Ed­u­ca­tion is for life and so are its re­wards.

Tar­bert Ed­u­ca­tion Sup­port Cen­tre is one such place where the con­cept of learn­ing is up­per­most. Based in Tar­bert Com­pre­hen­sive School, Tar­bert ESC is a won­der­ful venue for learn­ing and self-de­vel­op­ment and is a fan­tas­tic north Kerry re­source.
