About St. Gabriel’s School


A warm welcome to St Gabriel’s School, located in Dooradoyle in Limerick. We hope that you find our website both interesting and informative. It aims to show the many ways we are working together to achieve our vision;

“ To be a community of learners – children, staff and parents – aiming high to excel and exceed. We believe in motivating and inspiring all learners so they embrace their challenges with resilience and we support them to learn and develop to achieve to their potential. ”

St Gabriel’s School is an all through school welcoming learners from 4 to 18 years of age. We are a caring and nurturing environment where we encourage all our children to be ‘Aiming High’ each and every day. We teach our children to respect themselves and show respect and appreciation for others.

We provide an exciting curriculum so that all our pupils are able to develop their interests and talents and become happy, lifelong learners who acquire the skills and abilities and to become confident adults.

We motivate and inspire our pupils through providing high-quality experiences rooted in Assistive Technology and by offering a broad and balanced curriculum.

The pupil/teacher ratio is 6:1, with support from our SNAs.

The children have access to relevant therapies during school hours, including occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, hydrotherapy and nursing support. For more information on these therapies, visit St. Gabriel’s Centre website.
