The Best Ways to Escape Dublin

The World of Trinity

By Sydne Tursky

Dublin is a great city. There are plenty of things to do, from festivals to great markets to the plethora of crazy university events that are always on. The sunsets from the bridges on the Liffey are gorgeous, and Irish people are just grand.

But … It has a few downfalls too, like any city does. It doesn’t always smell the best. On weekend mornings, the streets sometimes have drunken detritus from the night before. Crossing the street is hard because no one seems to be overly concerned with following the traffic rules. Dublin is still amazing, and I am still so glad I live here, but sometimes I need a break.

Sweet Sweet Study Abroad – Exploring Dublin’s Desserts

The World of Trinity

By Abigail Borges [Visiting Student Blogger]

Sometimes, school is hard. As a firm believer in the power of chocolate, one of the ways I like to get away from class, apart from exploring castles and cathedrals, is indulging a bit in the many sweet(s) opportunities around the city. Maybe you’ve been working hard on a paper all day and need a break, or just escaped a taxing exam, or maybe you’re waking up from a late night of studying and need a perfect pick-me-up. Really, whenever you need it, sweets will be there for you in Dublin, and here are some of the best (click the links and get ready to drool).

Eurotravel: How to see Europe from Dublin

The World of Trinity

By Céline Brandstötter [Visiting Student Blogger]

You will meet a lot of students on exchange who have plans to travel around Europe. People’s excitement to travel is contagious, so you will definitely also want to travel. However, student budgets are small and you will want to get the most out of your trips. Living in Ireland has many advantages and one of them is Ryanair, the low-cost Irish flight company that can bring you to almost every place in Europe, so definitely make sure to check out their website. For low-cost housing options, see Hostel World and Airbnb. I have listed my favourite European cities and what I enjoyed the most during my time visiting them.  Hopefully this gives you some tips on what to see, what to eat, and maybe inspire you to visit, too!

The Best Things About Dublin

The World of Trinity

By Sydne Tursky [Visiting Student Blogger]

As my time in Ireland dwindles down to a matter of days, I find myself ever more appreciative of Dublin. Though I have always loved this city and have been so happy to spend time here, I am realizing more and more how much I have taken it for granted. It has been the home to come back to after gallivanting through central Europe for a week; it has been my lively surroundings during many late-night walks back from the library or a pub; it has been host to many laughs and cries and laughs that turned into cries. But my life here has become a routine, and that means that sometimes I am oblivious to the most wonderful parts of Dublin.
