"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!
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, so let me help you 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

"The way in which the language was introduced and explained was excellent. The classes were light and fun. After years of trying to help my children with their Irish homework I finally can!"

A little bit about me...
Patricia Nic Eoin is ainm dom. I've worked with some of the big names in language learning (the Michel Thomas Method; the Olly Richards Story Learning series) and I've also deveoped my own courses for teaching Irish.
I'm a qualified solicitor and I've worked as an Irish language translator at the European Commission in Brussels. I live in Galway city, but am originally from the small village of Kinvara on the south shores of Galway Bay.
