After a long trip on Saturday, filled with a three hour bus ride to Bratislava and another three hours on the plane, we finally touched down in Dublin. In the evening we had the chance to gain a first impression of Ireland and explore the beautiful city Dublin. On the next day we had the unique Viking Splash Tour. The Viking Splash Tour is an unusual sightseeing tour during which you can see and learn about the sights of Dublin by land and by water.

In the afternoon we started another bus trip to Galway, where our host families finally picked us up. The next few days were very busy for us. In the morning we always had school until 1 p.m. and in the afternoon we had lots of activities like a treasure hunt, a tour through the Galway Aquarium, a walking tour through Galway, a pub evening and an Irish dance evening. For most of us the highlight of the week was the trip to the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. On the last day we spent in Galway we went to the Galway Greyhound Stadium to watch dog races. The entrance fee for us students was paid by the parents’ association (Elternverein) of the BG/BRG Judenburg and we would like to say thank you at this point.


In a nutshell, all of the activities were great and we had so much fun during this lovely week! We shouldn’t forget to mention that the weather in Ireland was gorgeous! Unfortunately we already had to leave on Saturday. We had to get up at around 3.30 a.m. to travel back home. After two long trips by bus and the flight we finally arrived in Judenburg at 5.30 p.m.


It was a great trip, but coming back home is also a great thing. At this point we also want to thank our teachers Ms Tatschl, Ms Kassl and Mr Traar for this great week. Everybody has improved their English skills and we learned so much about this foreign and amazing culture.



Thank you! We will never forget this great journey.
