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.

They are very kind and friendly to help you for everything (to find a job, hostfamily). So, it's difficult to feel alone there because they offer you differents activities where you can meet people from other places.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Try to be in your right English level and if you can, do english afternoon lessons. There you'll improve more your lenguage because there are less students.
