Coláiste na Coiribe is a new-built 7,500sqm, 720 pupil Post Primary school located at Knocknacarra, Galway on an elevated greenfield site, and is the largest all-Irish education institution in Ireland. The school is situated adjacent to a larger site under the ownership of Galway City Council and a masterplan was developed for the overall site, with shared use of the playing pitch. The school accommodation generally consists of a three-storey north block which makes an urban edge to a future main road; a lower two storeys teaching & specialist south block; and a PE hall which addresses the east facing entrance plaza. The three blocks come together to create a sheltered, protected and dynamic courtyard, while maintaining views of Galway Bay to the south.
