We had to get up quite early in the morning. Our trip to the
Berlin-airport started at about 6 o´clock. After we have had
breakfast our airplane made the way to Dublin at 11:20am.
After arriving in Ireland we went by taxi to our hotel in Leixlip.
The Irish students were welcoming us in the lobby of the hotel,
that was really lovely. We had lunch in the hotel-restaurant/-bar
and got our hotel rooms. When the Italian, Spanish students
arrived (at the hotel) we made a trip to Dublin downtown and
there the Swedish students also joined our group. After a bit of
sightseeing and shopping (the Irish were nice guides :)) we had
dinner in a Chinese restaurant (which is called “Jimmy Chung
´s“). After enjoying the meal and having some nice
conversations with the other students we happily went back to
our (very nice) hotel in Leixlip.
After a very nice breakfast (some students tried the typical Irish
breakfast) we made our way to the Dalkey Castle and had a funny
tour through the museum. On the top of the building we had a nice
view over the surrounding but it was also very windy. Afterwards we
went to a little, cute restaurant where we had hot soup and some nice
sandwiches. There the Irish students gave their prepared lovely cake
to Gregorio! Everyone was singing for him and enjoying this break.
Now we went on with our „Ireland trip“. Our next stop was the Heritage
centre where we watched a movie about their history. Everyone
wanted to get some fresh air so we went on a walk. There was a cold
wind and some rain, so we were lucky to go back into the bus. Back
in the hotel we had a very good 3 course menu and so we went to
bed and slept very well.
We had a very nice breakfast in the hotel and after that we
went to the school for the first time. All the students
presented their work and showed the others what they had
done in their home-countries. Then we had a nice lunch
which was prepared and cooked by the Irish students.
Finally we went to Dublin by the city bus for seeing the city
and shopping souvenirs. In the evening we had some
orientation problems but eventually we found the Irish
pub. After we had a nice dinner, some students were not
afraid to try Irish dancing. This was a great evening with
In the morning (after breakfast) we went by bus to school. We kept on
working on the different topics of our project. For lunch we went all
together into a bar close to the school. The most special experience of
the day was the storyteller in the afternoon. We were all impressed how
he took us into his story.
Our next point was some work again and afterwards we presented what
we had done and what we have to do in the future.
We had some freetime (some of us visited a shopping mall near the
school). In the evening we were listening to the school-concert and the
Comenius-project presented a song together. Some students from the
other countries were not afraid to show their talents as well. Time went
by so fast and sadly we had to say goodbye to the Irish students now :(.
Back in the hotel, we were thinking about the time in Ireland. This made
us thankful that we could have been there but also sad because we had
to leave soon.
We really enjoyed our last breakfast in
Ireland. We needed to say goodbye to the
other students and get ready for our
journey back home.Then we were picked
up by a taxi to the airport. At the airport we
had some time for buying last souvenirs
and to drink our last Irish coffee. Goodbye
