Located in the seaside village of Ardmore, Co Waterford, St Declan's National School is home to 114 children from the ages of 4 to 12.


The school is characterised by a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, one that's driven and encouraged by the teachers - and one in which learning comes naturally to the children.


Boasting excellent facilities, including a Science and Music room, extensive ICT equipment, great outdoor spaces and a  state of the art Astro-turf pitch , St Declan's school is an ideal place to grow and learn.

Green Schools

We would like to thank all the children, staff and parents who helped us in achieving our 4th green flag which covered all areas of Travel.  The children really enjoyed participating in this theme, especially the WOW/COW days (Walk on Wednesday and Cycle on Wednesday days) and also the Cycle Right programme.
Over the next two years we are going to work towards getting our 5th flag which will be our Biodiversity Flag .
