Global Engagement: Wexford, Ireland

Historical, attractive, lively and safe, Wexford Town and the surrounding Wexford County are about two hours by road or rail from Dublin. Due in part to almost two centuries of trade and emigration links between Wexford and the city of Savannah, Georgia Southern selected the location as its European study abroad and research campus. The Wexford campus offers many exciting opportunities for study and research. Experience the history, scenery and people of Ireland as you learn about the connections to Georgia’s own story, our region, and our role in the global community.
