“For the past few years, my experience in Ireland has been nothing short of wonderful. From driving along the Cliffs of Moher to hanging out with friends at the local pub, these memories were truly one of a kind. Among these memories, the best of them include studying at the Institute of Technology, Carlow.
To describe a few of the wondrous things at Carlow, the facilities within the college were top notch (especially the gym. It was better and cheaper than Celebrity Fitness), the lecturers were helpful and the community there was warm and friendly. It’s really easy to get along with them once you got to know them and joining a club or two really expands your circle of friends, so don’t be shy to get involve with the community over there. In terms of travelling around, Carlow is located in the centre of Ireland so travelling around was easy enough with the bus (it’s only an hour and a half from Dublin). There are certain things that you have to look out for though. For starters, it rains constantly over there and winds do get quite strong so it’s best to either get a water-proof jacket or a sturdy umbrella. Also when going out to the pub at night, always go with a friend just to stay safe.
