My experience in Ireland was absolutely amazing, and exceeded all of my expectations. One company visit that was very memorable was the Musical Pub Crawl, where we listened to musicians play traditional Irish music, with great passion and soul in their work. We followed them to a second pub, where we clapped along to the music and sang with them. This tradition is one of the ways that they keep the history of their culture alive, and they were very excited to share it with us, just as we were to learn about it. They are very welcoming people, and although we were all the way across the globe, they made us feel right at home. I will never forget the incredible experience I had in Ireland, and am very thankful to have had this opportunity!
