Carmen's Erasmus Experience in Limerick, Ireland

Why did you choose to go to Limerick, Irlanda?

Because I wanted to live in a place where they spoke English and I really like Ireland, even though I'd never been before.


How long is the scholarship? How much money do you receive to help you with living costs?

9 months, from September to May/June. As for money, I'm not sure because there are a lot of changes happening with Erasmus scholarships and such. For now I have been given 1, 305 euros from the European Union.

What is the student lifestyle like in Limerick?

It's great. There are lots of Erasmus students and lots of international students who are all nice.

Would you recommend the city and University of Limerick to other students?

Yes, of course.

What is the food like?

Well, I haven't gotten used to it yet, because it's all fat and all fast food. There's nothing like Spanish food.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Limerick?

No, because I booked an off-campus residence called Courtyard Student Village.


How much does it cost to live in Limerick?

I'm not sure exactly, but Ireland is in general more expensive; it is more expensive than Spain.

Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the university?

The language is good, although sometimes I get "caught" with some things. I didn't go to any course. I study English Literature.

What is the easiest way to get to Limerick from your city?

Aeroplane and bus.

Where would you recommend to go on a night out in Limerick?

Stables, and Stables.

And for eating? Can you recommend some good restaurants in Limerick?

Mmmm, I don't know. Subways, McDonald's, Paddocks (which is at the university), Milk Market (at the weekends)....

What good cultural sites are there to visit?

Go to King John's Castle.


What advice would you give to future students in Limerick?

Enjoy Erasmus as much as possible.
