Enjoy the rich heritage and tradition of Ireland while also
experiencing the country’s distinct culture face-to-face. This unique program,
in it’s 37th year, was founded on the belief that fostering an appreciation of
other cultures is an important part of an individual’s development.
Students receive an education that goes beyond any nation. The Irish
Way is truly a lesson in international citizenship.
Since 1976, our executives, managers, teachers and counselors have
successfully led countless groups of students to the Emerald Isle.
Our experienced team is dedicated to helping students learn the Irish
culture and Irish traditions, as well as maintaining the highest level of education,
safety, and fun.
The superior experience and safety that the Irish Way Team provides is
only matched by the quality selection of educational workshops, classes, and
fun-filled Irish tours provided to each student.
