Coláiste na nGael

Britain's Irish language network

WELCOME to the website for people in Britain interested in learning Irish or in meeting people who speak Irish.

Coláiste na nGael is part of a very lively Irish language scene in Britain and Europe. Coláiste na nGael and its allies run Irish language events, which include classes, all over Britain. This year we are arranging one and two-day events in Essex, Leicestershire and Somerset.

We are pleased to be able to bring you a list of Irish Language Classes which take place in locations through out Britain.

Good News: We are now on Facebook and Wikipedia.


Events for 2014

12 July 2014: Picnic sa Pháirc, Hyde Park London

Whether you speak fluent Irish or just have "cúpla focal" you'll get a warm welcome to the Picnic in the Park. You are encouraged to bring musical instruments etc. to the picnic.

Meet at the Round Pond, Kensington Gardens - 2 pm till late. We will be at the northern side of the pond, five minutes walk from Queensway station. You can recognise us by the large flag with Fáilte written on it. Dechchairs can be hired nearby, but it would be worth having a blanket or towel (particularly if you fancy going sunbathing).

All you need is something to eat (and to share), something to drink, a smile on your face and a willingness to speak a little Irish (no matter what standard). Further details

10-12 October 2014 Irish Conservation Course at Knuston Hall, Northamptonshire. Just a few places left (May 2014)


27 - 29 June 2015 Course in the Isle of Wight. Application form and further detail


Gaeilge 2016 - Ar aghaidh linn!

At Easter 2011, Colaiste na nGael launched 'Gaeilge 2016'. This is a five-year programme of events to support and encourage the greater use of Irish in Britain. At present, people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds are studying Irish. We invite all people to commit to learning Irish so that five years from now, they will have achieved a high proficiency in Irish. Irish is a beautiful language. Commit to Irish! Commit to 'Gaeilge 2016!'.
