Even though your adventure starts in Dublin, our field trips take you beyond the city to discover the culture and traditions of Ireland. (These trips are partially subsidized by IES Abroad.) 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.
All Writers Program students participating on this retreat will be taken on a 4 day, 3 night Writers Retreat to focus exclusively on your writing in an environment conducive to reflection, renewal, and inquiry.
Visit an open farm where you will have the chance to try Irish dancing, bake traditional Irish bread, learn to play an Irish drum called the bodhrán, and see 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, such as Gaelic football, hurling, and handball.
