Dublin Castle and Chester Beatty Library

Price: Entry to Castle is €6 with student id
The Brits ruled us from here for hundreds of years. Now they’re gone some of our government offices are here but it’s also a popular tourist attraction. You can look around the grounds and castle itself, where you will find art and photographic exhibitions. Then, we’ll head over to the Chester Beatty Library in the castle grounds to see manuscripts, rare books, and other treasures from Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Asia.
Friday, 20th September
Meet at 4:30pm at 23, Marlborough Street, Dublin 1.
Once a year, venues and public spaces across the island of Ireland open their doors to host a programme of free late-night entertainment, as part of an all-island celebration of arts, heritage and culture. We’ll walk around the city visiting some of the best of the free stuff. Ah sure, we might stop for a pint somewhere as well.

Au Pair Club : Café

Sunday, 22nd September
Belfast and Titanic Experience
Dublin is great, but if you feel the need for something different, why not join us for a trip to historical Belfast, just a short journey up the road? Enjoy driving through the Irish countryside until we reach a city with a turbulent past. Part of the city’s legacy is the Belfast City Peace Wall dividing the Protestant and Catholic communities. Part of your tour is a political taxi tour with a local guide around West Belfast. We will also explore the Titanic visitor experience.
