Irish I never got on the plane to leave

Hello everyone, this is my last post for the trip. I can honestly say I have never been so sad about leaving a place. There are not enough words to describe how much fun I had on this trip learning new things everyday and continuously meeting new people. I was able to learn the similarities…

Present your final thoughts

As we wrap up our time in Dublin, we are assigned a company to present a PEST analysis on while showing how this company could relate to any major in the CBA school. Presenting can be a very nerve racking experience if one is not good at public speaking. Personally, I find that I am…

Episode 2: Plus3 reunion

Imagine this… 3 years have passed and the original Pitt Plus3 class travels back to Dublin to see the changes the city has. Ireland is a place that is constantly growing and changing. Within the past 10 years the docks are one area that has changed drastically. Many buildings were built that hold huge businesses…

Don’t touch the sheep 🚫🐑🚫

Today we had an amazing journey to the countryside again! The countryside is my absolute favorite part of Dublin because it is so green and so naturally beautiful. We were fortunate enough to walk through Kilkenny and see an amazing castle and cathedral. The streets of Kilkenny were full of little shops and many tourists….

EnterpriseCloud (did I get that right?)

Today was a long day filled with a lot of traveling and very interesting site visits. We started the day by taking a long bus ride to FoodCloud where we met John. John is a business development manager for FoodCloud Hubs. We started out in a small room listening to John talk about the gist…

Amaz(ing)on

After a long walk, and arriving at the wrong location, we were able to make our way to Amazon’s office in Dublin. My first impression of Amazon was, ‘this building is very clean and they seem to be hiding something.’ We were told immediately that we could not take photos of ANYTHING. Little do they…

Day 7: Looked for America at the cliffs and Ed in Galway

Today was one of the coolest days I have ever had. We were fortunate enough to cross the country and see the Cliffs of Moher and visit Galway. The Cliffs of Moher were breathtaking to say the least. There is no way to describe the cliffs and do it justice. One would have to just…

Day 6: Food makes you thick

One more day in the books and I still am amazed at everything this city has to offer. Today started out with class at Griffith then a few of us got lunch at cute little cafe called Noshington. Their desserts looked amazing, but my budget only allowed for me to have a sandwich. The sandwich…

Day 4: Newest team member for Dublin’s Hurling team

Today was one of my favorite days thus far in Ireland! We were fortunate enough to visit Croke park (Dublin’s main stadium). The stadium was much bigger than I ever expected it to be and I really did not want to leave. I could have sat there and asked questions all day if I got…

Day 3: Google, whisky, and Darren ❤️

Day 3 is in the books, and honestly I am more tired than ever. My feet are very swollen and my nap today was the best thing since sliced bread. We started the day very early with a tour of a whisky factory, Pearse Lyons. We had a guided tour of the graveyard and thechurch…

Day 2: Walk and Talk

After another long day, my jet lag has gotten better, but I am still very tired. We were fortunate enough to take a walking tour around Dublin. Our tour guide, Sylvie, took time out of her day to speak about Dublin’s most famous spots, and some of their historic history (below, I included some photos…

Day 1: Day fun

Hey everyone! After one day in Ireland, all I can say is I am tired, but extremely excited to learn more about this country! After a long day of traveling, we finally made it into Dublin safe. As a group, we were able to briefly explore the city by walking around with one of our…
