A unique insight into all things Irish
To understand a country, you also need to understand the culture. EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is the perfect activity for international students who are curious about Irish culture.
The museum offers a great introduction to the history and culture of Ireland for students of language schools, as well as an inspiring springboard into a discussion on global emigration.
