I admit it! Before Taking this course, I thought of the Irish as a group of people that throw outrageous parties, and lived on farms. Now that I have a better understanding of the Irish history, and culture I feel connected to the Irish on an emotional level even though we haven't even made it to the airport.
Through a long and brutal history, the Irish have fought hard to preserve their way of life and, to my astonishment, never lost hope.
In less than nine days, my classmates and I will be traveling to Dublin, Ireland to see the beautiful country we have read so much about.
Because I have a love of history, I am looking forward to visiting the many historic sites such as castles and monuments, and also the many museums. The National Museum of Ireland offers free admission to all four of its locations: Archeology, Decorative arts and History, Natural History, and Country Life.
