Who We Are

An Irish scouting organisation established in 2018 and an observer member of the UIGSE-FSE, a worldwide organisation with 65,000 members in a total of 22 countries. We are an association of lay faithful recognised by the Holy See.

The Scouting method practiced by the Scouts of Europe is based on the pedagogy of Robert Baden-Powell, enriched by Father Jacques Sevin (France), Jean Corbisier (Belgium) and Count Mario di Carpegna (Italy) in the 1920s.

Through our activities, we support family upbringing to help children become responsible and happy citizens and Christians, open to God and other people, coherent in their thoughts, words and actions.

Scouting Branches

Guides and Scouts of Europe- Ireland is divided into 2 sections- Male and Female. Each section is further divided into 3 branches which cater to specific age groups, designed to aid development at their respective stage.

If you want to know more about the scouting group or interested in serving as a chief, please feel free to get in touch with us.
