Maynooth is a small town that welcomes students warmly. With just one main street and a few pubs, everyone in Maynooth knows everyone else. Despite its size, however, you'll find virtually everything you need in this colorful town. Since Maynooth is only fifteen miles from Dublin, it's also easy to travel to the city for a day or evening.
Maynooth is located in County Kildare, especially well known for its horse-racing; several famous tracks are located in the area. County Kildare has some beautiful early Christian ruins, including the high Celtic crosses at Moone, Castledermot, and Old Kilcullen.
Ballyvaughan is a small but lively village with a very traditional feel. You'll find quaint shops, pubs, and excellent traditional Irish music. Set near the water on the exposed side of Galway Bay, Ballyvaughan is buffeted by strong winds and constantly changing weather. Rainbows are common all along the coastline.
Ballyvaughan is known as the "gateway to the Burren," an eerie coastline of incredible exposed limestone. Relatively quiet during the winter, the Burren attracts archaeologists, artists, botanists, cavers, geologists, hill walkers, historians, and tourists throughout the summer. With its unearthly landscape and historic ruins dating from prehistory to the Middle Ages, the Burren is well worth exploring.
Limerick, in the southwestern portion of Ireland, is one of the three counties located in the "Lower Shannon" region. The River Shannon (the longest river in Ireland) runs through Limerick, and has provided lush grasslands and favorable conditions for settlers over the ages. Within the County Limerick is the city of Limerick - the third largest city in Ireland. Culturally, it is earning the reputation as a city of literary and historical interest.

It is no wonder that Ireland is often referred to as the Emerald Isle. From the lush, green, rolling hills of the countryside to the dramatic coastal scenery that borders its shores, this small island nation is truly a gem. The capital city of Dublin is a bustling and vibrant walk through time. Strolling the city's streets, students witness a collision of Georgian architecture and Gaelic history with modern art, music, and urban culture. From the contemporary, creative Temple Bar neighborhood to the traditional folk song-singing pubs of the West Coast, Ireland offers summer program participants the opportunity of a lifetime.
