By UL Student Leo Liu, MA International Tourism, class of 2005
I attended the course MA International Tourism, class of 2005. I lived in a neighborhood that I couldn’t even pronounce the name in the first place. However, this didn’t stop me learning, nor did it stop me making friends. I was able to study and enjoy myself at the same time.
I had three weeks work experiences at the end of the course in the beautiful Adare Manor hotel and golf course. What a wonderful experience! I had started my career in hospitably long before this, but this has nailed it.
What made me today, was not only the time I spent in UL but also the time I spent in Limerick city and Ireland with the Irish people. They taught me to be happy, hospitable and the positive attitude towards life. If I had the chance to choose, I would do it again without hesitation.
Go raibh maith agaibh!!
