Study a Broad in Dublin! July 17, 2014

By (University of Minnesota) - abroad from 05/16/2014 to 07/11/2014 with

American College Dublin: Irish Language & Culture Program

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
ACD is a great place to spend a few weeks in the summer. The program allows you to live in the center of Dublin and experience the city like you couldn't otherwise. Night life is phenomenal, and the country is small enough to have every significant sight within a short bus ride at most. I would recommend this program to absolutely anyone.
