Student Tours to Ireland 

Commonly known as the Emerald Isle, the country of Ireland has a charm that makes you never want to leave. This country might be small, but it’s packed full of beautiful castles, stunning landscapes and majestic mountains, that quite simply take your breath away.

A student trip to Dublin is an unforgettable experience for many, as the city is a maze of cobbled streets, dotted with eateries and is a living museum of its history. Medieval castles and cathedrals draw in the crowds and showcase the 18th century architectural wonders.

What’s more, the city is a hub for the arts; with music, literature and art at the heartbeat of what makes the city so special. With its assortment of art galleries and museums, it’s a special and unique destination and although it’s a perfect destination for all students, it’s particularly inspiring for those studying art and design.

Outside of the capital, there’s a wealth of beauty to be seen, such as the Rock of Cashel, the Cliffs of Moher, Galway and Skellig Michael. It’s little wonder that this country has been the backdrop to many famous films and TV shows in recent years.

Aside from the visiting the picturesque countryside and bustling city, one way to learn more about the country’s history and culture is to have a chat with the locals. It’s a great way to discover more about this fascinating country during your stay.
