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.

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!
