Welcome to our new miniseries ‘Thibault’s Adventures’, written by our new marketing intern Thibault. In the series, he will tell us about the various excursions he goes on as an Alpha student. Students can participate in many excursions and activities during their time at Alpha College. Excursions are free of charge, open to all students, and are an excellent way to practise speaking English with others. Taking part is also a great chance to make friends and explore the Emerald Isle! Excursions are led by one of our guides, and offer an in-depth look at Irish history and culture. The trips usually take place within Dublin, and in the summer months the tour groups venture outside of Dublin. For example, Castletown House, Powerscourt, and Glendalough are all on the list of summer visits. See below for Thibault’s first post!


Alpha visit: 17th and 18th May

Last week, our students had the opportunity to visit 2 magical places in Dublin. Guinness Storehouse and Howth!

Guiness Storehouse, 17th May

On Friday, our students went to the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin. This brewery of 7 floors was one of the first Guinness warehouses.

Now converted into a museum, Alpha students could discover the history and the steps involved in the creation of this famous Irish beer.

At the end of the visit, in the Gravity Bar on the 7th floor, Guinness gave us the opportunity to try their beer!




Howth, 17th May

On Saturday, Alpha students went to a little fishing town named Howth.

They were able to discover the beautiful landscape along the cliff.

It was a good chance to take pictures of the beautiful Irish landscape and to have wonderful memories of their stay in Ireland!
