The cross-cultural aspect of your experience in Dublin is very important to us and
the Kenilworth Social and Cultural Programme is a big part of this. Kenilworth organizes
many extra-curricular activities during the academic year such as lectures, videos,
barbeques, excursions outside the city, tours of galleries and museums and, of course,
visits to good Dublin Pubs. Many students greatly value this opportunity, outside
of class time, to meet and form new friendships with other students from different
countries and cultures and to interact with their teachers. Excursions provide students
with a unique opportunity to practise their English in authentic settings.
We spend a lot of time and energy making sure that the Social Programme is as varied
and interesting as possible. Kenilworth guides are experienced and knowledgeable
about Dublin's most interesting places and features.
During the academic year, we organise a minimum one afternoon guided tour a week
to a place of interest in Dublin.
We show English language films in the afternoon in our Video Room (with popcorn provided.)
We make information available on our ‘What’s On’ Notice Board about visits, excursions
and events which students may enjoy.
Weekend excursions are optional during the academic year and are usually not included
in the course fee.
We organise evening activities, such as a trip to a pub to listen to Irish music.
We organise fun activities such as bowling or Quazar, a Treasure Hunt, a Table Quiz
or a Talent Show.
We are constantly seeking to develop and expand our Social and Cultural Programme
to enrich our students’ experience during their stay in Ireland.
