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.

Every CIEE semester program has frequent cultural excursions and a multi-day study tour uniquely designed to complement the program’s academics and enhance students’ cultural immersion. In Dublin, past study tours and excursions have included:

  • Visits to Ireland’s medieval city of Kilkenny
  • Traveling back centuries in time at Ireland’s National Heritage Park in Co. Wexford to see how ancient and medieval Irish lived
  • Guided tours of museums, cathedrals, galleries, and historic sites
