Overview

Travel Talk is our cultural activities course especially created for the over 50 age group.

 

The programme is tailor-made to meet the demands of this group. We combine lots of engaging and enjoyable speaking activities and discussions – all through English – with different opportunities to explore Ireland’s special cultural heritage.

 

As well as becoming familiar with many aspects of Irish life and culture participants also value the opportunity to share information about their own experiences and cultures within the group.

More information

We have a general schedule of topics and activities that will be presented at the beginning of the course. Participants can then decide together if there are any aspects they would like to adjust, so we can better accommodate specific interests within the group.

 

If pre-arranged, closed groups with a minimum of 8 participants can be provided for. Such closed groups can focus on the interest of the group such as music, history, architecture, gardening or sports such as golf. Participants can, if they wish, even start a new skill with some lessons in basic computer skills or digital photography

 

Accommodation is not included, but we have several options for you to choose from. See what we have on offer in Dublin here, or contact us for more options and information.
