A journey to the centre of the Earth

10th May

After our morning classes  we had lunch on the Butler House Gardens and headed to the impressive Dunmore Caves. There we learnt that the action of water over limestone rock is the responsible for the formation of these incredible caves. 😮 On our way back, we made a quick stop to enjoy the beautiful Jenkinstown Park where we could see different species of animals and plants, such as deers, jackdaws, beeches, horse chestnuts, holly trees… And, back to Kilkenny! There our families were waiting to share the rest of the evening with us.

Después de nuestras clases de inglés comimos en los jardines de Butler House y salimos para visitar las impresionantes cuevas de Dunmore. Allí aprendimos que la acción del agua sobre la roca caliza es responsable de la formación de estas cuevas. En el camino de vuelta hicimos una parada para disfrutar el bonito parque de Jenkinstown donde pudimos ver diferentes especies de animales y plantas como ciervos, grajillas, hayas, castaños de indias, acebos… y de vuelta a Kilkenny! Allí estaban nuestras familias esperándonos para pasar el resto de la tarde con ellos.
