A good Irish course?

Hi all,

could you please suggest a good Irish course in Ireland?
What I found on the Internet is not what I'm looking for: schools to improve your language skills (I would be a beginner) or teenager focused, summer schools for kids or adults which offer very short courses, on the other side too detailed University courses (too many classes on old Irish, writing, bards... which are all very interesting, but learning the basics first would be ideal) and not many chances for non-speakers there.
What I'm looking for is an adult language course, that would teach "Irish as a foreign language", starting from the very basics and reaching good writing/reading/conversation skills through different levels... Any suggestions? ANYWHERE in Ireland would do!

Many thanks in advance!

Oideas Gael Jun 22, 2009

I spent two weeks at Oideas Gael a few years ago and I had a fantastic time. The classes were good and the social life in the evenings was very lively. The countryside surrounding the school is also very dramatic. All in all, I'd recommend it.

...think I found something that looks like it... Jun 22, 2009

I heard so much about Oideas Gael it was one of the first schools I checked. They have beginners courses... thing is, though, they concentrate too much on conversation and leave aside reading/writing/grammar, plus they have no full-year schedule, just summer courses while I'm looking for something regular (a few hours per week, for 12 months or so).

Anyway thanks a million Sean and Lesley for suggesting it (maybe, when my level is intermediate or so, I'll take a summer class in Donegal).

Thank you Agnes for your links: following the "euro-pages" one I think I found what I'm looking for: Gael Linn, Conradh na Gaeilge, and GaelChultur are Dublin based schools and organisations offering long courses, different levels and all the subjects I need... I'll ring and see what suits best.

Meanwhile if you'd like to recommend one of them or know about other schools/Colleges/Universities, your opinion is still welcome!!

Thanks and Regards,
