Student Photo Gallery: Ireland

Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle for a good reason: hardly anywhere that SAS Fall 2013 voyagers traveled to was missing rolling green hills. Ireland is the third largest island in Europe and the twentieth largest in the world. It is also a very welcoming country steeped in history and culture. The following photos represent just a small selection of the adventures and experiences SAS students had on the Emerald Isle.
