Students are responsible for making their own travel arrangements and need to arrive in Galway on or before June 1, 2017. All students will meet at the Galway Citylink coach station (http://www.citylink.ie/home) at 2:00 pm, Thurs, June 1, 2017. Ireland has excellent public transportation with regular coach and train service from Dublin city center and Dublin airport to Galway. The coach station is located one block away (less than five minute walk) from the train station and Eyre Square in the heart of Galway. A project representative will meet the students at 2:00 pm, and will then transport them by mini-van to the port of Cleggan, and then by ferry to Inishbofin (http://inishbofinislanddiscovery.com/).
If you miss your connection or your flight is delayed, please call, text, or email the project director immediately. A local emergency cell phone number will be provided to all enrolled students.
Citizens of the US and Canada do not require visas to enter Ireland. You will need your passport to be valid for at least 90 days and will enter on a tourist visa.
No vaccinations are required for entry to Ireland but anyone working in archaeology in Ireland needs to have an up-to-date tetanus shot.
