Dublin 13-17 October 2019
Amazing, wonderful, incredible, fun, fabled, breath-taking…. are some of the adjectives the première Anglophones described their trip. Our trip was over 5 days and was an introduction on the Irish independence, the theme we are working on. We left on Sunday 13th and here are the activities we did during our stay.
Monday: Guinness Store House and the Criminal Courts of Justice
Tuesday: Trinity College, the Books of Kell, the GPO museum and Irish Dance Party
Wednesday: EPIC museum and Croke Park
Here are some words from some of the students.
“the group atmosphere was really great! We discovered a lot of new things, a new culture, traditions, like the Irish Dance Party! We clapped our hands and danced together!” Pauline, Marie, Guillaume and Charlotte.
“I enjoyed the Guinness Store House, though we were under age to taste it. We could say that it is an emblem of Ireland!’ Brune and Apolline
“The mock trial was really interesting, it was incredible to be in a court, playing the roles of judges and lawyers.” Marion
“I loved the mock trials and being in the court room was impressive!” Charlotte
“History is my favourite subject so naturally I enjoyed visiting Trinity College and the Books of Kell. We were in the midst of a busy students’ getting on with their lectures.” Abel
“The only visit that I didn’t appreciate was the GPO. The guide was quite boring even though the museum seemed fascinating. Perhaps, we have only started our project on the Irish Independence.” Pia
“We liked the Epic museum. The many interactive screens exposed us to the history of Irish emigrant.” Joanna.
“My favourite part was Croke Park because we learnt about Irish sports like hurling and Gaelic football. The museum was fun as we had hands on the different sports.” Louis
“I came back with a lot of wonderful memories of Dublin city and the fun moments I shared with my friends.” Alban.
