This video will show you a walking tour of Galway. The video starts out in the Charlie Bryne Bookshop, which is said to be Ireland’s best-loved independent bookshop. The tour continues on to show scenic waterfront views near the National University of Ireland Galway campus. Shop Street is featured in the video where you can find musicians playing, flowers being sold on the street, and popular cafes and restaurants. Two of my favorite cafes are the Lane Cafe and Griffin’s which are great to go to for coffee…

Since living in Galway, I have fallen in love with the city. When the weather is nice in Galway, one of my favorite things to do is take a walk on the Salthill Promenade. The walk takes you alongside Galway Bay, and offers an incredible view at sunset. One of the best day trips is to Kylemore Abbey and the Victorian Gardens. This tour includes several other stops on the way including a stop in the colorful Spiddal Craft Village. Beyond being breathtakingly beautiful, Kylemore Abbey has a…

Leaving Ireland and returning to my last semester at my home university is one of the most bittersweet things I have ever had to go through. Dublin has become my home in the past three months, and I have loved every minute of my time here. Looking back on my time in Ireland, I would not change anything for the world. I have explored almost every part of Ireland, and met so many amazing people from Ireland, and all around the world. I may have been one of…

What does Ireland have to do with Strategic Communications? Well actually, a lot! Ireland has some pretty big surprises when it comes to tech and media. In my video I discuss the reasons why I chose to come to Dublin, Ireland while studying Strategic Communications and how awesome it has been!

Sure, a city can look amazing on Google or Trip Advisor… but we all know those pictures are edited to perfection; a sometimes unrealistic perfection. It’s hard to really gauge how a city is without being there, so I took a bunch of short, un-edited video clips to help show how Dublin, Ireland really is.  Oh, and let me tell you… it’s pretty sweet.

“So… why did you choose Ireland?” This is a question I’ve gotten multiple times from friends and family back in the U.S.  They just couldn’t imagine that I’d want to go somewhere cold during the Winter season. However, coming to Dublin, Ireland was a non-question for me and here’s why: I knew I wanted to study abroad, but the options were tight because my major (Strategic Communications, Social Media) is so specific. After looking around, CEA Dublin seemed like a perfect fit. If you have read any of…

Ireland has a rich history of music and it has had a great impact on the culture, but where does that leave music now? In my video I discuss why Dublin, Ireland has great potential to be a flourishing music scene, but is in a very interesting position.

study abroad in Ireland, study abroad in Dubmin, study abroad in Galway, Galway, Dublin, Ireland, What's the Crack, What's the Craic

Walking around Dublin, Galway or really any part of the Emerald Isle, you’re bound to hear the phrase that sounds like, “what’s the crack?” in a charming Irish accent. Yes, that is indeed what they are saying, but contrary to the American’s phonetic ear, the phrase is actually, “what’s the craic?” Everyone seems to be having or looking for the craic, this simply means they want a good time or are sincerely wondering what the goings on are in their group of friends. Craic is regional slang to…

Deciding to Intern and Study Abroad came late to me in my college career. Once realizing I was about to graduate a semester early, I found an opportunity through CEA to intern abroad and gain global internship experience. This is pretty atypical at my school, to leave the country for a semester in your Senior year to intern in a place you’ve never even visited. But, I love my placement in Ireland, and I stand by my decision to intern abroad during my last year of college. Here’s…
