Limerick, Ireland alumna Andrea recently reviewed her program on GoAbroad and we loved reading about her experience. Why should you review your program? Reviews help interested students learn more about our programs firsthand from someone who has participated. Share your advice and recommendations, and help more student go abroad! When you complete a review you will answer questions like these:
What’s one thing you wish you had done differently?
I wish I would have stayed for a year and not just a semester.
What was a day in the life of your program like?
A day in the life would be waking up, eating breakfast in a kitchen shared with my roommates, going to classes, hanging out with friends I made, and going to university events or practice for rowing/horseback riding depending on the day. There were some weekends where I stayed on campus and did things around Limerick, but I was often travelling during the weekends.
What was your favorite activity outside the normal program scheduling?
I absolutely loved going to the Aran Islands. They are these rustic islands off the coast of Dingle. We went to the smallest one (a population of 300) where we toured the town and went to the beach, and saw some really charming landscapes and met some very friendly people.
What were your accommodations like in Limerick?
I lived in an townhouse style dorm. There were eight individual bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen/common area. I really like the people I shared the house with – I lived with an American boy, a girl from France, another girl from New Zealand, and four Irish boys.
