Irish Archaeological Field School, The Burren Co.Clare Ireland, Summer 2016


Caherconnell Archaeology School: Season 2016- May 30th through August 5th (consisting of 2, 4 and 6 week sessions)


Caherconnell Archaeological Field School was set up with a vision for providing unforgettable archaeological experience in the unique Burren region. In partnership with the National University of Ireland in Galway we aim to provide the very best education as well as a cultural element which sees students interact with the people of the area daily.

We organize accommodation, meals, daily transport, weekend learning, on-site lectures and daily tuition. 

Amazing as this site is, it is far from the only archaeology of interest at Caherconnell.  Three other stone cahers or ringforts (at least one of which is earlier in date), a probable Late Bronze Age burial mound, two Bronze Age boulder burials, house sites of as yet unknown date, an ancient field system, and a prehistoric house are all part of the archaeological landscape found at Caherconnell.

Fees include the following: Tuition, Accommodation, Transport to and from the dig site daily and breakfast, lunch, dinner and breaks daily. 


More information on dates, fees and courses for 2016 can be found on our website:
