What's it like to explore a new city for the summer? Clare takes her camera out to document her first 24 hours around Dublin. There's nothing like taking in a new environment with fresh eyes, so take a look at this photo tour!

Arriving and traveling in Dublin was a breeze. I got to view the beautiful city on the way to my apartment.

My apartment* in Dublin is in the old medieval sector of Dublin. You can see the history all around you in this area.

*Students in CAPA Dublin Summer programs live in apartments, but semester programs live in student housing on the Griffith College Campus.

After arriving, I had to get a SIM Card for my phone and got to explore the shopping area in downtown Dublin.

The walk to campus at Griffith College allowed me to see more of the city and I got to meet more people from the CAPA Dublin Program.
