Leisure time


My time at the school was incredible!!! I've already recommended it to many of my friends. Mackdonald school helped me with everything I had problems with during my 4 months in Ireland.


It was wonderful :) I became friends with teachers, students, and my host family, and I really enjoyed everything. I'm hoping to come back the next year!


My son found trip to this school very positive.
