Irland-Rundreise des Englisch-LKs 2009

After a stressful two semesters of English Advanced Course stuffed with discussions on questions of identity, multi-culturalism and the omnipresent issue of globalization, we were finally to experience all of what we had talked about during class, in the field. Within an intensive five days of touring through Ireland we got to feel the spirit of the emerald isle. Whether roaming through the streets of Galway on a drizzly Monday night and starting to befriend the Irish’s favourite drink while listening to live music, exploring the town of Killarney on a dry Tuesday night or wandering about in the nation’s capital, we did it all.

Nevertheless, we also engaged in a lot of daytime activity, such as fun bus rides through the green island, interrupted only by the hop-off hop-on photo opportunities stops. Seeing the famous Cliffs of Moher taught us humility in the face of nature, walking through Kilmainham Gaol, a shut-down Dublin prison, showed us where we didn’t want to end up.

Looking back on the five days we may as well be happy about all the educational value the trip certainly had, but we in fact really are more than ecstatic about all the fun we had during our time in the land of clovers and leprechauns. Slán go fóil Eíre!
