Overall Experience
It sounds obvious, but I definitely learned how to adapt to new situations. The smallest things that you don't expect to be different are, from the way public transport works to how Irish dairy products taste, but you learn to love them in their own way (sometimes more than what you'd been used to). I'm also even more independen... - Pennsylvania State University - University Park / Penn State View Entire Review
Past Review Irish Immersion
I absolutely loved studying abroad in Dublin, Ireland and I wish I could have stayed the entire year! My favorite part about the experience was being directly enrolled into Trinity College and enjoying all of the academic (like the Book of Kells!) and social resources provided by the campus. The program allowed me to immerse mys... - Occidental College View Entire Review

I gained a new perspective on the world, more knowledge in my field of study, and wonderful friendships. It was worthwhile, of course! - George Washington University View Entire Review

Studying abroad was definitely worthwhile. I learned so much not only culturally, but academically. It was an amazing experience that I would never trade. - Purdue Honors College - Purdue University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself and what I am capable of. It was much more rewarding for me personally, but it also had some academic reward as well! - Hope College View Entire Review
I experienced life truly away from home for the first time, and was able to completely immerse myself in another culture. I appreciate everything about Ireland that I learned there, from the rules of Gaelic football to James Joyce's biography. Trinity wasn't the best experience academically (and the administration was a nightm... - Indiana University - Bloomington View Entire Review

I gained the ability to live independently and make friends, making a home essentially starting from scratch in a new country. It was very, very worthwhile. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Dublin - Study Abroad at Trinity College Dublin
Naturally, I learned so much about Ireland and, surprisingly, found a new appreciation for American culture. I made life-long American friends in the IES program as well as locals and international students at Trinity. Being thrown into a new city where I knew no one was a character-building experience. I have become much more c... - University of Rochester View Entire Review

My experience abroad was definitely worthwhile. I learned so much about Irish culture and history and really enjoyed getting fully involved in the Trinity College community through joining the ultimate frisbee team. I was able to take classes with local and other international students and travel with them all over Ireland. The ... - Knox College View Entire Review
Past Review A New Home
I learned that I was capable of taking care of myself in another country. I can read maps and figure out train/bus/flight schedules. I can get through airport security. I can be independent. - Anonymous University View Entire Review
Now that I am back, I have no regrets about studying in Dublin. I am much more willing to try new things now and to find out what is going on in my community. Studying abroad forced me to seek out and try new experiences and I am not going to let that habit die. I am also more confident advocating for myself now. I have moved to... - University of Rochester View Entire Review
I learned so much about myself, what it means to travel, and about Ireland. I had an amazing experience, and I would go back in a heartbeat. - University of Rochester View Entire Review
Past Review Best Time
Absolutely worthwhile. Learned a lot about a new country- politics, economics, culture. Got a lot better at meeting new people and making friends. Forces you to go with the flow. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Studying abroad took me far out of my comfort zone and proved to me that I am capable of far more than I ever thought. I learned to embrace the unexpected and to find something special in every day. I am far more flexible and spontaneous now, and definitely more independent. Studying abroad was one of the best decisions I ever m... - University of Virginia View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the relationship between Ireland and America. It was extremely worthwhile. Like many others on the program, I have Irish heritage but it is extremely important to remember that your experience and imagination of what Irish people are like is probably not right if you're basing it off of your own family and ... - Fordham University View Entire Review
Past Review Best Semester
I became more independent and open to new experiences. I met a lot of great people who I wouldn't have met any other way. The English department at Trinity focuses more on modern literature than the English department at my home school, so I read a lot of texts I'd never been exposed to. It was an incredibly worthwhile experienc... - Washington University in Saint Louis View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IES Abroad: Dublin - Trinity College Dublin Honors Program
There are no words to describe what this experience means to me. It exceeded my expectations in every way and was truly the best decision I have made so far in my life. I will forever look at the world differently because of my experience. Equally important, I learned a lot about myself. I'll never forget my days in Dublin a... - University of Rochester View Entire Review

About

You won’t need the luck of the Irish to have an unforgettable study abroad experience in Dublin. By directly enrolling at Trinity College Dublin (TCD), you’ll have the joy of befriending the Irish, who are known for their hospitality. You’ll feel more at home knowing that Dublin has a young population (more than half of the city is under 25).

Trinity College Dublin offers a wide variety of challenging courses and appeals primarily to those students who are ready for the challenge of adapting to an entirely new academic culture that requires significant independent work.

Dublin will also be your classroom. Take in an Irish play at Abbey Theatre, the country’s national theater. Learn about Dublin’s history by exploring Dublin Castle which was built in 1204. Visit Trinity College Dublin to see The 7th Century Book of Kells, a masterful example of an illuminated manuscript, that is housed in its own climate controlled archive in the university’s old library. Welcome to study abroad!
