Beginner Irish

Start learning the Irish language today with no previous knowledge

 "I have learned more Irish in these eight weeks than in all my previous efforts". 

Carmel O'Connor, Manchester

To learn Irish is to unlock a deeper connection with the culture, history, people and landscapes of Ireland


The Irish language has been spoken in Ireland for over 2,000 years. Many of the Irish people who were forced to leave Ireland were Irish speakers, who lost their native language in order to survive and adapt to their new country. Many of those remaining in Ireland also lost their native language due to social and economic forces.



Beginner Irish is a fun and fascinating course and is by far the best method for learning a language that I have come across".

Richard Barrett, Los Angeles

 Have you already tried to learn Irish?

If you want to see real progress, and fast, then you need a carefully structured course and a great teacher!

The Irish language is truly beautiful, and not nearly as hard to learn as the prospective Irish language learner might think! The language is steeped in Irish culture and is still taught in Irish schools today. However, my method varies greatly from that of school teachers. I won't need you to memorize long lists of Irish words or phrases. Rather, my online Irish courses are designed to get you to speak Irish straight away. We'll work on building your Irish vocabulary so that you can have basic conversations in Irish very quickly. Learning a new language can be daunting. For this reason my self-study course include one individual class with me to help you stick with the course and learn to speak Irish in the easiest and quickest way possible.


Duolingo is a great place to start learning Irish....but it cannot replace a live class with a real teacher!


Watching videos on Youtube is fine, but the lack of a carefully laid out progressive learning plan will slow down learning.


Why spend hours grappling with text books and grammar books trying to learn Irish on your own when I can teach it to you in no time at all!

"I'm an Irish-American who has been trying to teach herself Irish on and off for a few years. I've tried a few self-taught methods, but grammar and pronunciation problems always tripped me up. Then I did Beginner Irish and that was when I really started to see progress."

Meghan Wherrity, Philadelphia
