"I feel Gaeltacht na nDéise is a very vibrant community"
Bhí an tseachtain go hiontach. Bhí a lán rudaí ar siúl, ranganna, filíocht, bia den scoth, amhránaíocht – gach rud. 10 out of 10

“Bhí turas againn gach tráthnóna, bhí sé an-shuimiúil ag féachaint ar gach rud faoin stair agus faoin gcultúr sa cheantar seo.  I would rate it as 10 out of 10 down here in Gaeltacht na nDéise.  Beautiful people, beautiful scenery, everybody was so nice and I’m sad to be leaving.  The week was very organized and very well distributed.  There was two learning sessions in the mornings, 3 meals per day and excursions in the afternoon.  In the evenings there was a variety of different events.  As new learners coming from America and abroad and other places, there were daoine líofa that we could interact with and get a taste of the language, a very balanced week.”

“I was very impressed with the facilities in particular the people and the energy the Gaeltacht has in an Rinn is very impressive.  The teacher I had was wonderful.  Staff couldn’t have been more friendly.  I enjoyed the seaweed bath, as well as mass every day!

There was a sense of Irish speaking all day which was really wonderful.

I appreciated the sense of community and the care that everyone had for each other that I felt.  The céilís and concerts were great, I think the programme here has enormous potential and I can see other Americans visiting and giving this Gaeltacht a chance.”
