Building Programme Update

Ardscoil Ris has evolved since it was established in 1963 and used the stables of Shelbourne House as its classrooms. Over time there were various extensions and additions. In 2009 a major €10 million extension and refurbishment programme began.


This has doubled the size of the school and provide a Social Area, Canteen, second Sports Hall, two new science laboratories, demonstration room, library and other specialists rooms and offices. Additionally there are two new astro-turf pitches to add to the sport halls and fitness studio. The completion of the building coincided with the 50th anniversary of the establishment of Ardscoil.
