Our Passion Led Us Here!
The Irish Life Experience was founded on the belief that cultural exploration can play an important role in helping to develop a young adult’s identity. Since 1998, our executives, managers, teachers, and counselors have successfully led countless groups of students abroad.
Our experienced team is dedicated to helping students learn about different cultures and traditions, as well as maintaining the highest level of education, safety, and fun. The superior experience and safety that the Irish Life Experience provides is only matched by the selection of educational classes, workshops, and fun-filled Irish tours provided to each student.
