Course Overview

This programme offers the opportunity to learn Irish in its natural environment. A range of Irish-language courses are offered at beginners’, elementary, intermediate and advanced levels each summer.

These courses are based at the University’s Irish Language Centre (Áras Mháirtín Uí Chadhain), An Cheathrú Rua in the heart of Connemara. Quite apart from being a region of great beauty, Connemara is a major Gaeltacht (Irish-speaking district) and has a rich folk tradition. The village of An Cheathrú Rua provides an ideal location for learning Irish.
