Welcome in the sunshine and festive fun of springtime with a semester in Dingle! Arriving in late January, you will see firsthand how our charming coastal village emerges out of its winter hibernation back into the full swing of spring. You will immediately and warmly be welcomed into the community at a time when there are few outside tourists. Spring semester students at SHU in Dingle get to experience life as a true local, marching in the St Patricks Day Parade – always a highlight of the year in Dingle – and hanging out with adorable newborn lambs.
Students studying for a full semester in Dingle get to visit the Cliffs of Moher, Galway and London, all included in the program fee, and enjoy ample time for independent travel. As the days get longer, we spend more and more time outside, availing of the many outdoors activities Dingle has to offer, including surfing, kayaking and horseback riding. With temperatures ranging from 48F in early February to 60F by May, the springtime weather in Dingle is extremely comfortable and perfect for adventures through the rolling green hills and along our sparkling shores. In addition to receiving tuition in the classroom from our distinguished faculty members, the bustling town and countryside of Dingle will be your springtime campus!
