Thinking of a family holiday with a difference this year?  

Why not combine a fun-filled week in one of Ireland's most scenic places with helping your children (and yourself!) to improve your Irish?  

This is a unique opportunity for your family to spend quality time together in a peaceful and relaxing environment, while taking part in classes and activities with other families from all over Ireland who want to give their children a head-start with Irish. 

During the week parents will receive expert and focused tuition from our qualified and experienced teagascóirí while children will take an active part in a wide variety of activities conducted as Gaeilge by vetted and experienced áisitheoirí.  The emphasis is on enjoyment and helping your family to integrate the Irish language in a natural way in your home. This course has won a European Language Label Award in 2017.

Each morning, children take part in fully supervised and facilitated classes, sports and cultural activities while the grown-ups brush up on their Irish skills.  After a tea break around about 11 am, everyone gets together for activities as Gaeilge to put into practice what you have learned up to now.  In the afternoons the focus is on a wide variety of activities which everyone can take an active part in, including art, cluichí spóirt, horse riding, rinnce le céile, Treasure Hunt.

In the evening you will have an option of meeting the other families for supper, or you may wish to join the other parents for a seisiún ceoil in one of the local hostelries.  Local child minders are available to look after your children while you take a well-earned break.
