Two Weeks in Ireland

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind!

First, we had an orientation in Dublin where we got to explore the city, make friends, and tour the Guinness Storehouse (pride and joy of Ireland)


After a few days we were off to our university for the semester, National University of Ireland, Galway. The apartment complex is beautiful (you can see a picture of the courtyard below), and we are about 20 minutes from Eyre Square — the main hub of Galway! We’ve spent a lot of time down here at restaurants, shops, and beautiful pubs.


One of my favorite things about the location of our apartment is that on the way to school, we pass a meadow with horses who are very used to people and love to be pet! You can also see a newborn baby foal beside its mother.


Also, there is a weekly farmer’s market every Saturday near Eyre Square, where we found an incredible doughnut baker. If you’re ever in Galway, you’re missing out if you don’t try a Boychik doughnut!
