Final Blog Post: Goodbye Ireland

Sadly, our trip to Ireland has come to an end and I am currently typing this from my kitchen table in Glenshaw, Pennsylvania. When looking back at the past few weeks, I know I will always remember this trip and be able to look back on it my whole life. I’m thankful that I had…

Would you Invest in Ireland?

I can’t believe our trip to Dublin, Ireland is almost over and we’ll be heading to the airport tomorrow morning. Yesterday after presenting our final group projects, we had Raymond Bowe give a guest lecture to our class. Raymond Bowe has been working for Industrial Development Authority (IDA) for 30 years and told us all…

“Imposter Syndrome”

On our site visit today with Workday. It is an ERP system for finance, human resources, and planning. We heard one of the workers mention imposter syndrome, which we also heard one of the workers at Google mention. The imposter syndrome is a psychological term referring to a pattern of behavior where people doubt themselves…

The Docklands

Today was a very action packed day in Dublin. We had breakfast at chorus cafe, walked over to Trinity College, met with Dr. Darren Kelly, a college professor, and then ended with a site visit to the Google European Headquarters. Something that stood out to me was the things Dr. Kelly had said. He shared…

Making my way around Dublin

Today, our group took a trip to Howth, which is a small fishing town. We got lunch there, looked around the market, and explored around the area for a bit. It had beautiful views of the sea and we even spotted a few seals. There’s also a mountain hike trail there that we didn’t have…

I want to see Moher of Ireland!

Today was my favorite day so far during this study abroad trip in Ireland. We spent time visiting the Cliffs of Moher and Galway. You could tell these places were very touristy by the amount of people walking around the areas. On the Ireland tourism site, it shows the different places tourists can visit and…

Eaton Corp. & Innovation

Day three of being in Dublin and the site visit we had today was Eaton Corporation Inc. Eaton Corporation is a power company founded in the United States with the corporate headquarters being in Dublin. During our visit, we split into groups and came up with examples of how artificial intelligence could play a role…

StayCity

It is already day two of our trip in Dublin and I feel like we have done so much already. When going to multiple site visits, we do a lot of walking and traveling on the bus transportation so we have seen a good amount of the Dublin area already. After the past few days,…

Finally in Dublin! (but jet-lagged)

After a two hour delayed flight, we finally made it to Dublin after spending a couple days in Charlotte due to a previously cancelled flight. The flight flew over night and we landed in Dublin around 9 am, while barely getting any sleep. After checking into our apartments that we’re staying in, we changed into…

Breakout of Charlotte

As the Plus3 Ireland group has been delayed in Charlotte for the past couple days, we have been looking for different stuff to do around here while awaiting our flight to Dublin. Last night, we decided to do escape rooms, which is something I have never had the chance to do before. We split up…

Slight Delay to Dublin

Saturday night, the Plus3 Ireland group was getting all ready to board our second flight towards our final destination. As it was storming in Charlotte, North Carolina, flights around us kept getting cancelled and delayed, ours eventually being one of them. Our flight kept getting pushed back until as late as 11:45 pm, only to…
