Dublin has come a long way from its first days as a Viking settlement at the mouth of the River Liffey. Dublin is Ireland’s capital and most populous city and, as well as being classified an Alpha ranked world city, is considered one of the top global cities in the world.
This peaceful glacial valley in County Wicklow is home to the monastic village of Glendalough, an ancient religious society founded by Saint Kevin. Enjoy the beauty of the surrounding national park or absorb the storied-history on this Panrimo excursion.

Belfast, Northern Ireland
From Neolithic stones to St. Patrick to the Titanic, Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom that you can't miss. Visit the capital city of Belfast and see the River Lagan. Then grab your camera and head an hour north to the famous Glens of Antrim. This picturesque countryside might even make you believe in leprechauns and fairies!
On your excursion to Trinity College you will see the Book of Kells, created around 800AD by Columban monks, this gloriously illustrated book is a collection of the Christian Gospels intricately illuminated and preserved.

Why choose Dublin?
It’s a brilliant city. There’s always so much happening in terms of live music, comedy, and other forms of entertainment, and there’s a huge variety of restaurants too. Irish people are friendly and fun. One of the truly wonderful things about Dublin is that you can hop on a bus/train and within 30 minutes you’ll be out in the countryside, and there are a host of wonderful hiking/walking opportunities.
With easy access to school and to the attractions of the city, you’ll have no problem enjoying all aspects of your life abroad.

Easy Access to Public Transportation

The national currency is the Euro (EUR.) The euro is divided into 1cent, 2cent, 5cent, 10cent, 20cent, 50cent, €1, and €2 value coins, and €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200, and €500 value banknotes. €1 equals approximately $1.15.
The main mode of transport, and by far the most convenient, is the bus network run by Dublin Bus (Bus Átha Cliath), which services every major neighborhood. Student Leap Cards will allow you to pre-load fares for your trip and also features a pay-as-you-go service, if you don’t want to purchase fares beforehand, or are in a hurry and don’t have time to top off your card.
While it may come as no surprise that the Irish speak English, there are still plenty of cultural gaps to fill, particularly when it comes to slang. For example: French fries are called chips, and chips are called crisps. Keep an ear out!
Classified as a temperate climate, Dublin's weather is consistently mild, humid, and rainy. High temperatures rarely rise past the mid 60s, with lows hovering around 40 degrees, even in the winter months. There is steady fall of rain and mist, averaging 3-5 inches in a month. Best pack an umbrella and some galoshes!
