Dublin is Ireland’s capital and largest city, located on the country’s east coast.
Trinity College was founded in 1592 by England's Queen Elizabeth I. The school is Dublin's most prestigious and oldest college. The Library of Trinity College houses more than 4.5 million books, manuscripts, and maps, and is the largest in Ireland and the UK.
St. Stephen's Green
St. Stephen's Green is a city centre public park in Dublin, Ireland. The park is neighbor to one of Dublin's main shopping streets, Grafton Street. At 22 acres, it is the largest of the parks in Dublin's main Georgian squares.
Constructed in 1230 for King John of England, the Dublin Castle is a beautiful medieval structure. The Castle was built as a residence for the King and a place to protect the King's jewels.

Say that you decided to study abroad not for the Tinder possibilities in another country, but for the educational opportunities alone. In fact, just the opposite: you have a very serious relationship back home. Long-distance relationships aren’t always easy, but don’t despair!
When I first left to spend four months in Dublin, it seemed like an eternity. We had over one hundred days at the start. One hundred days sounds like an endless amount of time, and simultaneously no time at all. Of course, I knew the time would go fast, but this anxiety about trying to get the most out of my hundred days worked to my advantage.
So, to begin, I feel like it’s worth noting that if you’re the type of person to look up “What-To-Bring” lists, this probably wasn’t your first stop in determining what to bring and not to bring to Dublin. Having gotten that out of the way, this list is going to skip the basic stuff—you already know to bring socks and underwear and a nice camera for your study abroad semester.
The average day of classes in Dublin begins when my alarm goes off at 7:30 in the morning, (2:30 Eastern Standard Time) conveniently accompanied by the rising sun. Where I am housed, in Binary Hub, I’m lucky enough to have an East-facing window, which means that mornings involve a lot of squinting and rushing to shut the curtains before I change, but I am also afforded a lot of natural light.
