Specialist Trips

Our specialist trips are open to anyone with an interest in these programs

In 2018, we have a number of special interest trips. There are no pre-requisites, other than being an adult 18+ and being enthusiastic about an educational/cultural visit to Ireland. All of our programs are based in County Donegal, and our aim is to offer you an authentic and affordable way of travelling to Ireland and enjoying these opportunities to pursue your special interest. This year, we have four specialist trips; An Irish Studies trip and conference in January, a surf and music trip in June, and in September, we have a trip for creative writing and poetry, and a trip for photographers.
