As the capital and largest city in Ireland, the city of Dublin offers the amenities of a culturally rich city. However, a small population of 1.5 million, gives Dublin the welcoming atmosphere of a small town. The city is abuzz with activity and visitors will be enthralled by the numerous restaurants, art galleries, museums, theaters, shops and music venues. As part of the program, you will participate on industry visits (such as Dublin Aerospace, Pfizer’s Grange Castle Biotech Plant, and National Chemical Company) as well as go on excursions to the Cliffs of Moher, Aviva Stadium, Trinity College, and Dublin Castle.
