8. Live actors brought us on an action tour of historical Dalkey castle. We learned about medical treatments, food and defence, and how to dance for the King.
9. Next we had lunch in the Tram Yard Caf. A spread of soup and sandwiches. And a special birthday surprise for one of the visiting Italians.
10. Next we had a long bus trip with a quick stop off in Bray. Our destination: Glendalough (the valley of two lakes) a famous monastic settlement and a popular tourist sight in Ireland.
11. In Glendalough we went on a short hike, where although you cant see from the pictures it was lightly snowing. And of course a group photo was in order in the end.
12. Then another long bus journey brought us back to the hotel where the visiting students, teachers and a few Irish students sat down to dinner together.
