Kilfenora National School is a co-educational mainstream school situated at the western end of the village of Kilfenora, County Clare. The original school, built in 1841, was situated in the square on the site of the present Burren Centre. The present school was built in 1958, consisting of three classrooms. A prefabricated classroom was later erected on the school grounds. An extension consisting of an infant classroom, PE hall, staff room, storage rooms and kitchen was opened in 1985.

Our school is an amalgamation of the two schools that were in the parish: St. Attracta’s N.S., Inchovea and St. Fachanan’s N.S., Kilfenora. This amalgamation took place in September 2001.
