  • After touching down on the Emerald Isle, check in at your chosen accommodation and get started on your itinerary – there’s no time to waste! Your first stop is the IMMA – Ireland’s leading national institution for the collection and presentation of modern and contemporary art. This place is an art-lovers heaven! If you’d prefer, opt for the National Museum of Ireland: Decorative Arts & History – full of exhibitions to get your trip off to a fantastic start!
  • We suggest waking up early today, as there’s so much to cover. Classics, contemporary – it’s all here!
  • First on the agenda is The National Gallery of Ireland, where your students can feel inspired by the national collection of Irish and European art. Just a few minutes down the road is the Douglas Hyde Gallery – sure to be a hit with students who prefer contemporary art! Even better, the gallery is located within Trinity College, so it’s the perfect opportunity to take a trip to the Old Library and see The Book of Kells! Art one minute, medieval manuscripts the next – and all before lunchtime!
  • Have a bite to eat before walking to The Design Tower. Originally a sugar refinery, this stone tower is now home to some of Ireland’s award-winning designers, artists and craftspeople. These working studios reveal the various forms that art can take. Gander at the array of ceramics, jewellery, sculptures, fashion and textiles from 17 different designers. It’s a visit that’ll get the creative juices flowing in all of your students!
  • Top off your day with a walk around trendy Temple Bar – a haven for artists and designers alike.
  • If time allows it, why not squeeze in one last visit and head to EPIC: The Irish Immigration Museum? Located in Dublin’s Docklands, this interactive museum tells the story of the people who left Ireland and how they influenced the world. The award-winning attraction sheds light on what it means to be Irish – a superb way to end an inspirational trip to Dublin.
