Achill Archaeological Field School is Ireland's oldest and most established Field School. We provide archaeology courses for all levels, from curious beginners to university students. We are located on Achill Island on Ireland’s spectacular Wild Atlantic Way

  • At the core of our program are our 2–12 week Accredited Excavation Courses which combine hands-on fieldwork with academic coursework. Our courses are accredited by the National University of Ireland, Galway, and we offer up to 9 Semester Credit Hours/18 ECTS per course.
  • Our very popular Trainee Supervisor Course provides a second tier of training for students who have completed at least one field school previously. This is an exciting course open to students who plan to make a career in archaeology.
  • Our Introductory and Survey Courses introduce participants to Irish archaeology and field methods in a practical way and can be taken by students and non-students alike.

We are delighted to offer a number of early bird offers for our 12, 8, and 6-week accredited courses. Offers are on a first-come-first-served basis!

In 2019 our training excavation will be based at the multi-period coastal site of
Caraun Point. The dig will focus on a deserted 18th century village, and associated complex of shell middens. The Caraun Point Project is a continuation of our research into historical vernacular settlement in the west of Ireland.
