In June, 46 pupils packed their suitcases and made their way to Ireland to explore the country and to improve their English skills. Their journey started with a week in Ireland’s capital – Dublin – where they stayed with host families and attended a course at a language school.

The stay in Dublin included, of course, visits to famous sights (Molly Malone statue, Trinity College, the Spire, Guinness Storehouse, Kilmainham Gaol) and an Irish-dancing afternoon.

After 7 days of studying the English language in the capital, they went to the west coast of Ireland where they could enjoy the beauties of nature when visiting the famous Cliffs of Moher and the national park area (including a stay at Glengowla Mines where they were welcomed by cute puppies, went deep into a mine and could experience a sheep dog herding demonstration and turf cutting). They had a nice stop at Kylemore Abbey and got wonderful views during the coach trip.

For sure, “Ireland is worth a visit”.
