Our Global Ambassadors here at Trinity hail from a range of countries: from Brazil and the US to India and Hong Kong. They have co-written a blog post about the top things they love about living in Dublin and Ireland.
Dublin is an extremely student-friendly and international city. Every time I walk around I hear at least one different language other than English, and that makes me feel even more connected to it. In Dublin you also get the best of both worlds, as the city offers everything you would expect from a capital city, but it is much smaller than other urban centres. In a way, you have the same opportunities just not as much chaos! As a literature student, I love “getting lost” in the narrow streets of Dublin. Whenever a new semester begins I go on a hunt for cheap books. My favourite shops are The Secret Book and Record Shop, Chapters and Oxfam.

Dublin is booming as an international hub. I love wandering around Grand Canal Docks where all the multi-national companies like Facebook and Google are located. Combined with the gorgeous Bord Gáis Theatre, it feels like you’re in a more futuristic setting and the opportunities are endless.
