Cultural Stay Programme


The Cultural Stay Programme at Shannon Academy is a new and exciting way for students to learn English in a fun and engaging manner through interaction with native, Irish teenagers.

The programme, which can be either of one or two weeks’ duration, involves a class of visiting students integrating with Irish Transition Year (4th Year) students.

In keeping with our principle of flexibility, our Cultural Stay Programme can be customised and planned by the individual school or group. Visiting groups can select from a wide range of activities, day trips, excursions and activities to enjoy during their cultural stay.

This programme normally includes a trip each day to a different place of interest. It also includes an Irish cultural evening with traditional Irish music and dancing with an opportunity for the group to dance and also to showcase their own talents. Treasure hunts and evenings of traditional Irish sports can also be accommodated.
