The Institute of Study Abroad is a Cultural and Sports College, based at the world famous surf town of Bundoran, Co. Donegal Ireland. We have been up and running since 1996, and we run a series of programs that are suitable for college students, college and university faculty trips, Individual Gap Year /Semester abroad students and camps for High School students. You can follow our high school programs here including our middle school/high school blog, but this blog is for our College students- (all 18+) programs – starting with Meredith College’s trip to Ireland in May 2009 and onwards to our current Semester (Gap Year ) program currently running. We have welcomed many, many individuals, faculty-led trips, people who stayed for three weeks, or six weeks or eleven weeks. We mix Irish students and USA, Canada, UK, European students, and our emphasis is on the enjoyment of the wonderful culture of Ireland.
