The annual boarding fee for full time 7 day boarding is currently €6,950. The boarding fee can be paid in three installments; June, August and January. There is a charge for extras such as transport and recreation, laundry, school diaries and printing. Extras must be paid for in September.

A Boarding Grant known as the Remote Area Grant is available from the Department of Education to cover the boarding costs in certain circumstances. Please see Remote Areas Grants on www.education.ie for further details.

Six scholarships are awarded annually to students entering first year who show a particular talent or proficiency in the Irish language, and in any of our traditional arts – music, song, or dance. These are decided on the School Open-Day in the year prior to admission to Coláiste Íde.
