Student Experiences

Hear from some of our past and current boarders:

“My stay in Midleton College as a boarder was one of the best decisions I made in my life. I met so many wonderful people I can now call my brothers and sisters. Midleton College is a family that once you are part of it, you are part of it for life!” (Sarah, Form 6).

“I had never lived away from home so I was very nervous about coming to Ireland. When I got to Midleton College, my nerves disappeared. Everyone was so friendly, and I had the best year of my life. I made friends from all over the world, and I speak English with a Cork accent now! (Bruno, Form 5).

“My favorite weekend trip was to Charlesfort in Kinsale. We took a tour of the base which was fascinating, and we also got to spend time exploring the town, which was really pretty. I also loved our trip to Spike Island where we got to drive boats around the docks ourselves!” (Carolina, TY).

“Boarding at Midleton College was an experience that I will never forget. I got to try out so many different sports and activities and also make some of the best friends ever. I know we’ll stay in contact for life. It was my second home for 6 years.” (Rachel, Form 6).
