Lead your students on your very own custom designed program in Ireland.

We specialize in experiential learning. We know that there is so much more to learning than what happens in a classroom and we believe in facilitating meaningful interaction between participants and their host culture in Ireland. This interaction makes for a lasting educational impact and an unforgettable experience.

With over 50 years experience in the field of intercultural learning programmes, EIL/AFS provides you with unique access to academics, community organizations, local leaders, politicians, schools, universities, artists, musicians and Irish families all over the country. We pride ourselves in our attention to detail, our quality logistical arrangements,  our 24-hour local support and our ‘can do’ attitude.

Why Choose EIL?

“Ireland’s vast history and the large amount of IT businesses in and around Dublin made Ireland a great choice for our students. Our program was created with a nice variety of professional and cultural visits so the students continued to experience new things and learn throughout the duration of the trip.” — Steve Ebben, Instructor Information Technology, Fox Valley Technical College

“I can’t thank you enough for your assistance with our program.I have never met anyone who took more care with any of our programs.You were absolutely superb, and I hope that we have the opportunity to use EIL again, hopefully with more students!”  — Ryan Dye, Director of International Education, St Ambrose University

“I have taken groups of American students on trips abroad since 1992 and have always had a wonderful experience.However, nothing compares to the recent experience I had with our group of 13 Americans on the EIL trip to Ireland.You have the market cornered on great service! You all survived my frequent emails and pleas for play titles, you crafted our trip with care and personalisation, and gifted us with the best tour guide one could dream of! I will never again consider study abroad trips on my own when EIL is an option.” Dr Corrine Johnson, Professor, Theatre Department, St Ambrose University

“We had a delightful time in Ireland.The students were awesome and under Sarah’s guidance that got to learn, play, relax, and experience the beautiful country you get to call home.” — Lois McCollough, Vice President for Finance and Management, Defiance College

“I so love dealing with you and EIL. It feels like we have family in Ireland.Your greatest asset is the full service and attention that you provide to your clients. Your efforts to stay connected throughout the trip planning process and your willingness and expertise in offering a strong academic experience for our students is your strength.” — Mary Ann Studer, McMaster School for Advancing Humanity, Defiance College
