Summer in Ireland and England

  • Details and Cost

    About the Program

    The history of Ireland and England have always been uniquely connected. The Republic of Ireland separated from the United Kingdom and gained its independence in 1921. The current relationship between the countries reflects their shared history. The two countries remain closely connected due to their close geographical proximity, shared history and culture, and the high level of trade between the two states. 

    Students will explore Ireland for three weeks. Beginning their exploration in the Aran islands and Galway, students will head northwards along the coastline, visiting sites along the way in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.  Through visits to Gaelic language areas, cliffs and castles, cathedrals and tombs, fortresses and museums, mountains and urban centers, students will explore the vibrant history, culture, and landscape of Ireland. The group will then cross the Irish Sea to England where students will spend close to a week exploring Britain’s cultural and historical sites as well as studying its environment. Excursions will include the Tower of London and Westminster as well as touring The Making of Harry Potter. 

    *Excursions subject to change.
