The University of the Third Age (U3A) is the provision of educational and learning opportunities, in a socially friendly setting, to those of older generations who wish to keep their minds active and to continue to acquire knowledge on a variety of subjects, not necessarily academic. This is done either from resources within the Group, or from speakers and teachers drawn from other centres of learning outside the Group.


The membership is drawn from Blessington itself and the surrounding area, presently including all points from Donard to Naas and Straffan.


The U3A meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. From 10am to 1pm.  

Fee: TBC
