Study Abroad in Ireland

Summer Session: Aug. 6-17, 2018

Ireland: A Food Story

Ireland is an ideal setting for an immersion into food, environment and cultural sustainability. Based throughout Ireland, students will use the lens of food to focus on food systems, policy and security issues. Led by MU faculty Candance Gabel and local chefs, botanist, farmers and businesses students will experience cooking classes, food demonstrations, distillery tours, purveyors, farmers from grass fed animal products to the bounty of the Atlantic and North Sea. Students will tour sites in Dublin, Sandy Cove, Skibbereen, Heir Island, Derryclough, Bunratty, Doolin, and Kilfinora. There will be free time for personal exploration in Dublin, Cobh, and Bunratty.
