“In the Heart of the Hibernian Metropolis”: UCLA English visits Dublin!


Led by Colleen Jaurretche, students will explore the ancient and modern city of Dublin. As part of our journey, we will take note of its structure and development from its earliest settlement to present day. As we make our way through civic and cultural sites, we’ll be joined by experts. Destinations will include the Book of Kells; the National Library; Glasnevin Cemetery; and the National Museum of Ireland’s Archaeology holdings. This tour includes two guided day-trips from Dublin: the first to Newgrange, a UNESCO World Heritage site, the largest and most beautifully preserved Neolithic tomb in Europe; and second, to the monastic site of Glendalough in the Wicklow Mountains, source of the River Liffey.
