Please note the following important points in relation to international visitors booking on these field trips:

  1. You are responsible for arranging your own travel between the trips and the INQUA Congress in Dublin.
  2. The United Kingdom (UK) is a different country from Ireland and you may need to apply for a different visa to travel to the UK. You can check if you need a UK visa here: https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa
  3. You will need to buy your own travel insurance to cover you for any accidents, delayed flights, costs of missing the departure rendezvous etc.

Unfortunately, the following field trips have not secured enough bookings to be financially viable and have been cancelled. Participants have been contacted separately to arrange reimbursement. Please do not try to book onto these trips.
