English Courses for Adults - Activity Programmes

It's not all hard work at DLTC. We provide weekly entertainment and sightseeing opportunities so you can enjoy your stay in Ireland and explore the country too.

Each week the school organises at least one free social event for all students on our adult summer course to bring students together so that they can get to know each other, can practice their English in an informal way and have some fun.

In addition, students have the option of pre-purchasing a set programme of scheduled weekly activities such as Bowling nights; Irish Dancing; Cycling in the Phoenix Park; Greyhound (Dog) Racing; Guinness Storehouse; Jameson Distillery; Croke Park (Gaelic Sports Stadium and Museum); Coastal/Countryside Treks.

For prices and full details of the optional activity programme, please contact us here

Day tours >

On the weekends we suggest you explore some of Ireland’s beautiful sights. We can book the following guided day tours for you when are here.

(But please note: these tours are supplied by tour companies and not by DLTC – they are not part of our activity packages. Some of these tours start very early from Dublin city centre and you may need to travel by taxi in order to join them. Taxi fares are not included in tour prices and, while we are happy to help you book taxis, DLTC cannot be responsible for arrival or non-arrival of taxis.

  • Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland and about 2 hours from Dublin. Your guide and private bus will take you around the city visiting East Belfast (the birthplace of the Titanic) and West Belfast and areas made famous by war (or infamous) in recent history. In the afternoon, your tour will explore some areas outside of Belfast including the Downpatrick and the beautiful Mourne Mountains.
  • West Coast of Ireland and the Cliffs of Moher - the cliffs of Moher are a Unesco world heritage site and famous throughout the world for their impressive natural beauty. You will travel by private bus with a tour guide from Dublin to Limerick (short visit) and along the West coast to the cliffs. You will stop at the visitor centre and have time to walk along the cliffs and admire the view. There will be a stop at the beautiful village of Doolin, a short trek in the Burren National Park, and photo opportunities at Corcomroe Abbey and Dunguaire Castle. This is a long 1-day trip which takes about 12 hours in total but is well worth the effort.
  • Connemara and Galway - Galway city is the capital of the west coast of Ireland and is famous as the bohemian capital of Ireland. Although officially a city, its centre has all the characteristics of a large traditional Irish village. You will have a short stop here in the morning (and again on your return journey in the evening) after which you will travel out into Connemara and its world-famous wild landscape. Your bus with guide will drive you through the Connemara National Park with a stop at the unmistakeable Kylemore Abbey. During summer, there will be a 1.5 cruise by boat at Killary Fjord on the Atlantic coast.
  • A Unesco World Heritage site the Giant’s Causeway is one of the most distinctive places you will find on the island of Ireland. Your knowledgeable guide and tour bus brings you into Northern Ireland and to the exhilarating Carrick-a-rede rope bridge; along the stunning Antrim Coast from where you can see Scotland; and to the Causeway visitors centre. After a scenic drive past Dunluce Castle, the tour includes a short stop in Belfast on the way back to Dublin. This tour starts at 6.30am from Dublin and returns about 7.30pm.
