Though you’ll be living and working in Dublin, you also have the opportunity to join IES Abroad organized field trips that take you beyond the city to discover the culture and traditions of your host country. These trips are available with an additional cost and are dependent on your work schedule. Here are a few possible destinations.
Take in many of the filming sites of Game of Thrones, a famous “troubles tour’ of Belfast, and the Giant’s Causeway, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Visit an open farm where you will have the chance to try out Irish dancing, bake traditional Irish bread, play hurling (Ireland’s national sport), and visit a bog.
Hike in Howth Head, a lovely seaside fishing village in North County Dublin.
Experience Gaelic Games
Immerse yourself in an authentic Irish experience as you learn about Ireland's national sports, Gaelic football, hurling, and handball.
Note: Field trip destinations and lengths of stay may vary according to term and availability.
