Hello future ILEers, concerned parents, and anyone else who may be reading this! I would just like to tell you a little bit about my time spent on the Irish Life Experience.
First of all, it is one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. Period. At first I was a little hesitant about going away for a month with people I had never met before and to a country that I had never been to before. Worries I had were quickly swept away. The ILE Staff was very welcoming and eager to get to know all of us that would be embarking on this new journey. We all got to know each other and quickly became a close knit group. I will forever cherish the relationships I have made with every one of my newly made friends. They have become like family to me and I wouldn’t have wanted to spend my time in Ireland with any other group of people. As we toured across the country, I quickly began to fall in love with the land and people of Ireland. Before attending the ILE, I didn’t really have much enthusiasm for my Irish heritage. I thought it was cool that my family came from Ireland, but that was about it. Now I can boldly say that I am proud to be Irish. I have such a greater appreciation for my heritage and the place my family comes from. I learned so much about the history and culture of Ireland. From castles to scones, we covered it all.
I would highly recommend this trip for anyone that is interested in learning more about their Irish heritage or Ireland in general. It will not be an investment that you will regret, but one that you will be forever grateful for as I am!Share It!
