7ABC goes IRELAND (2 - 8 April 2017)

E-Mail Drucken PDF

2 April: Steyr - Munich - Dublin - Galway

After a very early trip to Munich and an "aerial sightseeing" flight to Dublin, our pleasant bus driver Clinton took us to photogenic sheep and Galway, where we checked in at our youth hostel Snoozles. Then we ventured on a walk to the inner city to find street music and something to eat and drink. (Lena, Katja)

3 April: Connemara, Kylemore Abbey, Galway

After a short night we started our journey to Kylemore Abbey in Connemara. Even though we got drenched the two minutes we were outside, the stormy weather did not stop our spirits. We visited the interesting castle, the gothic church and some of us went to the mausoleum and even for a walk in the beautiful Victorian walled gardens. Back in Galway some sporty girls proved their bowling talents. Later that evening lots of us played games or sang songs in the hostel lounge. (Lena, Katja)

4 April: Dunguaire Castle, Cliffs of Moher, Bunratty Castle, Killarney

After a short stop at the cute and small Dunguaire Castle we went for the Cliffs of Moher. The first impressions were mesmerizing and the view was stunning and definitely fascinated all of us. At Bunratty Castle we had a guided tour and enjoyed the medieval folk park. Then it was time to head to our final destination for the day: Killarney, in the South of Ireland. (Linda, Matthias)

5 April: Kenmare, Caha Mountains, Cork, Dublin

We left Killarney at 8.20 am and headed to the tricky Caha Mountains, where even Clinton, our bus driver, was afraid of getting stuck in the tunnels. Luckily that did not happen and so we could enjoy a great view over the landscape. In Glenara (An Glean Garbh) we stopped for a nice walk to the sea and we even spotted two seals in the water. Three hours later we visited the English Markets in Cork to strengthen ourselves with drinks and food. Finally we were excited to get to Dublin, where we were picked up in pairs by our host families.

6 April: Dublin

After the first night at our host families in the south of Dublin (Knocklyon) we got to know the Irish school life at Atlas Language School. We learnt a lot about Irish food and drinks as well as about some famous Irishmen. After school we had a guided sightseeing tour through Dublin. We visited the parliament and the castle, Trinity College and the Spire, which is a big needle-like sculpure in O'Connell Street that not even the Irish people like because it was a waste of money. We heard a lot about the interesting Irish history and finished the day with a nice dinner with the host families. (Lukas, Alexander)

7 April: Dublin

Today we were talking with Italian students at the Atlas Language School. It was quite fun as no one really knew what we should talk about, but in the end it worked out somehow.
In the afternoon we had a guided tour through Croke Park Stadium and the Gaelic Athletic Association Museum, where we found out about the local sports - Gaelic Football and Hurling. These are typically Irish and not as money-influenced as international sports. Athletes are not paid for playing, but commit a lot of their free time to the regular practice. That is because Gaelic Football and Hurling are so called "amateur sports" and do not aquire professional players, but normal people who can play for their birth place only. Sometimes even concerts (e.g. U2, Coldplay, Springsteen, Sheeran) take place in there. Fortunately the weather did not turn against us at all. We were able to spend a pretty nice and sunny evening in Dublin, where we had the chance to go on one last shopping spree before we headed back home to Austria the following day after school.
