Maynooth University Summer Abroad

To say that my time studying at Maynooth was the best thing I have ever done thus far in my life, would be an understatement. I have always been interested in travel, adventure and the exotics of different cultures. Maynooth University provided me with all of the above, and so much more! I got the chance to learn so much about my field in business from a global perspective, while also sinking myself into the rich Irish culture. From the visit to the surreal views of The Cliffs of Moher and the fresh feel of the Atlantic Ocean in Galway, there was never a dull moment, with such beautiful sights to see and delicious food to feast Irish tip, ALWAYS order the Guinness and Beef stew... You won’t regret it! Along my unforgettable journey I got to share it with other students from all around the world who I still call my best friends up to this day! Definitely a trip to remember and an experience of a lifetime.

What was your funniest moment?
The funniest moment was when I was eating ice cream with my friends and we decided to sit up on a grassy cliff that had stairs leading up to it. As I got to the top of the stairs I fell flat on my face and then a birds came to eat my ice cream! Luckily the ice cream shop gave me another scoop!

Amazing Summer in Maynooth!

Getting to spend 4 weeks in Maynooth was one of the most amazing trips of my life! I got to experience normal college life in Ireland, learn about the culture, and take several amazing trips to different scenic locations across Ireland! Going to the store and seeing all the different options was an adventure by itself, let alone going to visit beautiful historic sites, such as Clonmacnoise. My all time favorite place we got to visit was Giant’s Causeway and seeing the gorgeous cliffs and the Columnar Rejointing! I even got to taste the ocean (much to my friend’s amusement)!

What would you improve about this program?
If I could change anything, it would be having more activities revolting around the culture. Some of my favorite trips were onyl available to me because I choose the course they were offered by, so most of the other program members did not get to exerience them. I would have loved optional courses on Irish language, and more about their history and culture.
