Kenmare Adult Education Centre continues to provide a Centre for learning in the Kenmare and surrounding areas. We try to provide a friendly and supportive learning environment to participants on courses, which are designed to offer basics for newcomers and up to Fetac level 6 for those looking for progression to higher education. The Centre offers a wide range of courses in many subjects, from short taster courses to those leading to Fetac certification, from level 3 to 6. These include Information Technology, Painting, Photography, Woodcraft, Horticulture and Business.

The list of computer classes run at the Centre continue to be popular, they range from complete basics for beginners, to more challenging applications for more advanced students. The art department  provides courses in different media and at varying levels, from short fun courses to Fetac level 5 Painting. Some students from the Centre have gone on to exhibit at well attended exhibitions. Photography is also a very popular area, and we have run courses from very beginners to Fetac level 6, some of our students have exhibited in a number of local galleries, and taken part successfully in national competitions.
