Find the best field school for you!


The Irish Archaeology Field School provides a wide range of expert led research-focused programs designed to introduce students to practical archaeological field methods, and to build and expand on knowledge and experience gained in the classroom.

Our field schools are ideal for students of anthropology, archaeology, history, medieval studies, bioarchaeology, forensic anthropology, geography, environmental science, Irish studies and community archaeology.

Our students may earn transferable university credits towards their undergraduate degree, through our academic partners at the Institute for Field Research and Maynooth University Ireland. We also offer non-accredited program options.

Below is a list of our programs which are now open for registration, including our internships, for 2024. Further detail on each program is contained within the individual program page.

Please note: tuition fees for programs run through our partner organisation the Institute for Field Research must be paid directly to that organisation.
