Mickayla's Journey to Ireland

Current Location

Cork, Ireland and Cahersiveen, Kerry, Ireland

I am studying at the University College Cork in Ireland for the spring semester! I will also be travelling around Europe during this time and I can't wait to share all my adventures with you!


This week, I attended classes as usual but, for the weekend, I was in the most southwest part of Ireland! If you want to see more pictures I've posted a full album of them for you to explore!


I had heard a number of stereotypes about the Irish before arriving to Ireland. In this journal, I will discuss the stereotypes of Ireland and how the Irish really behave, look and act. 

Field Notes

Storytelling is a tradition of many cultures and Ireland is no different. There are many stories that have been passed down from generation to generation. They tell of faeries, trolls, and more!


From February 9th to 11th, my group and I visited the Ring of Kerry, which is located in southwest Ireland, and got to learn about Céilí dancing, cows and lambs, and the landscape!
