English Language Ireland is the perfect choice of English school if considering travelling to Ireland to learn English, or sending your child to learn here.

Our warm and caring approach, our expert tuition, and our location in a small and safe town (population 25,000) all add up to promises of both quality education and personal security for students of all ages.

Our caring approach

We pride ourselves on creating a fun and friendly learning environment, and in getting to know all our students personally. As we often say: ‘Come here as a student – leave here as a friend!’

Junior students, in particular, can expect a family-style atmosphere at our English language school. They will also enjoy all the comforts of home as they stay with one of our carefully chosen host families.

We know all our host families personally, and we take care to place every student with the host family that can provide them with the best welcome and care during their time spent learning English in Ireland.

Adult students who come to learn English with us are also assured of a hearty and friendly welcome. We help them with advice on living in Ireland and with making the most of their time in our beautiful country outside of class, and we count as friends many of those who have studied with us in the past.

For all students – junior and adult – we quickly respond to any problems that may arise and, offer all help and support needed. We treat students as though they are part of the family, and that is just one of the many things that makes English Language Ireland a great place to come learn English in Ireland.

Our expert tuition

All our teachers are carefully chosen and all are highly qualified and experienced in teaching English to international students. They create a warm and fun classroom atmosphere, where students are encouraged to learn from each other as well as from the teacher.

Many of our programmes are tailor-made to the student’s own individual needs, and our teachers on these programmes work closely with the student at all times to ensure maximum benefit and the best possible learning outcome.

In the case of junior students choosing a High School Programme or High School Integration Programme, they will be learning from professional Irish teachers in the Irish High School system, which is regarded as one of the best in the world. We have close relationships with all local High Schools and we can vouch for the quality and integrity of their teaching staff.
