High School - Ireland, High School Abroad

A Collection of Memories from Ireland

I’ve climbed up into a thousand-year-old ruin of a castle and watched the sunset.  I’ve played capture the flag in an Irish forest with a bunch of teenagers.  I’ve hidden behind a pillow with a friend eating sweets while everyone else watches Nightmare on Elm Street.  I’ve walked along Tramore Beach taking photos and eating greasy chips from Dooley’s (ok, not so one-of-a-kind, but still a good memory).  I’ve danced the strangest dance you’ve ever seen to “Poker Face” with a French actor on stage.  I’ve played group bonding games with ten other exchange students in a random lot in Wexford County.  I’ve risked death crossing a rain-soaked street with a friend and some hilarious random stranger.  So many memories!… I’ve loved every minute of it.

  1. Hey, this seems like it was an amazing experience! I was wondering if it was a challenge with costs and everything. What grade in high school do you think would be the best to go?
