Office of International Education
The Offices of the President and International Education at Champlain College offer an annual academic 10-day tour of Ireland and Dublin July 11-20, 2014, for staff, faculty, parents, students, alumni, and friends of Champlain College.
Led by faculty and staff of Champlain College Dublin, participants will gain an insider understanding of the country, its people, and culture, and a chance to see and learn about Champlain's study abroad program in Dublin.
Tour leaders include Stephen Robinson, Director of Champlain College Dublin and an expert on landscape, and other faculty and staff of Champlain College.
Enjoy Ireland first-hand: see the rolling green hills full of sheep and feel the ancient culture of the Irish, walk around the ground of Trinity College, taste the comfort foods of Ireland and have a pint of Guinness to wash it down.
Beyond Dublin, the tour features trips through the Irish countryside and the southwestern counties of Cork, Kerry and Clare where you'll visit historic sites, enjoy traditional music and Irish cuisine, and experience spectacular scenery. In Northern Ireland, you'll drive through Belfast in one of the famous black cab historical tours, led by a local expert to learn about its history and see how the city has largely rebuilt itself from the destruction of the Troubles. You'll also visit the Titanic Museum and see where the passenger liner was born.
For the day-by-day itinerary or for any additional questions you may have about the tour, please contact Dr. Stephen Robinson, Director, Champlain College Dublin, or contact Kathy Lynn, Office of International Education, Champlain College Burlington, 802-865-6485.
