My overall impression of our time there can’t be expressed in words but must be experienced in person so make sure you visit Ireland if you get a chance.
Getting to see historical Dublin was an amazing experience.
I stood at the Cliffs of Moher, looking out in the endless expanse of Atlantic. Somewhere on the other shore my pervious semester faded into the horizon. My head spun in a way unique to those who have left something fantastic only to find more excitement and far more life than they could have imagined.
In the end I spent the last eight and a half weeks, or 59 days, or 1,416 hours in Ireland and the one thing I can say with absolute certainty is that I do not regret one moment of my time.
The way that the summer program is set up, is perfect for those who are looking to explore the country, while earning some extra college credits.
Getting the chance to study in Ireland was a dream come true. I had dreamed about doing so since the first time I had visited the country when I was 11 years old.
I spent six weeks at American College Dublin this past summer and it was the trip of a lifetime. Dublin is a much underrated city which offers much in the ways of culture and general experience.

Dublin is an incredible city which is just bursting with energy. The nightlife there is unlike anything we have in America, and it is a very exciting place to be any night of the week
The small class sizes and the dedicated professors made the classroom a very fun and enthusiastic atmosphere.
When I look back on my time spent at ACD in Dublin I remember two things vividly: crying when I left to go to Ireland, and crying even harder when I had to leave to come home.
It’s a strange thing to be homesick for a place that was never technically your “home” but after 4 months in Ireland, it feels just as much home to me, as the house I grew up in.
