School Tour to Wicklow
On Monday June 13th we set off early on our school tour to Wicklow. Our first stop was Wicklow Gaol where the children were able to see inside the old jail, exercise yard and the cells themselves. The tour guides were excellent and really added to the atmosphere of hard times in the past. We then travelled to beautiful Glendalough which had its own charm of bygone days with a great feeling of history and solitude.
Our last stop was Clara Lara! The day brightened and we were able to take full advantage of having the place to ourselves! The boys and girls had great fun on the various activities and were not afraid to get wet…as is evident in the pictures below! It most certainly was an action-packed and enjoyable day!
School Tour to Dublin
We arrived in Dublin at 10.20 and had a relaxing lunch in Dublinia before starting our tour at 11.00. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and enjoyed the banter with our pupils. We split into 2 groups and were guided around the exhibition of Viking Dublin. The children really enjoyed the experience of learning about the customs of the Vikings and the life of ordinary people at the time.
Next stop was St. Patrick’s Cathedral to learn about its most famous Dean, Johnathan Swift, who wrote Gulliver’s Travels. We were told the history of the door, where the pupils were encouraged to “chance their arm” through a narrow opening in the door.
We had a lovely outdoor picnic in the adjacent park while we waited for our Viking Bus at 2.00. The tour of the city on this Bus is really enjoyable and full of fun. The children enjoyed the trip and the weather was very kind to us as we travelled along the streets before reaching the Grand Canal Basin, where the wartime amphibious vehicle enters the water and floats like a “duck”.
