Explore Dublin, Ireland
One of Europe’s most youthful cities, the charm and ancient heritage of Old Dublin still shines through amongst today’s emerging European tech hub and growing multi-cultural population. For a true taste of Irish culture, Dublin is the place.
Study Tours & Cultural Excursions
Every CIEE semester program has frequent cultural excursions uniquely designed to complement the program’s academics and enhance students’ cultural immersion.
In addition to getting to know Dublin with cultural activities such as guided walking tours, visits to museums, cathedrals, galleries, and historic sites, past excursions have included:
- Walking in the footsteps of 6th century monks at Glendalough, an ancient monastic settlement nestled in a spectacular valley in the Wicklow Mountains
- Exploring Ireland’s pre Christian past at the ancient tombs in the World Heritage listed Boyne Valley
- Touring the cathedrals, castles and breweries of Kilkenny, the most complete medieval city in Ireland
- Wrestling with the challenges of identity politics in post conflict Belfast
Where Students Study
Our Center in Dublin is part of the CIEE Open Campus Block Network. CIEE Dublin is located on the All Hallows campus of Dublin City University and offers students easy access to restaurants and cafés, nightlife, and a variety of shops. The leafy 19th century campus is located in the suburb of Drumcondra, just north of the city center.
Dublin City University (DCU)
DCU was established in the early 1980s and hosts 16,000 students. Its multidisciplinary programs stimulate entrepreneurial awareness and activity through strong links with Dublin-based and international businesses.
