Language trip to Ireland

On Monday, 31st of March, we started our trip to Ireland. When the plane was ready to take off, we started to get nervous, because we all wanted to know what our host families would be like. When we finally arrived in Dublin late at night, a coach took us to our host families. 
On Tuesday morning we met at Luas station St. Stevens Green in the city center. Together we walked to the language school where we were split up into different groups according to our abilities. After a short introduction, we had our first class work. Besides playing some games, we talked about various topics like Ireland, movies or hacking. After school we had a short sightseeing trip through Dublin city and visited Ireland´s number one visitor attraction, the Guinness Storehouse. The Guinness Storehouse provided an unforgettable journey deep into the heart of the world famous Guinness brand and company. On the top of the building there was a panorama bar with breathtaking 360° views of Dublin city and beyond. 
On Wednesday we had school till half past three. After school we visited the National Gallery and in the evening we all went to Stillorgan`s leisure center and had a great time bowling.
On Thursday after school we spent our time shopping and hanging out at coffee shops. In the evening we learned to dance some Irish dances and listened to Irish music and singing. This evening was a lot of fun, but also very exhausting. 
On Friday, our last school day, we played again some conversation games and received our certificates. In the afternoon we made an interesting boat tour on the river Liffey through Dublin. Afterwards most of us went shopping again. 
On Saturday we drove by rail to Bray, a beautiful seaside resort near Dublin. We strolled along the famous Victorian promenade and walked up to the summit of Bray Head. Afterwards we went bowling and drank a cup of coffee or tea. In the evening we had dinner in a traditional Irish pub. The food was delicious and we enjoyed our day in Bray a lot. 
On Sunday we travelled to Glendalough, a glacial valley in County Wicklow, which is famous for its Early Medieval monastic settlement founded in the 6th century. We took a long walk through the valley, passed oak woodland and magnificent lakes. After the trip, we spent some relaxing time with our host families. 
On Monday morning we had to get up at 3am, because we had to fly back to Austria. At the airport we had to go through the usual security check before we got on our plane. Here we napped a little bit after this exhausting but awesome week. When we got off the plane in Munich, we were happy to have our warm and sunny weather back. 
It was an incredible week and we really enjoyed our time in Dublin.
