Last december, euroclass students went for a week to the irish capital city for an unforgetable trip. They tell us here the visits they enjoy the most.
Visit the nursing home
We are going to talk about the nursing-home we visited in Dublin – Belmont Nursing Home. It’s a private place. We talked to the director. The director explained the fonctioning of the structure in English. We visited and observed the views that there were from rooms that cost 1800 € per week because it is a privilege and according to the sea view while in our region there only are public nursing-homes at the price of 1500€ per month per room. We liked the nursing-home very much, as we are in human service sector.
The Enchanted Botanical Gardens
We visited the Botanical Garden. They are very beautiful and interresting because of the diversity and sunptouosness of nature. It’s very tall and the Botanical Garden is managed by the apprentice landscapers. The College is located in the Botanical Garden and welcomes 300 students.
Our immersion in a perfect host family
During our stay in Ireland, we were welcomed by an Irish couple who had two children. We were very well received, we were staying on the floor of the house which was only for us. In the evening we shared meals together. In the morning we prepared the packed lunch ourselves. They were a very welcoming family, who were there for us in case of need.
Christmas is very important to them

The main link is the Commision propose legislation and the Parliament discuss legislation and vote on legislation so that’s the link. To terms of every day working together we sometimes have shared goals and we also have sometimes differences andgot to compromise.
