Activity/Tour


This is a program designed for students or adults who want to take a break and explore culture - but be productive, get some qualifications, meet other students and adults, and have a good time! We do a Fall and Spring Program of 12 weeks, and we train you to become a surf & outdoor sports instructor. You meet with other Irish and overseas people, ages 18-45, and you become part of the team at Donegal Adventure Centre, which is Ireland's largest outdoor education centre. You live in the small surf-town of Bundoran, Ireland, which is full of music, character and culture, and has wonderful access to the stunning scenery and history of Ireland.

Typical Day


Some people do this for the surfing and outdoor activities- some do it so they can live in Ireland like a local, and become immersed in a small, lovely Irish community. Whatever the reasons, you are made welcome. It will help if you like sports, as the mornings are about improving your skills as an outdoor instructor. But no one forces you - and if you'd prefer, for example, to photograph the other instructors, or do something different, that's OK. But mostly, you will swim, surf, climb, lifeguard, and get the world-recognised qualifications of Surf Lifeguard by the end of the 12 weeks. You will also participate in the work that goes on in Donegal Adventure Centre and work with youth and adult groups. You will become part of the community and the staff, and the town. There is a very lively social life- lots of pubs, live music, - and there is excellent access to Dublin & Galway, and many places of interest in Ireland.

Age range, type of group


We welcome adults of any age, but you must be at least 18 years old. If you are younger, please see our summer program for 11-18 year olds. If you are a family or group, email us, we do custom programs for all ages and for all types of groups.

Sleeping and meals


We offer accommodation in private rooms on campus. We do not include meals in the fees, but there is a restaurant on campus, and many options for food, including self-catering. The campus accommodation has free wifi and guest computers, free use of kitchens, drying rooms and parking.

Policies & Restrictions


The legal age for drinking alcohol in Ireland is 18 years. We advise students between 18-21 to discuss with their parents how they will approach this limit. We are committed to providing a great cultural experience for all adults, but we will remain in contact with parents of USA students between the ages of 18 and 21 years if behaviour is problematic.

Rates


Our programs are generally 12 weeks long, and we have Fall (Sept-Dec) and Spring (Jan-Mar) terms. We are also open to providing internships and shorter or more flexible programs, depending on requirements. Please email us and tell us what you need.

Other Information


If you want to come to Ireland, and avoid the tourist-thing, this is a superb way to do it. It is a healthy, fun option, with no pre-requisites, and some of it will be very different to your experience...but it is utterly rewarding, and super value for money.

Discounts Offered


Our 12 week programs are approx 3000 euro including accommodation and tuition - contact us for information re discounts and special offers,
