Thank you for considering BCA’s Ireland summer program! I hope that you will choose to partake in this incredible study abroad experience and let me be your guide as you map out your own cultural adventures across Ireland and beyond. The beautiful campus of Maynooth University, with its 19th century gardens and courtyards, criss-crossed by stunning Harry Potteresque university buildings, is an ideal location to spend a summer in Ireland. This university town has everything you need and offers a pace of life which allows you to sample the “real Ireland” where people have time to chat and where there are no strangers, “only friends waiting to be introduced.” Plus, the amazing cultural city of Dublin is just a short train or bus ride away and is an excellent base from which to explore the whole of Ireland. I hope to see you in Ireland soon!
