Hi guys,

I just got the news that I have the opportunity to go on a three-months exchange to Ireland next year. I'm over-excited. I had to share this

I'm going to study at the Mater Dei College in Dublin. Maybe some of you guys are from Ireland and you can give me some tips? Or maybe you have a great exchange story of your own? Or maybe a less great story .

Tell me all about it!!!

*jumps around*
still excited

Cool, Dublin's a great place to go for a student. Very multicultural and loads of things to do. I didn't even realise there was more to it than the city because that's big enough, but it's huge. What are you going to study there? Do you know where in Dublin the college is? I haven't heard of it.

I've only been to Dublin a few times myself (despite the fact that I live 2 hours drive away, I'm from Northern Ireland) and it's a great city. Looking back on it now it was just a really active city, there's always something to do or somewhere to go. The only thing to make sure of is look where you're going walking down the streets as people will try to walk through you. Same thing when crossing the roads. Beware of cars.

thanks for the quick response, Dublin really sounds like a great city!
I'm going to study religion and history, I also study English here in Belgium, so I will also be practising my English of course...

Ow yeah, edit: your signature is HILARIOUS, I laughed for about 5 minutes and there were tears involved


Maybe some more practical questions:
Is it expensive? I mean the food, accomodation, that kind of stuff...
Maybe things I really should know about Irish people and their habbits ?
....

That sounds really exciting, I'm happy for you that you'll get this opportunity. I think it's great to be able to study in another country.

I've never been to Ireland but I've heard it's a very beautiful country. The only thing I think about when I hear "Dublin" is U2! Yeah, I know I'm obsessed

That sounds like a great chance, so congratulations!!!
I went to Ireland some years ago in exchange. I stayed with a host family for one month and it was one of the better periods of my life.
Ireland is a beautiful country and you will find Irish people are so kind and warm... I must confess I didn┤t want to come back home.
I hope you will enjoy your experience!!
