Dublin 2013

Blizzards, legends and leprechauns … that’s how classes 3AK and 3BK experienced Dublin.


From 11th to 18th March 2013, 30 students from classes 3AK and 3BK spent a grand time in Dublin accompanied by their form teachers Mag. Christa Prichenfried and Mag. Irene Holawe.

However, already at our arrival at the meeting point, where we got acquainted with our Irish host families, we asked ourselves whether we had landed in Antarctica or Greenland, since it was freezing cold with an icy snowstorm blowing.  Luckily, seasons change quickly on the Emerald Isle, famous for its million shades of green, and so sunshine took the upper hand with freezing temperatures and occasional rain showers remaining throughout the entire week.  Nevertheless, everyone was highly motivated for the English classes at the Dublin School of English (DSE), situated in the very heart of the Irish capital city, and the well-organised afternoon programme, where native Irish guides, teaching at DSE, familiarized us with Irish history and culture. Of course, apart from visits to Trinity College, Christ Church Cathedral and other sights of Dublin, our programme also included tours of the Old Jameson Whiskey Distillery and the Guinness Storehouse, as well as evenings at the traditional greyhound races and the IMAX cinema. On our full-day excursion to Kilkenny, the students could get some impressions of the beautiful Irish countryside. In Kilkenny we visited Kilkenny castle and were shown around the historical city centre. However, the real Dublin highlight was the parade on Saint Patrick’s Day. Most of us dressed up in green before mingling with the huge crowd of international participants and spectators.

Finally, I should like to thank my colleague Mag. Prichenfried for her great support and the students for their punctuality, dependability and good mood in spite of the not-so-friendly weather!
