Why visit Dublin?
Complex political history
For those studying the politics, Dublin is a fantastic destination for a school trip. Here, your students will explore the complicated political history between the two countries, from Home Rule to the Easter Rising and the Partition of Ireland.
You can visit Kilmainham Gaol, which is considered one of the country's most important monuments related to the struggle for Irish independence. Many nationalist leaders were imprisoned and even executed here. Your tour guide will bring their stories to life for your students, helping them to understand the long and difficult road to independence.
Another popular visit for politics groups is Glasnevin Cemetery and its museum. Many important national figures are buried here, including many nationalist leaders. Again, this is a fantastic visit in terms of helping your students to understand both the timeline of events and the roles of many of the key figures in the struggle for Irish independence.
Dublin is also a fantastic choice of destination for food technology groups, especially those who are interested in food and drink production.
The Guinness Storehouse is one of Dublin’s most popular attractions. Here, your students can learn about the brewing process and discover the history of the brand, including how it has been marketed throughout the years.
And the Old Jameson Distillery Tour is a great complement to a visit to the Guinness Storehouse, as students will see how different the distilling process is to the brewing process.
Dublin is also famous for its chocolate and there are a couple of tours available giving your students a fascinating insight into the history of chocolate and the chocolate making process. The Butlers Chocolate Experience also offers the opportunity to learn more about the history of the iconic Irish chocolate brand.
And we can even arrange for your students to enjoy a cookery lesson at Dublin Cookery School, where they’ll prepare a three-course meal for themselves under the expert supervision of the school’s professional tutors.
