English School Activities

When you come to study at English Language Ireland, you will attend expert classes to improve your English, and you will also have the opportunity to do much more.

Because Carlow has a great range of sporting and leisure facilities for you to enjoy during your free time, including a public swimming pool, bowling alley, tennis courts, and many sports clubs including football (soccer), rugby, and the Irish national sports of gaelic football and hurling all of these opportunities are ‘on your doorstep!

Cruising, Rowing and Canoeing are also very popular on the Rivers Barrow and Slaney. Two local universities give Carlow a vibrant nightlife throughout the week and with two cinemas and plenty of local activity clubs, community groups and volunteering opportunities, you never have an excuse to be bored in Carlow.

If you are staying long-term in Carlow and have a particular interest in a sport or any other activity, we can put you in touch with local clubs or organisations so you can join them during your time spent here.

We also arrange activities and outings ourselves for adult students –and friendly locals will give you a chance to practice your English wherever you choose to go!
