The staff are exceptionally professional and go far beyond what one would expect of them.
When I first drove into the student town of Maynooth for an Open Day, I immediately realised that this was somewhere that I could call home. My three year experience at St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth has been superb. The greatest achievement of third level education is that it equips the student with the skills necessary to think for themselves. My experience of theology is that I have come to understand a lot about life itself, and the impact that religion, morality and history have had on life. Theology is not simply a religious education as one might expect when looking in from the outside, but facilitates the development of the person and our understanding of the world around us.
St. Patricks College is not only a beautiful place aesthetically, but internally it is home to a close knit community of staff and students. The staff are exceptionally professional and go far beyond what one would expect of them. If you choose Maynooth, I can say with confidence that you will leave a number of years later with a lump in your throat; and the town, the University and the people will hold a special place in your heart that will remain with you forever.
