Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I can really recommend the Temple Bar Food Market. Also very recommandable is Bewley's Oriental Cafe which serves delicious breakfast like porridges and Full Irish Brakefast. Also don't miss Howth on a Sunday when the market takes place. Enjoy the seaside atmosphere and have a bowl of fish soup at Ivan's or an Irish coffee at Abbey Tavern.

I guess the best teachers were Liam and Mick. They were always very funny and adapted their lessons according the student's interests and questions.
