Located in the heart of the true Connemara Gaeltacht in Ceantar na nOileán, Coláiste na nOileán promises plenty of ceoil agus craic this summer. Established more than 50 years ago, Coláiste na nOileán is one of the longest-running Irish colleges.
Catering for children and young adults aged 10 to 18, the college offers a great selection of course options: specially designed five day residential courses run in the month of July, for fifth and sixth class primary pupils, which offers the same spraoi, spóirt and craic packed into five days. This completely separate and fully supervised course is especially designed around parents’ requests and caters specifically for this age group.
The popular three-week stay runs in the months of June July and August and caters for 10 to 18-year-olds with special courses for those sitting the Leaving Cert and Junior Cert in 2014.
There is also a one, two, and three day Gaeltacht activity course during the school year that would suit all ages from fifth and sixth class to transition year. Each course is a mini-Gaeltacht course, packed full of all the activities.
Learning Irish should be fun as this helps to cultivate a love for the Irish language and its culture, a formula that has made Coláiste na n-Oileán a huge success for half a century.
It is running a special offer for Valentine’s week, and the week after, so don’t delay.
