Irish language courses in the heart of Dublin

An Crsa / The Course

Why choose Asheld College?

Our students are required to speak Irish all of the time, thus being fully immersed in the language for 7 hours every day. This ensures that students gain a valuable understanding of their Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate courses while also taking part in sports, arts, drama, day trips and social events all through the medium of Irish.

Each morning, students will attend Irish classes structured around the Junior or Leaving Certificate examinations. Ashfield College has a long and proud tradition of preparing students for these daunting exams and we believe that a combination of expert teaching and excellent class notes are amongst the secrets to success. Particular focus will be given to the importance of the Aural and Oral components of the exams. In the afternoon, students will take part in a variety of sports, fitness programmes, arts & drama and music while in the evening the main focus is on concerts, day trips, ceilis, quizzes and cinema nights. This is all done through the medium of Irish and is supervised by our teachers.
