Ireland: The Landscapes of the Southwest

Would you like to visit Ireland in the near future? Discover the great beauty of the west coast of Ireland during Spring Break 2014! The trip is open to all Undergraduate and Graduate students as well as staff, faculty and alumni. For this specific trip, students receive a tour of the West Coast of Ireland and make visits to the Cliffs of Moher, the Dingle Peninsula, the Killarney National Park, Bantry and Cork. In addition, arrangements are made to see Blarney Castle and the Cobh Heritage Center (which was a major departure port for Irish immigrants to the United States and the last port of call for the doomed Titanic). The focus of this trip is to provide an educational learning opportunity for those interested in Ireland's remarkable history.

Note: This tour is not for credit hours.
