We made it! After a nice seven hour flight across the pond we arrived in Dublin at 7 AM ready to explore Ireland. The bus ride from the Dublin airport to the Heuston train station was a quick tour of the city. The architecture is amazing in Dublin with a mix of historic cobblestone and modern buildings. Before we left Dublin we were able to snap a few shots of the Guinness brewery, toothpick, and the train station.

We set off on another journey from Heuston train station to Cork exploring through the Irish countryside at 10 AM. Everything is green! We arrived at Cork around 1230 PM after our nice train ride. Some of us rested up for the night and a few of us explored Cork.
For the evening we took a short train ride to Cobh which was the last port call for the Titanic. We visited a cathedral with incredible architecture and detail. We were able to link up with the other study abroad group for dinner at Trade Winds which was great to have everyone in the same place! Finally we set back to Cork for a good night’s rest.

Headed to dinner in Cobh!
