Every year, a group of lucky Rosary students pack their bags and head over to Europe for their spring break. Destinations include Italy, Spain, and France, and this year it was Ireland and England.
The girls departed to the UK Thursday March 21, spent 4 days there, soaking in the major sights: Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, London Bridge and Covent Gardens.

After a difficult goodbye, the next stop was Ireland. The first destination was in the beautiful countryside of Killarney. Unlike the go-go-go of London, in Killarney, the atmosphere was relaxed, as the girls drove to the castles and ruins of ancient Ireland, including Blarney Castle and Bunratty Castle.
Last stop: Dublin. Here, the girls really got to explore the city to their heart’s content. From visiting Trinity College to catching a glimpse of the Book of Kells and exploring St. Patrick’s Cathedral,  Dublin was really a blast.

Now to hear from some Royals on what their favorite part was.
Natalie Ruiz ‘19 exclaims, “I actually liked Ireland more than I thought! Killarney’s country views and Dublin’s city life was a nice balance. I loved the sheep show where they showed us how a Border Collie herds sheep. At Dublin, we saw the Book of Kells at Trinity College. Overall, I really enjoyed the laid-back experience in Ireland.”

Alexandra Samawi ‘19 includes, “I really liked our tour guide, Dominic. He was really upbeat, and he organized all of our activities perfectly. Our engaging bus rides with Dominic really made my mornings!”
Alena Adamsen ‘19 says, “This trip helped me grow as a person and get closer to my Rosary sisters. I really enjoyed England because of the British National Museum and Westminster Abbey.”
We hope to see you on the trip to Italy next spring!
