I had the most unforgettable memories from my trip to Ireland and I have fallen in love with this beautiful country.  My mind has been blown away by the amazing views of green landscapes, fresh air and the power of the waves and wind at the Cliffs of Moher. I felt as if I was standing at the end of world. I had the most amazing time in Dublin School of English and I hope to return there again…

I had a great time in DSE. When I arrived, I couldn't speak English very well. Our teachers taught us very kindly. They helped me after school with questions like banking and transport and life in Dublin. Now, I have a lot of friends from other countries!

Opening bank accounts? Let me save you some time: AIB Bank will not open bank accounts for students staying on courses of 8 months. That means all English language students. Their pathetic excuse? They are "made implement these rules" by the Central Bank of Ireland. It's funny (not) how the Central Bank of Ireland do not agree and how other banks have chosen to interpret the rules differently. Disgraceful behaviour for a state owned bank. If you need a bank account our partners in Bank of Ireland will happily open one for you. Just ask at the DSE reception desk. #aibbank #useless #boi #bankofireland ... See MoreSee Less
