Ireland: Humanities



13 days






Dublin, Glendalough, Wicklow, Kilkenny, Cork, Galway, & Belfast

This 13 day program takes students across Ireland to experience its rich culture and breathtaking landscapes, all while exploring seven cities and towns full of Irish charm and character.

There are many opportunities for students to experience the unique Irish culture, through museum visits, a theater performance, literary pub tour, Belfast black taxi tour, and an evening in Cork for Irish storytelling.

Throughout the program we visit some of Ireland’s most beautiful landmarks, including Giant’s Causeway, Carrick-A-Rede Bridge, Cliffs of Moher and Burren, and Howth Harbour and Cliffs.

The program includes a full day excursion Kilkenny, a charming medieval city, the vast expanse of the Wicklow Mountains, and the glacial valley of Glendalough, rich in stunning scenery and full of monastic artifacts.

We also take a full day excursion to the Aran Islands, best known for its ancient historical archaeological sites. Here we will visit the prehistoric fort of Dún Aonghasa, sitting atop a tall hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
