I’ve gotten to meet and befriend people from all over the world which would be far less likely to happen in the US. I’ve also become much more independent since I’ve had to set up a life in a foreign country without my parents here to help. My time in Ireland has been the best of my life.

There is also a very sociable Archaeology society in UCD. I didn't get to attend all their events but they have medieval walking tours hosted by archaeological tutors, plus archaeology-themed movie nights, large-scale archaeology field trips, and guest speakers who are giants in this field.
