I enjoyed taking courses that were relevant to the culture and their historical experiences.

The program provided great exposure to Irish culture and history both through group outings to Castles and live-music at pubs, and also by reading cases and discussing legal questions relevant to the Irish quest for Independence and subsequent separatist movements.

Make sure you have rain wear and get up to Belfast if you've got the chance. Seeing the Catholic/Protestant interaction in the flesh is an extremely enlightening experience.
