Description:The class is a three credit English class that, depending on your major, can count as an elective or elsewhere if approved by your advisor. Included in the cost of the trip are all breakfasts, dinners, all travel to, from, and within Ireland, all admissions and fees, and the gratuity for the driver/guide. We stay in very nice hotels all nights except for when we are in the village of Sneem in County Kerry, where we will be staying in B&Bs. Sneem is one of the favorite places for students.
