      About Ireland

      The Emerald Isle is one of Europe’s most prized jewels. It is ranked just outside the top 10 most "peaceful" nations in the world to visit, in comparison to USA which is ranked 121. 

      Woven with wild greenery and Gaelic legends, rugged Atlantic beaches and mystery-shrouded sites rub shoulders with the cosmopolitan cities of Belfast and Dublin, where literary history and warm Irish hospitality are always in abundance. 

      There is no better or safer place to study & play soccer with guaranteed colligate credits transferring back to your US college. All our education programs are accredited by the MSCHE (Middle State Commission for Higher Education).
