR (Drop Everything and Run) programme where we will endeavour to run around Ireland, without leaving the school grounds! We also like to do something a little different each year such as Irish Dancing, Hip Hop or Gymnastics
"Kinsalebeg N.S is a wonderful school with a fabulous team of friendly teachers & SNA's. The teaching, care & attention they give our children is exceptional. The recently developed carpark for parents is a fantastic addition to our school, providing excellent safety for children at school drop off and collection times"
My child has dyslexia,the teachers and sna staff in kinsalebeg school,always go above and beyond to met learning needs,they always find new and creative ways to support my child.
"My three children attended Kinsalebeg NS - and while are now older and gone from the school - the memories of their time at Kinsalebeg are very happy and positive. While Kinsalebeg School is not our local school we found that for us it was the best choice. A smaller school with a low teacher pupil ratio worked well for my three! The outside space for the children to play at break is fantastic."
