Personal comments:
The University was beautiful. The architecture was so detailed and our surroundings were surreal. My experience as a student and an independent traveler were hiehgtened due the location and the historical significance of Trinity University. With the Book of Kells exhibition being on campus and the campus being in a prime location of Dublin, a perfect mix of adventure and education was at our fingertips.

Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students interact with the local community without much university involvement
Travel: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Activities, Nightlife: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
On campus at Trinity the PAV, short for the Pavillion, was a great place to catch sports games and sit outside on the hill for relaxing evening of socializing. In the city the Quey was a good place to go for a good Guiness. The best place in my opinion was called Whole in the Wall and that is exactly what it was. Great place to mingle with the locals and really soak up the experience. In Galway, Ireland The Quey was also the place to be and a great meeting location to start off the night.

We did our own idependent traveling where most of my funds were spent. Bike rentals, tours, and outdoor adventures were what accounted for most of my expenses.
Travel, Nightlife, Overall: was more expensive than at home.
Food, Telephone: was the same price as at home.
Housing: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
If you have a place to stay with a fridge, groceries are definiety the way to go. Sandwiches are great and easy on the wallet. When your on the go, snacks are great and pizza was always around the corner somewhere. Also, although many of the guided tours were helpful and interesting I felt it was more fun and less expensive to go out and find landmarks, and monuments on your own or with a friend.
