Ireland Study Trip

BRIMS' has sponsored five study trips to Ireland since our inception, the latest in June, 2018.  Everyone is welcome to participate; you don't need to be a BRIMS student or member to come on this trip!

Trips are run (depending on interest) every other year, the next tentatively scheduled for June/July of 2022.

Trip price includes:  airfare, on-ground transportation (we hire buses, so nobody needs to drive!), food, accommodations (in hostels; the hostels in Ireland are very nice!), classes in music, singing, dance and more.  This is just to give you an idea of all we offer and include for a reasonable price.

In addition to classes in music and dance we also visited with renowned Irish storyteller Eddie Lenihan, visited Cnoc Suain, a cultural center in the countryside of Spiddal and had sketching classes in Ennis.

Classes in Ireland will include (but won't be limited to):

  • Music (in all instruments that are played by those on the trip)

  • Dance:  Step dance, sean nos, social (sets & ceili)

  • Singing

  • Storytelling

  • Irish language

Classes for accompanying family members (note:  we do not prorate trip prices for accompanying family members/friends, but we do make sure there are plenty of activities and offerings for them!):

  • Singing

  • Beginner tin whistle

  • Social dance

  • Story telling

  • Irish language
