The Ireland program allows up to 15 students to travel to Tully Cross, Ireland, a small island country with a rich and varied history.

During the spring semester, students spend time in the classroom at Lourdes University in preparation for their travel to Ireland. The travel dates are approximately May 31 – June 16, 2019. This study-away program is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Lourdes students, regardless of their academic interests or their previous travel experience.

Students study on a campus on the western coast of Ireland in Tully Cross, County Galway. Students and two faculty members live in thatched-roof cottages.
