What Parents Say

It really meant a lot to me – MaryBeth

“I just wanted to THANK YOU and your team for all your help and extra effort/attention you gave to us and our son. With us leaving him prior to move-in , it really meant a lot to me… As ready as I know he is for college, it’s still not easy leaving him that far away. But from all the folks we’ve met at the university this past week and how helpful everyone was, I am confident he will be well taken care of if he should need help. Thanks again and I hope you had a smooth move-in day!   –    MaryBeth”


So, take a bow, from a grateful parent – Brenda

“Can I, as a parent, say a big ‘thank you’. I have noted the great organisational effort you have made to integrate the newcomers into Corrib Village and university life. No wonder you have such a good reputation and indeed, long waiting lists! Great activities are organised for the youngsters and I know my daughter is, all in all, having a great time there! We are both delighted with the accommodation. – Brenda”
