Spend time in the splendor of Ireland with Central Arizona College’s Study Abroad Program in County Donegal & Dublin. The lush Irish landscape is your backdrop to all the cultural, artistic and historic riches this country has to offer.

Students will participate in a literature class during the spring semester, exploring stories, poetry & novels from around the world with a special focus on Irish authors, including W.B. Yeats.

While in Ireland, students will be treated to daily lectures from Dr. Niamh Hamill of Institute of Study Abroad Ireland and excursions to historical sites to tie lessons to real-life experiences.

This program takes place over Central Arizona College’s spring break, so students will enjoy exciting outside activities, many of which are included in the program costs.  Activities may include:

  • Horseback Riding
  • Surfing
  • High-ropes Course
  • Cliff Jumping
  • Archery

Plus, students may participate in a St. Patrick’s Day parade with locals in the charming town of Bundoran. Our Irish hosts will also take students to Dublin for an overnight excursion in this magical, modern city.
