Northern Ireland offers a wealth of educational itineraries such as a politics tour of the Troubles and Peace Process in Belfast, to a geography field trip exploring the basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway on the edge of the Antrim plateau.

The Republic of Ireland, the birthplace of world-renowned writers such Beckett, Behan, Joyce, C.S Lewis, Bernard Shaw, Sheridan, Wilde and Yeats, offers much for literature students, while history groups can explore the Republic's rich development from the potato famine, Great War, 1916 uprising and war of independence all brought to life in Dublin. Schools looking to explore traditional rural Irish life will love a visit to the Causey working farm where they can have a go at turf cutting and céilí dancing.
