Irish Studies Program
Irish Studies is a six-week, nine credit hour program designed for all majors. We'll travel around the island and visit sites connected to our studies as well as some of the most beautiful tourist locations. We'll visit Stormont, Northern Ireland's parliament, and chat with members face to face. We'll visit spots where great Irish authors, such as W.B. Yeats, penned some of their greatest works. We'll pray together in Saul, the site of St. Patrick's first church in Ireland. We'll enjoy Irish culture, great fish & chips, Irish stew, and of course the best cup of tea you'll find in the world!
