Newly Launched 14 Day Recession Busting Summer Course A MASSIVE SUCCESS!!!! So much so that we have added another course!!!

2012 saw the launch of our 14 day Gaeltacht courses which were fully booked very early in 2013.

Course Dates:

D: 24/06/14 – 08/07/14

E: 09/07/14 – 23/07/14

F:  23/07/14   –  06/08/14

A brief history: We in Coláiste Cholumba are well aware that during these difficult economic times, it may not always be feasible to attend Irish Summer courses in the Gaeltacht as often as one may like. In addition some may find that 3 weeks away is just a little bit too long, especially for those who are younger and may be going away for the first time.

With this in mind we piloted a new, shorter Gaeltacht course in 2011. Such was the demand, that this special course was booked out in only a few weeks. We also requested feedback from many of those that attended this pilot course and based on the information received we have redesigned the course in some areas.

So now you can spend 14 days in one of the best Irish Summer colleges in the Connemara Gaeltacht, enjoying the same spraoi, spóirt, craic and ceol and all for the unbelieveable price of €650. This price includes full tuition, full accommodation and board, all the spórts activities and our famous céili’s and Disco’s!!!

Some terms and conditions apply but not many!! For an application form please click on the ’Application Forms’  tab above.

PLEASE NOTE: SPACES FOR THE ABOVE COURSE IS VERY LIMITED DUE TO THE POPULARITY OF OUR 3 WEEK COURSES SO EARLY BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL TO AVOID DISSAPPOINTMENT.
